Have you ever given advice that wasn’t taken, and it is almost painful to watch the person you gave the advice to make a mistake? I know that it wasn’t personal, but it kills me to see someone make mistakes that could have been prevented. I realize that this sounds pretty high and mighty on my part. I have found that advice is a really touchy thing. Most of the time people either misinterpret it or don’t want it, or they feel offended if it is offered without asking. I wonder what the best way to offer wanted or usable advice is.

I think that the key is to leave it open-ended. A standing offer of assisstance is probably the best method.
