Sometimes I'll respond to someone's thread or to a journal entry or comment, to try and lend support and advice, and then after submitting it sit back and think, "What the hell!" Why? Because it seems so strange and a little bit off to me that on the one hand, I try to push people to survive and stay strong and get help, and on the other hand, I can't push myself to follow my own advice. So often when I give advice, I feel a bit fake, because why shell out all these words when I can't even follow my own advice? Doesn't that make me a hypocrite? And if so, should I even be at DS? Everything I tell people is COMPLETELY sincere and heartfelt and serious. All my advice is sincere and I truly want to help others. But I can't even get myself to follow that help and advice. That seems a bit messed up to me.
