ok i am twenty years old now and i know that i have bills and all of that and i am growing up and still have some to accomplish but i am growing up...and i am making responsible decisions and making sure that people are taken care of and i am being faithful to my girlfriend and trying to live right and not "go crooked" down the wrong road...and now people around me are trying to tell me where i am going wrong and what i can do better and all of that and im like im grown and living right so let me make my own choices and worrying about my stuff for me...has this ever happened to you and does it annoy you when others try and get in your business because they think they can run it better than you? i would like to thank you for taking the time out of your day to come by and read and review my discussion and hopefully answer, i hope that you all have had a great day so far and that you have a great and safe evening today, thanks again for taking the time to come by...

Hello jhl930 I think people are trying to advise through their own experiences rather tell you how to lead your own life. I guess they are trying to save you, time, money and effort possibley. But yes it is annoying when people do this and it can be seen as them interfering with your life and affairs which have nothing to do with them!

I think that everyone has felt this way about friends or family older then you that seemingly appear to just be worried about how you are doing with expenses and etc, but to you feel as if they are trying to run your life. I think that the best thing you can do is just to tell them that you appreciate the advice but until you do a moral injustice or something reprehensible you would like to be left alone and to be able to come to them when you do need advice. Ofcourse, under my breath or in my mind I would say "unless you annoy me any further and I only acknowledge and call you, but never let you know what's going on in my life." If you are just getting out of your parents house, then well, get used to it, it will wear off a eventually and they won't worry so much, or won't tell you they worry so much anyway.

Hi there! Well I'm the kind of person whose open for suggestions from others especially from my family and friends. I don't find it annoying at all. I accept their suggestions. Look into it and see which would be better for me. But still I will make my own decisions. I'm sure those persons you find annoying just wants to give you suggestions. You might just have misinterpreted them by thinking that they are intruding your personal life. Why don't you open yourself to suggestions. You can just listen to whatever they are suggesting just to avoid misunderstandings and so you won't be annoyed but you are not obliged to follow them. You still will make your decisions. Good luck!
