Meditating On Any Advice They Give You

Thinking about what your friends tell you for an extensive amount of time will show you that your friends are just speaking nonsense. Knowing yourself includes knowing how you respond and interact with people as well. Stop ignoring any comment that your friends make about your life. Instead, be open to listening and listen closely.

Observe How They Respond to Tough Situations

Your friends will deal with situations differently than you. This doesn’t mean that they are wrong but that they have a different view of the situation in front of them. Humans learn from each other through action, when we're younger we learn how to pour juice into a cup by watching our parents do it for a certain amount of time.

Implementing Their Advice Into Your Life

This is probably the hardest part of the whole process, this part takes time and patience. You will never be 100 percent like your friend and you shouldn’t strive to be. You will have an easier time implementing their advice into your life once you’re not ashamed of who you are.
