On the Safe Side
Giving someone advice is a double-edged sword. Yes, we all want to be helpful and lend an ear when someone needs it but it’s also scary. On one hand, you could literally be changing their life but on the other, what if they follow what you say and end up in a deeper mess?
No one wants that kind of responsibility, which is why you end your talk with “but idk tho.” Essentially, that puts the ball in their court so they can never blame you if something does go wrong. If you ask us, that’s always the smart thing to do.
