Adventures on messenger....

Alright, so last night I did some......Well, lets say not so bright things last night. Especially on my various messengers. Examples:

1) I tried my best to give one of my friends who needed my attention and advice. I'm good at the first but horrible at the second. I dislike giving advice so much for the fact that I haven't had that much experience with anything yet. So....Why do people come to me for advice??? Why???

2)I seemed to have pissed off one person because I was already carrying on two other conversations and didn't have the energy(Especially last night) to carry on a third. I'm sorry if I like to give people my full attention when I'm trying to talk/give advice that's just the way I am!

3)I scared some friends while doing a Facebook note...If anyone's done the IM Facebook note where you randomly IM these certain words and then you put in a FB note what their reactions to those words are. In short I'm a dumbass because it was all taken seriously and they thought I was REALLY on drugs....Which I would never do. But they didn't know that. :/

4)I listened(or rather read on IM) as my (Straight) friends talked about The Bachelor finale and I wanted to bang my head against the wall.....That one's self explanatory :P

The rest of the night/morning on the IM was fun. Once my friends got over wanting to talk about The Bachelor we had fun just talking about the normal everyday stuff and I actually had input other than the :/ :P emoticons.

People like to come to me for advice, too...

People like to come to me for advice, too... and I'm in the same boat as you, I don't know why! I try to listen well and don't get impatient, but that doesn't necessarily translate into being able to give good advice. I need to sit and think things over before I can give advice, so in a conversation, I'm like... um...

I'm scared sometimes, that someone I really care about will need advice and come to me, and I won't be able to help them...

Argh?

I couldn't agree with you

I couldn't agree with you more on all those points!

Like, they want you to give them advice but you don't want to give bad advice or anything so your sort of stuck. I hate being in that situation because I either need to think about it for a while or I can't relate at all so I don't have any advice to give.

It's a sucky situation because I want to help but....I just can't.

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things. Some shall be pardoned, some punished. Never was a story of more regret than this of Juliet and her fair Juliet.

lol, you SOUNDED like you

lol, you SOUNDED like you were on drugs!!! i kept thinking "if i weren't worried, this'd be so funny". lol but don't feel bad about it. *hug* i think we're both just glad that you're NOT doing drugs (at least, i am), and all is forgiven. :)

people come to you for advice because you're steady. i don't know if you really are, but you give of internet vibes of being totally steady and unflappable...and asking for advice doesn't have much to do with how much experience people think you have, it's just that you're a good friend, and you take things seriously. it's a compliment. :)

It's okay. I wasn't mad or

It's okay. I wasn't mad or anything. It just seemed like you were taking everything personally but I didn't mean it that way.
