#59 Free advice is seldom cheap.
It cost nothing to give one free advice, after all they pay the consequences for for the choice and will reap the rewards or suffer the pains. Free advice from friends is usually the safest advice, assuming you have chosen your friends well. Free advice form family can often be the most costly depending on how broken the dynamics are in your family.
Freed advice from family often gets package in the wonderful phrase you should strike from you vocabulary: "I'm telling you this for your own good." While I think we all understand what it is meant to mean - "I am trying to help you", it more often means "I'm giving you advice that will make both of us happier, but especially me." It seems to be tainted with a little potential condescension as well. People of mutual respect don't let condescension worm its ways into conversations.
Free advice - the best way to keep it from being glib, condescending or reckless is to have some skin the game with the recipient, Of course, then it is not free, is it. Happy Thursday Neighbors!

Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge.

The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
