There are an insane amount of things my dad is always right about.
It’s been a tad infuriating over the years and I’ve rarely admitted to him how spot on his assumptions and advice have been.
He seems to have a gift for always knowing what’s going to happen.
Since I was young, the things my dad is always right about have been adding up.
I don’t always abide by his guidance at first, but in the end what he told me to do in the beginning ends up being the right thing to do.
1. Just Because You Have It Doesn’t Mean You Have to Spend It
Of all the things my dad is always right about, this is the refrain my siblings and I have probably heard the most often.
My sister and I have always been big shoppers and when we were younger, every time we’d leave to go to the mall, we’d ask my dad for some money.
My dad would give us $20 or so and tell us “Just because you have it doesn’t mean you have to spend it.” As someone whose money always burned a hole in my pocket, that was really good advice.
I may not have followed it at the time, but I certainly do now.
