Do you always want the good of a person, offer a lot of advice, but he doesn't give it due importance? know how to give up on someone, when that someone doesn't care what you say.
I once heard a phrase from my grandmother something like this:
You can lead the horse to water, but you cannot force it to drink.
How to give up on someone: Do you know the horse metaphor?
In many cases, the people we try to help act like this metaphor of taking the horse to the water.
There are some people you can show opportunities to, say that what she's doing isn't cool or that her future isn't very promising doing what she does, and they accept.
However, there are also people that you simply need to let go of, let them drink or not drink the water you are showing them.
When you learn this, I believe a world of possibilities opens up for you to just give up on people who don't want to listen or don't want to drink the water you're giving them.
This happens a lot and the more we try to help or force this person to drink the water you are bringing, the worse things get, right?
Don't force the bar!
So, when you find someone in your life that you try to help by showing them the way you believe is the right one, get to the point: show them the water.
If she doesn't want to, let her get thirsty.
From the moment you have the freedom to let go of people, to be aware that you showed her what was right and she made the decision not to follow a certain path, it will be much easier to deal with this situation.
Whenever you give this advice to someone, remember that you can lead the horse to water, but you cannot make him drink that water.
