When someone gives you advice, do you heed that advice or just think the person is trying to force his morals or opinions on you? And if the advice turns out to be right, and you haven't taken it, leading to unfortunate results, how do you feel or what do you think afterwords?

It is always hard to listen to other people's advice, especially if you feel as though they are being forceful. I find that with my daughter. Everyone has advice. You just have to listen and be patient and judge what you think is good and what won't work for you. Try not to let anyone force you into something you don't believe in.

Sounds to me like you're willing to take the consequences of your actions and not pass the buck.
