people come to me with their probs with is GREAT! i dont mind at all but there are some people that just keep screwing up over and over with the exact same thing and when you tell them they should maybe approach it a different way and they are all "oh yeah i will i will" then do it again and come whine about it to you time and time again doesnt it irritate you?? i have finally distanced myself from most of those people just because they were seriously exhausting but i dont want to not be there for my friends but i really dont want them continuing to mess up their lives either ya know?? is there a point to even giving advice on certain subject even though they wont take it even though they asked for it?? its not like i can agree for them to make their mistakes when i know they will just get hurt.. i know some people have to learn the hard way but i still feel responcible in some way for not helping correctly.. eventhough i know that isnt possible in most cases..

I usually don't get annoyed. In fact I'm one person people will have trouble annoying but sometimes if someone does things repetitively day by day I get seriously annoyed by people who annoy me. There is a guy at school who gets me angry. He constantly comes to me just to annoy me. Even if I tell him to go away, he doesn't get the message. I don't really know what I can do with this kind of people. Sometimes I wish I would never see that person again. It's not like you can tell somebody... apart from telling your friends what a jerk that guy is. I think some people just love ruining other people's lives and lives with it.

Well, I believe that some people are just programmed to act so inane in judgment. I don't want to call anyone stupid because I'm sure that some people have said the same about me. I do find it annoying when someone keeps failing to see the mistakes that they keep making. The best thing you can do is give your advice. If they really cared they wouldn't be too upset with you helping them.

you can only suggest...it is up to them whether to take your advice or not...it is their life...if they want to mess up their life, then that is their problem...at least you tried to help them. everyone makes their own path in life. they choose their own path and make their own decision...maybe their plan and goal in life is to be a mess to teach other people not to be like them...to be an example for others in society of what not to do...

I don't get mad with innocent or naturally stupid people, after all it;s not their fault. It's the intentionally stupid people who pi$$es me off!!! I found that there are people who, in some areas are smart as a whip, yet in other circumstances they truly are dumber than a bag of hammers!!!!

yes, time and time again there are friends or person who sometimes are stubborn when it comes to problems.. it seems like they just want some attention craving for suggestions but are not going to make a difference about it. sometimes this kind of people just needs someone to cry on or someone who will just hear what they want to say. sometimes they really don't need what you have to say but they just want someone who will be there to hear their problems. a good listener, that is. anyway, one way or another as long as they are still okay with their lives then just be there to listen eventhough sometimes we or you are or is irritated already with their constant problems which is always the same. we all have friends like that and sometimes we might not notice it but we sometimes just are the same with them. good luck to being one of the best friend they have.

...Yeah as the only way for themselves to heal is to want it! I'm a kind of sensitive person and I can't stand people irritating me with their problems again and again.I try however to advice people who confess with me but I'll just do it once,then maybe I try to find other ways. Sometimes,words just ain't enough,so I think to express through arts for examples is maybe better.

I used to get irritated by stupid people but I learned to tolerate them even if sometimes they are a pain in the neck.

I have learned a statement that came from somewhere and I say it a lot, " Some people's Children" that is all I say when I come across people who just over whelms me or I am totally blown away what they might be doing or saying, I guess, in their own ways, that is how they look or deal with their life. But, I try. Some days are worse than others, I guess, many have to tolerate me, so, it is even, maybe.. not sure but, thanks for the thread, makes me think.

well ,i also used to get troubles like that, but u must understand having intelligence is a god's gift, which others wont get, so we must have utmost tolerance when dealing with those people, if they wont have the real will to understand say to them i wont help u next time until if you are sincere in understanding the topic. that will do the thing for u

My high school best friend always comes up to me to share everything about her family problems and boyfriend problems. I can only say this much about her family problems and just mostly listen cos there's really nothing we can do about it. But her boyfriend problems, really ticks me off every time. The first few times were bearable. I was supposed to be her best friend so I was there for her listening and giving her advices. We are of the same age but she seems to be a little behind when it comes to decision making. Her problem was always the SAME darn thing every time she would text me. It really annoyed me that I started telling her that I've been listening about the SAME EXACT problem she'd been ranting about for almost every day for months and I asked her what does she want me to do cos I've been telling her what to do about it but that she's ignoring it. I honestly told her that I'm starting to get sick of it. Even her boyfriend was sending me messages on what to do. I mean, what the hell, can't they just talk? They've been together for a year and their relationship is really becoming immature. I distanced myself from them for some time. I didn't return any of their messages until this year. I agree with you that this kind of people is exhausting. They really are. They know what to do but they don't want to do it and yet they're ranting about it every day. What do the want us to do? So now, there's this distance between us although we now talk to each other, she's not sharing anything about her love life anymore, whether she and that guy of hers from high school are still together and I don't bother to ask.

moonlitmagikchild_ Try these replies for stupid people "Yes, I remember you telling me that last week, did you get it resolved yet?" "I'm sure you know what's best for your situation." "Oh, are you still dealing with that? I'm sorry." Then change the subject! You can't fix the world. Take care of yourself. Stupid people are not asking for help. They're looking for someone to dump their problems on. I had a friend like that, but after a few months, I stopped communicating with her. I realised she was using me.

Yeah, I know few peoples like that. Nothing irritates me more than human's stupidity. I just can't stand it. I can give a tip or two but this kind of person is just hopeless. They can't do anything in the proper way and if you will push them too hard they will become your enemy and they will start to blame you for their mistakes!

If someone asks for your advice and doesn't take it there is nothing to feel guilty about. That would be like a DR. giving a patient medication for hypertension the patient not taking the med then having a stroke and the Dr. feeling guilty about it. Well the Dr. did all he could and it was the patient choice not to follow instructions. Your friends have to make their own choice (stupid or not). If they are making the same decision over and over again with the same results then believe it or not (and they may not realize this themselves) there is a reason they are making it, that reason may be as simple as someone (or themselves) convincing them that it will have a different outcome this time (see that in battered wife syndrome). If you really don't want to listen to them whine then just tell them you had rather not hear it all again and move on to a different subject.-- And yes there are times when i do get seriously annoyed by people doing stupid things and this is especially true if i am the one doing it!LOL

They say that the definition of insanity is to keep trying the same thing and getting different results. If they dont take your advice, you can be responsible for the outcome. I know you want to help, but you can only do so much. The next time they ask, just tell them that they know what to do. There are a lot of stupid people in this world. They havent come up with a cure for this particular disease yet. At some point you have to stop trying to help them until they decide to help themselves. Hugs, Tianna

To meet and listen their problem is your job then you should not react like that, if someone does mistake because you failed to make him understand better, it is not supposed to be your mistake and you should feel responsible for that. Even though you tried to save him from getting hurt I hope you got my point.
