When things get rough, the easiest thing to do is step back and let someone else take the wheel. We’re all looking for someone to tell us we’re making the right decision, to confirm what we think is correct. […] Even if they have your best interests at heart, nobody but you knows what’s best for you, or can make the really tough calls on your behalf. After all, you know the particular situation better than anyone else possibly could. You know the nuances, you know the people, and you know what you’re willing to do to change things. You also know why you’re asking for advice, and 99 times out of 100 it’s because of your own intuition.
