  • Maybe she doesn't want you to make the same mistakes that she made. What kind of advice is she giving you? Take what you like and what you don't, throw it out. If you disagree, then politely say "I disagree"

  • I don't hang out with women that don't raise their own children, or are druggies, or whose kids are in rehab.. Sorry but I'm kinda picky about who my family and I hang out with...

  • I probally wouldn't talk to her.'She sounds kinda like she's got a negative vibe about her.I wouldn't want it to rub off on me.*Or if your a VERY strong force try to lead her into a more positive way to live without all the dramatic negative behaviors that lead only to more pain.If she's willing to care & be happy.'*~*& want a nice life~

  • If it was someone I had to be around every day I might tell them I disagree but if it were someone who I seldom saw I would probably just be like ok ok to be polite but not really care.

  • well this is sort of a "what if question" I do know someone who is a druggie and doesnt take care of her kids who always tries to tell me how to take care of my kids ! ( BILs ex) .... I was just wondering if anyone would actually do it....

  • Tell them you don't need their advice since they didn't make the right decisions either! They are trying to make up for mistakes they have made and they still don't have all the answers you need. Why go on lying to them?
