Advice seems to be particularly easy for people to give online. I'm not sure what it is about this space that makes it easier for someone to blurt out a whole lot of recommendations that someone else should take up.
It's really quite arrogant when you think about it.
What seems to open the floodgates the most is if you implicate even a whiff of a negative emotion you're experiencing. Then some people seem incapable of not rushing in like a tsunami to offer you ways of removing yourself from its clutches.
I find that 90% of the advice that I am given is stuff that I already know and practice.
Ergo, 90% of advice that we think we should give ... maybe we just shouldn't. Especially if someone hasn't actually asked for it.
