realization

no one ever really wants advice. they just want validation for what they were going to do anyway. no matter how much they complain, or how much their choices aren't working, they won't change until they want to. and it sounds brutal, but offering help that eases their situation often prevents them from getting to the point of wanting to make better choices, so except for dire emergencies, i'm not going to do it anymore.
