I Wish I Had More Profound Advice to Give

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 183 People

    But I Don't

    I'm not a fortune cookie. I can only say what I think about a matter, or I can just keep quiet and leave you to find your own musings. I don't mind sitting quietly with someone while they work out whatever it is they need to. Or leaving them alone, as they will. There are times...

    Same Old Same Old

    I never feel experienced enough or old enough to give proper useful advice that someone would actually appreciate. Everyone on here seems so much more smarter than I am and more worldly experienced than me that I normally just leave it up to them. I'm also worried about giving...

    I Wish I Knew What to Say.....

    Do I Ever!

    I wish I had more to say... I wish I was in your situation, knew first hand... Was able to intuitively figure out what needed to be done... Because I've already given you the best advice I know how to. I've already told you what I would do, in your situation... I've already told...

    I Try

    I do the best I can, but I know it isn't enough. Whenever I see anyone wanting or needing advice or any kind of help, I want to do something. I see someone depressed, I want to cheer them up, even though it's likely I won't be able to do a thing. I want to take the world upon my...

    Any Questions?

    Do this, do that, do something else.  I can't sort my own life out, but maybe at least I can help screw up other people's.
