M called me and said she needed to talk about N. We sat down and had a long conversation. The more I talk to people, the more three things become obvious to me. One, is that, regardless of how attractive, smart and awesome you are, one always has relationship issues. Everybody seems perfect, till you peek at their emotional side. There are always worms in that can. Always. Even mine.
Two, is that sometimes all people need is someone to talk to. At least most of the people I talk to are awesome and know exactly what to do. They don’t want anyone to tell them what to do. All they want is someone who’ll listen to their stories. The only problem is that not anyone will do. Me. I have very low standards. I’d talk to a dog if the bark came to bite.
Ironically, M did ask me what I she should do. I told her that I couldn’t tell her what to do, but from my experience, if you have to ask a third person for relationship advice, that’s probably not a good sign.
And third.. what’s the third one there. I forget. Oops.
