You have a problem and want to talk about it with another person. All that you want from the other person is for them to listen to you. However, they keep giving you advice and try to help you to solve your problem. You get more frustrated and don’t listen to what they are telling you to do. This person becomes angry with you because you are not going to follow their advice. What do you do? PF-New City, N.Y.

This is a really common situation to many people of all ages. Before beginning to tell this other person about the problem you are having, tell them straight out that all you want from this person is for them to listen to you. It is what you need and want at this point. This is something teens related to me as a high school guidance counselor remarking, “All I want is my mother to listen to me. I don’t want her advice.”

Another way to handle this situation is to cut the other person off when they are trying to give you advice or criticize you, and tell them that all you want from them is to get what’s bothering you off your chest.

The same is true when someone comes to you with their problem. When they come to you, ask them whether they want your opinion or advice, or just want you to listen to what they have to say.

Letting people know directly what you want from them is a great way of being able to really feel comfortable talking to others and having them feel easy about talking with you. It also prevents misunderstanding and allows you both to speak freely without receiving unwanted advice or criticism.
