The Road to Hell

Okay, this is a short one but I think it’s worth posting.

Believe it or not this is a response to a facebook status post. One of my college friends was telling the world at large that her life belonged to her.

If anyone that reads this has lived in a dysfunctional family then these words should ring true with you.

I’ve always felt that it is one thing to offer advice, and another to keep offering advice that people don’t take.

The first thing is being a friend and the second is being a saboteur as you soon find yourself spending more energy arguing over advice than dealing with your problem.

In this way even those who honestly believe they are helping you are getting in the way.

This would be an example of the old adage “the road to hell is paved in good intentions.”
