Will the real Councilor Please Stand Up…Please Stand Up?
You know, I’ve never understood why people come to me for advice. I mean I’m borderline fine on a good day. I am barely able to keep my own life stable, yet people come to me for advice on a daily basis. At first it was nothing but people coming to me asking for advice about their relationships. Keep in mind this all started before I even ever had a girlfriend. I will assume that in those early days my advice was good enough to keep them together because they never came back. Things got a bit more complicated on my end once I had an actual significant other because regardless of the problems I was having with them I still had to dole out advice for how to make a relationship work. Yeah, I get the irony of it all. I was able to give advice to save other relationships while my own fell to pieces.
Well the advice I’m asked for now has nothing to do with relationships. No. It involves life changing scenarios. Why do people look to me as sage advice? I’m living with my wife in my parents house. What logical sense is there to ask me how you should move forward with yer life when I haven’t even laid out my tracks? I will give advice to the best of my ability..but come on people…There’s a reason I’m not apparently on talking terms with my original group of friends. That being that I can’t put their needs above my own. I went down that road too often to the deficit of my own experiences.
