Recently I read a true story. Takeaways:
There are two kinds of advisors in this world:
(a) Those- who hear both sides of the story, filter all exaggerated nonsense and obvious lies, and give advice based on basic principles of truth, fairness, equity and empathy… If they err, they err on the side of kindness;
(b) Those who hear only one side and ill-advise—gloating in their bookish knowledge and wisdom without considering human values, and short and long-term repercussions. They put a price to each emotion and act, and dig long forgotten graves to bring skeletons out. They do enormous harm to all.
The ill-advisor and the ill-advised either have no soul or have sold it.
As a wise person had said— “Soul has no secrets which behaviour doesn’t reveal.”
