I Wish I Had More Profound Advice to Give

    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...

    Sometimes...

    Sometimes I feel like the only type of advice I give is in the form of understanding where someone is coming from. That doesn't seem to be of much help... I wish I had some words of wisdom or inspirational things to say to people. I like to help...

    Bah

    I've always attempted to give people the best advice I can, but I always feel like my answers we...I don't see myself as being all that intelligent, so I feel like my words would just be brushed off. Kinda like "oh, it's just him".

    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...

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

    I read so many stories on here where I want to comment. But I never know how to put my thoughts and advice into writing. I'm always afraid that I'll look like an idiot. Another aspect that makes it hard to give my thoughts is my upbringing. I was essentially brought up to believe...

    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.

    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...
