Blog away!

Friday, May 25, 2012

Today I was reading a blog like I do every day and I started to leave a comment, as I was writing I realized I was giving this person advice that maybe they did not want. So I stopped writing and just acknowledged the blog as being part of where she wants or needs to be.

So today I realized that I try to help people who may not really want or need my help !!
They may just want to vent,so I want to apologize ,if I offered any unwanted advice. It's my way of lending a hand or being kind , but not always wanted or necessary!
So to all you bloggers keep on blogging and I hope I learn at least one thing from your journey to help me get through mine!

Thanks for the blogs that help me get through the day!

    I can relate! I believe we all need to stop and think, before we speak, or write. Have a great holiday weekend!

    Good thoughts!
Somewhere I read women often only want to vent their feelings after a bad day, and marital conflict is generated when husbands want to help and give advice instead of listening.
I often catch myself doing what you just described ; )
Few people want to be told what to do, but most of us like to share thoughts, feelings, ideas, different solutions, and everybody likes understanding, kindness and encouragement.

It can be a tough balance, but I think as long as we offer ideas and advice in a way that doesn't expect the blogger to take it or criticize them for not having already done so, there's a benefit. I've learned some great ideas and information from the responses to other's blogs and even my own, even when it wasn't asked for.
