Communication: Journal Prompt 20 – Best Advice

Journal Prompt 20

What is some of the best advice you have ever received?


  • My grandfather told me to “always pay the people you owe, in case you ever need to borrow from them again”.   I learned my lesson on that one.
  • My grandmother used to always say “don’t ever forget where you came from”.  And I don’t.  In fact I visit my hometown of Braddock whenever I visit the Pittsburgh area, just to remember where it all began.
  • My mother used to say “You need to choose between being warm or being cute”.  I bundle up in the winter.  Also, “Crazy people don’t know they’re crazy”.
