Recently I received a message from a poster that unfortunately thought my (yes, smart a$$) post was directed at them. It wasn't.
So after a couple of messages back and forth, I realized that our stories are not all that different. And that got me thinking about why I get upset with some of the responses I see or receive.
There is a very big difference between advice and opinion!! I did some actual research! Pardon my paraphrasing!!
Advice is given based on first hand knowledge. Things we've experienced.
Opinion is based on how we feel. Not necessarily what we know.
I think this is the cause of a lot of irritation!!
So in the future, I will specify if I am asking for advice or if I am asking for opinions!
Regardless of whether we're here for advice or opinion, we're all here because we need support!!
We all have a common thread!!😊
