If everyone would just learn to listen to me in the first place, we'd all be better off..
No offense if you are one of the many who have chosen not to follow my advice and have ended up in useless occupations, loveless marriages or abusive relationships, and stuck living in places you hate, believe me, I understand that having a blunt friend tell you the truth is not always something that you want to hear. I also understand that as a result I have lost many good friendships because of this. But, I wouldn't be a good friend, sister, daughter, co-worker, and girlfriend if I didn't tell you. And, to be frank, 9 times out of 10 you end up calling me years later, apologetic and telling me I was exactly right. So...
If I have told you something recently: LISTEN! I'm most likely older and wiser than you.
1. Don't take a manual labor job, you will just end up regretting it
2. Dump him, you know its better for you, stop being a stupid abused woman.
3. Don't pay two rents when you can move and secure a better future.
4. Don't smoke, it just makes you complain about your throat for a week.
