You can't accept everything from everyone.  You shouldn't expect kind words from everyone.  Sometimes you have to be aware of who has wise words to offer and who just has their two cents to put in.  Weigh words wisely.  An old Danish proverb says: ask advice only of your equals.

It isn't wise to ask advice of someone who has never experienced anything remotely close to what you're going through.  By all means, share your experiences and your you learn it.  However, don't expect a song from a woodpecker when your nightingale awaits at your window.  In other words, don't ask advice of those who you know can't help you; especially when you know who the wise people are in your life.  There is nothing wrong with routinely addressing one or two individuals when you have problems or shows wisdom.

Everyone in your life has a place and a purpose.  Everyone's place and purpose is not to give advice.  Sometimes the best advice comes without ever asking it of'll be presented when you need it most.  It's beautiful to be you...even when you don't know all the answers.  Be patient, your way will be shown to you in due time.  Enjoy your day.
