You know what’s funny? Nobody asks for my advice. However, I really LOVE to give advice. Maybe my advice sucks. I mean come on.
I’m always asking people what they think. But, you see, I’ve received terrible advice, acted on it, and have been royally screwed over.
Go with your gut, as Steven Colbert would say.
I like to fix and problem solve. Here is the catch, people don’t want you to fix or problem solve their lives. They just want to bitch about them. That’s fine. Just listen. Sympathy is so nice and comforting. If they really want advice, they’ll ask for it.
