That's a really cool attitude that you have. All types of experiences, even the sad ones, are still experiences that help guide and shape our future. Loved ones do usually have your best interest at heart, so it does make sense that they can biased. I think it's good that you are allowing yourself to validate how you feel. We get all sorts of information from others, but at the end of the day, we are the ones who are responsible with steering that ship. I guess that's also a part of life.
Hope you're looking after yourself tonight!
