Advice - Is it Better to Give than to Receive? - Advice - Is it Better to Give than to Receive.

A perfect example of a forced piece of advice, is article A that we read about contractions. To me, this article didn't advise the reader about what not to do, but it told them.

It has to be from the heart, not just said for the sake of being said. Generally, good advice has to come from experience.
