cactushugs43 Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 I can only blame myself for getting useless advice from people who have no idea what it is like to go through the things I am going through, but what really grinds my gears is when people give me useless advice that they absolutely would NEVER give to anyone that really mattered to them, or take themselves if they were in what they imagine my position to be. I don't want to go into details of my own situation, but I am talking about things comparable to confiding in someone you think of as a friend about financial difficulties only to be told, with total earnestness on the friend's part, that you should really just go whore yourself out on a street corner, because hey, if you REALLY needed money you'd do whatever it takes....and I am supposed to receive this with a straight face and take it to heart and turn my life around thanks to this brilliant insight, or else I'm just a lazy slob who has no room to complain. Does anyone else have people like this in their life? How do you handle them? I want to say "are you fucking KIDDING me?" but I know their intentions are good...I'm just evidently not supposed to hold onto any shred of personal dignity if I'm having problems. It's really hard for me not to get pissed off at that. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
