The thing about advice is that you should only offer it when it's asked for. Some people just want to vent! :3

Well, yes. That’s true. :/ but even still, I give advice all the time and usually I can tell the difference between someone who wants my advice and someone whose just venting. Because I can’t stand it when I know how to fix a problem and they’re just complaining. Anyway, i think just text messaging makes me nervous because then I can’t see how they’re reacting to what I’m saying. :/

I always feel very weary when I give people advice over text messages

Like, what if they think I’m being obnoxious? What if they just wanted to vent? What if they think my advice is bad? What if they are offended and never talk to me again? Should I keep offering advice? Am I bad person?
