Am I qualified to give life advice?
Sure, why not? If you can pull from your experience and help someone in need, while doing your best to remain objective by removing your own emotions from the mix, it's worth a shot.
Heck, sometimes all someone needs is an unbiased ear. Most of the time, they already know the answer to their questions, and having the opportunity to express them out loud can help them resolve their issues themselves.
At least that's what I've found.
You are wise beyond your years, most of your responses are well thought out. I think you'd probably give good advice 9 times out of 10.
I am in teenage confusion hell....
No, you don't need to drink twenty beers, three will do
No, three weeks probably isnt long enough to spend dating before getting serious
No, I won't explain the mechanics behind that, I have no idea
Teenagers almost always learn the hard way. Just give your best advice, they have to decide.
Unless your a parent, then you can add in ass whupping.
I alway's start out with " I've forgotten more than you will ever know , so shut up and listen " . I stay away from the advise giving and just try to lead by example and maybe drop a hint here or there . Nobody really gives a $h!t about what I have to say anyway .
Im the kind of person that i would rather know someones opinion no matter what it is. Better to know it than know nothing. And sometimes the bad sheds light on what you are going through.
I wish i was going through the teenage confusion, and im 18. Im going through, how am i going to support myself, how many things are going to break and take my money before i get the CUCV axles ive been planning to get for 2 months now, getting through the fact im not graduating......
Client : My life sucks
RJ : make sure you point the gun in your mouth this way
RJ: I take check's,or ATM
Hahahaha, not quite
I swear though, if a few kids I knew asked me for help, one of the key ingredients would be a 'put you in your place" ass beating
When you are younger you tend to live in the NOW moment and don't really comprehend the big world thats out there . When you get (much) older you tend to live in the now but remember the past and plan for the future . When you get to be my age (40) you look in the obituaries and see all kinds of people your age and they are dead because of cancer and other stuff and you realize that more than half your life is gone . lifes to short to worry about the what if's , so I just do my best and have fun when I can and I don't spread myself to thin . A month after my 17th b-day I was in the US ARMY so I didn't have a chance to go through the teeenage confusion Having a drill seargent in your face and his boot up your @$$ will drive all of the confusion right the fk out of you . I do feel for you youngsters because the world seems to be a bit fkd up at this time .
I agree. It also helps to get other peoples point of view for perspective, even if you don't agree with them. Life experience gives everyone a slightly different take.
I thought I was the only one that did that.
