Precarious Proposition

Precarious Proposition
Giving folks advice is quite a precarious proposition, for if someone is only able and ready to crawl at their specific life stage, and you advice that they should be walking, you risk inflicting even more suffering upon them, and this is exactly why good therapists do not often give advice -- and when they do, will surely raise a red flag that says advice on it, and will not push the patient, if not truly ready for whatever reason(s)-- but will prod, guide you to find your own answers, which you will eventually, then, be able to tackle when ready emotionally and skill-wise.
Giving another advice that they don't quite have the life skills, courage to take on will eventually chip away more at the edges of their self-esteem.
