i havethis friend who seeks advice from me almost all the time. she listens though. however, i later find out that she did it the way she wanted things to happen. then she comes back to me complaining about things. i still try to listen to her stories but at some point, i just told her to stop asking me for help because she only pretends she's listening. obviously, she got hurt. but it made me feel good telling her how i really feel. were you at one point in your life had been in the same situation?

Right now, with my sister, and my neice. I try to help and they just wallow in the mud. People do not want advice unless it confirms what they already believe. If they want help they will get up and act not just sit around and whine. You had guts, and I bet it felt good.

it felt good. but i went through a lot of frustrations first caused by my bestfriend before i could tell her frankly how i felt. and yep. it really felt good.
