Do you ask for suggestions

Life is filled with decision making moments. Sometimes we know what to do , sometimes we need assistance. I know of people who ask for suggestions and then do what they have decided even before they asked you. Then there are those who ask but knock down every one of your suggestions for no good reason. There are the others who just think for themselves and go with what they decide. There are also those who ask everyone and do a bit of what everyone tells them. I do not ask for suggestions very often, I decide what I want to do and go on with it, if it only concerns me. However i do take suggestions from others if they would be affected by my decisions..I try to find one that works for everyone. Do you ask for suggestion and how do you act on them.?

At this age, I rarely ask for suggestions unless I need an expert opinion on something which I lack knowledge or experience. I will do some research on the internet to understand the situation or problem. If there is a Bible principle involved then I will meditate on pertinent passages. The thing is to avoid problems as much as possible!

@1hopefulman You seem to have a very clear and practical approach to life. I like the fact that you also make sure that the decisions you make comply with your belief system. I am like that too.

@sofssu Thank you! Yes, I think that when a problem or decisions presents itself the best and first thing to do is to approach God in prayer and seek his guidance and help. I have a feeling that it is also what you do.

I do ask for suggestions. But people in my life are ran out. and it's harder to make new friends from which I can take advice.

@sofssu No I mean I don't have those friends around. and the type of people that I have around are not worth taking advice.

I do not ask for suggestion often, I usually know what to do. I can ask for suggestion to a professional and follow what I learn.

@sofssu If there are things that I do not know, I search the Internet first, but if it's important I also ask a professional.

By time, less and less. I want a simple suggestion and, I don't always get it. Many times, I regret asking at all.

It all depends on what I'm asking a suggestion for, if it food I will surely ask but other things I just go with whatever I want.
