Each week, Oprah sets an exclusive intent for Oprah Daily Insiders, with meditations on topics like letting go, forgiveness, coming to your own topic, and more. Return to this page every day for inspiration on this week’s topic: Follow the advice of a true friend.
Hello, Oprah Daily Insider,
opera: I’m sitting here with my friend, Gayle.
Gael: BFF Oprah. us again.
a: us again. We were just talking about that last poll that said most people have at least 10 friends, and we were different. I don’t know how you all feel about that.
J: Because you can know a lot of people.
a: I think, of course, we all know 10 people and there are 10 partners in your life, but do you have at least 10 friends? I think this is incredible.
J: I said most of the people I talked to [to]except for Ava – Ava, you know, recently had a big birthday party – she obviously had more than 10. But if I had to go out with a ten, not my relatives …
a: Not relatives, but close friends.
J: …I don’t think I can.
a: That would be difficult because to me a friend is ride or die and a friend is someone who will tell you the truth no matter what.
J: Do not betray your secrets. Ever.
a: He never betrays your secrets.
J: tells you when you’re wrong.
a: tells you when you’re wrong.
J: sometimes repeatedly. You know, years ago, I had an old friend in high school who wanted to reconnect. I haven’t seen him in 20 years, and I said, “Whatever you do, don’t bring him into your house.”
a: Whatever you do, do not bring it into your house.
J: Long story short, I just ignored that advice and brought it to my house – ’cause she said ‘You don’t know anything about him’.
a: After 20 years, you don’t know who the guy is. But she said, “He was the soccer champion” and this was — and I say, “That was 20 years ago.”
J: So the weekend is over, and you call and say, “How was the weekend? Didn’t you bring him home?” I said, “Oh, no, no, no, no, no.”
a: I said: You didn’t take him to your house, did you?
J: “No, I would never do that, no.”
J: And so, Oprah, I said, “Funny, because…”
a: “Funny, because National Enquirer Just called me and said, “–and name the person–“was in your house and they took something from your house, because you’re supposed to have a shrine in your house. to me. “
J: So I’m totally tuned in, and totally tuned out.
a: Well, first of all, there is no shrine.
J: Yes, yes, that’s number one.
a: Number one, there is no shrine. But the person, the old lover of 20 years ago whom you said do not leave your house, has stolen a picture or something from us from the house …
J: And he was trying to sell it.
a: And he was trying to sell it. And Gail is like, “Oh, we had a great time. We went to a play in New York, after dinner.”
J: “And to Central Park.” Anyway, I was totally busted, so Oprah said, “I told you. I told you not to bring him into your house.” So, as a general rule, when you have a best friend who tells you the truth, it’s probably a good idea to take that [their] Advice. But I don’t think a friend is always right. In this particular case, I was.
a: This is correct.
J: Your advice is usually strong.
a: very solid.
J: I think my advice is also strong.
a: very solid, very solid.
J: You can always count on someone to tell you the truth.
a: So we want to know this week, what strong advice did you receive from a friend and stick with it, and what advice you should have followed that you didn’t take?
J: And what advice would you give a friend, even though you know he might not want to hear it? also important.
a: Oh, yeah, that’s a good thing, share it with Oprah Daily.
J🙁Laugh) Yes Yes.
a: Do not tell your friend. Just tell us.
J: Yes, and then we’ll tell her about you – or him.
a: Well, have a good week everyone. Going well.
