So you always give advice to your friends etc, but if you were in that situation how often would you actually take your own advice? From an objective point of view, I can see exactly what I think someone should do, but when it comes to my own personal life, I always choose the wrong option or doing nothing.
So would you actually follow the advice you would hypothetically give to the situation you are in, if the person asking wasn't you?

What's the phrases?
"Easier said then done."
"Do you talk the talk? Or walk the walk?"
Giving advice is easy. Going through with it is many many times harder, depending on the circumstances.
Good question, a great example of hypocrisy frequently occurring around us!2
