The Buzz...Whoops, I think I may have accidentally crossed that line. How do I know? because I'm being yelled at or we're no longer speaking or things just aren't the same after my bit of advice. Sometimes when you give advice you get the look of "Who died and left you in charge?" (a phrase my 7th grade teacher Mrs. Lofton always used) and THAT is when you know that you "don donnit now" but how do you turn back or start again - fresh. Often times we think we're offering constructive criticism or advice where it might not be appreciated. I'm not talking about busy bodies or nosy folks but people who you are close to and care about. The Sting...What are the unspoken boundaries on advice you can give or should give? Do you dish it out and receive it well? Oooh even further, are there friends you give advice to and friends you let "fend" for themselves? If so, why? The Healing Process...Those closest to us are ones we care the most about and if there is an unspoken boundary or invisible line, should we even acknowledge it is there and go for it for the betterment of our loved one? Hmmm. I want to know how you approach giving advice, what you consider when giving advice (losing the relationship, getting yelled at, giving bad advice based on your own feelings). What experience have you had at giving advice where it turned out for the better or worse?
