How to NOT give advice

There are many people in the world with problems to share who are simply not seeking solutions.

But that’s okay. It’s tempting to hear problems are instantly jump to fixes, recommendations, and new perspectives, but most of the time, it’s not needed.

Our role as friends, life partners, and business partners is not always to fix, rather to support. Every single person on the planet simply wants to be heard. Some are more accepting and even more in search of advice, but most of the time, most people just want to be understood.

Give advice when it’s asked for, be there to listen when it’s not.
