Take what you did in Open To Advice Part I a step further. Have an editing conversation with your parents, and continue to practice being open and accepting.
1. Give your piece to a parent or a guardian. Again, have a conversation with them. Really listen to what they have to say, even if you have never asked them for help before.
2. Be conscious of the conversations you just had and revise. Be open to change and help.
Once you have revised your piece with your feedback in mind, go back to either your friend or parents or guardians and have another conversation with them about feedback. Is there more you can improve upon? Keep an open mind -- and talk.
