I can only relate so much to this.

I feel like most advice I've ever received in my life isn't a genuine attempt to help, but just a reflection of people's egos. Throughout the years, I've learned not to give unsolicited advice simply because I don't want to be treated the same. Isn't it nice sometimes just to be heard, without being judged?

However, thanks to my prefix ego, I'm also aware of the fact that I sometimes (unconsciously) do that too to the people I care about. And even if it's really hard, I try, try, and keep trying...
