Those who have failed

Those who have failed at relationships over and over again because of their own ignorance or self-sabotaging behavior have no business whatsoever in giving relationship advice.

If you want good advice on how to succeed at something, ask someone who is there or who has been there.  You wouldn't ask a morbidly obese person for their advice on weight loss.  You wouldn't ask a convict on how to be a law-abiding citizen.  You wouldn't ask someone in severe debt for tips on investments.  This should be true of relationship advice.  Friendship advice.  Honesty advice. 

And unless you have something positive to show for your status regarding these things, please don't preach to people about "shoulds" and "should-nots" about problems in relationships, particularly when you are killing every single relationship for failure of working through issues and processing each hurdle.  When you know something, then step up and give your opinion.  Until you have something to show for all your wisdom and insight on a subject you've yet to succeed at presently, don't act as though you are an authority or more insightful than anyone else.  You aren't.

Take that spotlight and point it in the mirror before opening your mouth. You might be surprised by what you find there.

This has been a public service announcement.
