Good intentions

People have to be careful when they try to help someone. Even though they believe that they are giving someone support and trying to be their friend, sometimes it is better to leave them alone. Let the family and doctors deal with the problem.

Not everyone can be fixed when they are broken. Leave things to the professionals. One may unintentionally do more harm than good. Don't do anything that you really are not qualified to do.

    That's why it's highly advised to mind our own business when we're not sure. But then again, we don't always know now would we?

    I just think everyone thinks they are a counsellor. If someone has a real mental problem, they should go to a doctor. Friends should not be giving advice.

    Exactly, and stay outta trouble. Sometimes, the help being offered can trigger disasters.

    There's a reason why I've somehow mastered the skill needed. When a friend, especially a girl, wants to let her thoughts out, I possess the ability to listen for hours and shut the hell up. Works great, trust me...

    I think some women talk way too much. I get tired of hearing them complain about stuff. I eventually, tune out and stop listening.

    But you'll still have tolet them have the idea that you're listening right?

    I don't respond that much if it's in a group situation. They don't notice. But if it's one on one, then it's hard to pretend to pay attention.

    Actually, I have a male friend who talks way too much too. If he's really getting on my nerves, I just walk away and talk to someone else if I can. I am trying not to tell him to "shut up." We are always in a group so it's easier to tune him out.

    Things are indeed easier when you're in a group. The problem come when you face the person solo, that's gonna need a lot of patience.

    Agreed. Now I try not to get into one on one situations with people who drive me nuts.

    But sometimes, it's just so so unavoidable.

    I guess so. But I really try to avoid too much contact with people who get on my nerves. I am not patient or tolerant enough to deal with them.

    I'll just cook up some lame excuses and leave, heh......

    like what? you have to wash your hair or feed your cat or something?

    Yep, make sure it's lame enough for that fella to get the hint.
