Yesterday I had to call my sister’s father for help with something. I told him about my current financial situation and some life choices I’m facing and he said “First world nation, self preservation” I’m pretty sure that’s a quote from a song or something, but he gave me the same piece of advice I’ve heard so many times before. “You can’t help others until you first help your self. Don’t feel like a bad friend or family member if you can’t be there for something. If you can’t afford to be there, you can’t be there.”
I haven’t been able to get my posts to my editor in a timely fashion this week, but that was fresh.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received from a father figure?
