Defined by the dictionary as guidance or recommendations given to someone concerning prudent future actions usually given by someone who is knowledgeable on the subject.
What it really is…
The art of giving someone your opinion….but calling it something nicer to avoid getting punched in the face.
We have all given and received our share of good and bad advice. Its a way of getting a different point of view in order to solve an issue.
For years,we have been giving people advice. Most of it has been based on our own life successes, failures, and life traps. Most of our advice is filled with clouded judgement based on our fears and or our inadequacies. As a future psychiatrist, I am learning how to give the best, and most unbiased advice I can. The goal is to help patients direct their lives in better directions, and or break patterns.
That’s why this column started. The TheDoctorsCouch team is testing out this section as we embark on the adventure of something we are calling worldwide/interactive-advice on the blogosphere. How this works is, you the reader can write to us at think@TheDoctorsCouch.org and we will write a post in reply concerning your life dilemma. Keeping your anonymity in order to best engage with you, the public can then best decide if my advice is feasible, offer extra advice, and or encourage you to discard my advice.
We are all in this together, and this is only the beta stage of this project as we are trying new things.
I hope you can enjoy this as much as I am enjoying living it.
