I remember hearing, years ago, that most advice columnists end up with crazy personal problems because they can only give out advice to others - not to themselves.
Turns out it's true. Take my column away from me, I can't even tell myself what to do.
I am a fraud.
I guess it's so much easier to be objective when it's someone else who needs the help. Personal problems are just that - personal. Too personal, probably. You just can't step back and look at it the right way because your thoughts and feelings are far too involved.
So here I am, writing on my damn blog because I can't deal. I'm torn up and terrified. And I can't even seem to figure out what I'm supposed to do about it. How do you change what you hate, and how do you live with feeling like things are hidden from you?
Holy annoying post, Batman.
Where the shit is my Dear Abby? I think we need a chat.
