We live in a world where we consume so much advice from people who have no business giving advice to begin with. Think about it, what made the Oprah show the phenomenon, it was and why are we still reading that book that Steve Harvey wrote and then turned into the most condescending movie of all time about love and commitment? People would rather learn about life than live through it. In part we seek advice from people who have no business giving advice to validate the decisions we’ve already formulated in our heads but are too afraid to vocalize or act out. We want someone to say it’s ok to feel the way we do we want someone to voice outrage on our behalf. It is a weird way to co-opt our lives, but even without the TV pseudo-psychologists, there are friends and relatives we cannot help but pour out our hearts and souls to.
If you are at the receiving end, hearing about people’s problems and being the sounding board for people who want your opinion, even on the most mundane things can be emotionally exhausting. You should be getting some kind of payback for this service, maybe not as Oprah or Dr.Phil but you are providing a service that might sometimes require you to muster some sense during the most awkward hours from people texting you about what they should do after meeting some great person at the club and whether they should take them home. There is a way you can earn money by giving your advice online. You may even want to direct your friends and family to your online advice site so you can get some room to breathe.
