In my experience, if I’m unsure of something or feel overwhelmed, I’ve looked to friends and mentors for advise. Ultimately, I realized that this is not the way to go. You can always find someone who will tell you what you want to hear. If this works for you, then by all means carry on in this vein. Just be ready to suffer the consequences. Anyone you ask for help has their own distorted perspective on the subject and most likely, you are not getting the information you really need. You are acting against your own intuition. Just saying!
