    You just have something to say about everything dont you? The thing about unsolicited advice is its dangerous and usually unwanted. You can not read one little letter and then dish out paragraph after paragraph of snooze material.

    Say it simply or simply shut the hell up.

    Be more like that lunatic “sweetness” short, sweet and full of xxxxxxxx.

      Not necessarily with the delivery, but the sentiment. I don’t want to make this a group attack on one person as it annoys me when ANYONE dishes out lengthy advice or overused quotes on one of my letters.

      And giving life advice to a person on here in response to letters is like reading only 1 sentence of CliffsNotes on “War and Peace,” without having read the book, and then writing a dissertation on the novel. Annoyingly bad.

      I can try. Some just want to be heard, and I can be shorter. Some want to be understood & known, that takes longer. And some are just being private in public and don’t want any reply. I’m sure I get them mixed up.

      Until I get it more right, my posts are helpfully labeled ‘peter c’ so they are easy for you to just skip over & ignore…

      I don’t understand the need to call people out on here, unless it’s bullying, or threatening and abusive behaviour.
      I don’t understand why we can’t just scroll past and ignore what we don’t like? Not hard…
      Peter C is one of the nicest, gentlest commenters I’ve seen on this site in years. I appreciate reading his sentiments

      Person 1: Oh man, this has been such a horrible experience. I really just want to kill someone. I bought a used car yesterday from that dealership down the street, you know that place? They have good reviews online and my brother got a good deal there last year. I researched the car model and all of that. Well, the car was working fine at the dealership and on the test-drive, but I brought it home, and it died that same evening when I tried to start it. The salesperson wouldn’t let me return it even though they claimed there was a 30-day all-inclusive-no-questions-asked-money-back guarantee, and today I find out that they declared bankruptcy and closed shop, so it’s unlikely that I will ever be getting my money back. Unbelievable. I’m debating whether to take this to small claims court to try anyway, or just take the loss, man this sucks, I’m out $4000 dollars…

      Person 2: You know, anger is a manifestation of things within ourselves, and to kill is to destroy the very things which make us human, perhaps. Did you know that ““It’s harder to heal than it is to kill.”? Also, “you get what you pay for”…. not saying that applies here, but it is something to consider, as you seek out used cars rather than new cars because maybe something in yourself has been used and broken, and so you find cars that are used and broken, as the law of attraction goes. Not saying that it applies, but just things to consider.

      Person 1: Thanks, thanks a lot. Bye now.

      Person 2: But wait! Did you know that “You have to come to your closed doors before you get to your open doors?” and “the only disability in life is a bad attitude!” “Don’t let your happiness depend on something you may lose!”

      Person 1: …………………

      Let him have his say. Everyone else here is afforded the same privilege. There are many other comments on letters that give advice without knowing the full story. It is up to the author to determine which is applicable. Or, as mentioned here previously, it is up to them if they would want to read it in the first place.

      Unless you part of the admin, I don’t think you are in a position to dictate what can and can’t be said here.

      OK it’s super indulgent for me to respond on a Peter C note *again*, last time, but…

      SJ – thank you, that’s truly sweet.

      M & Unnecessary – really appreciated!

      ‘Nice & Gentle’ – ha, you made me laugh out loud. Not sure I was supposed to, but it’s a really good poke and a fair reminder –

      Thanks for defending me ( as the author of the Sweetness letters ) .

      That’s sarcasm , for your humourless selves .

      (This has nothing to do with this letter but…)

      I think you’re really funny, Bundle…

      But I’m not sure if you want me replying to you or your posts anymore…

      I love the Sweetness letters…I hate your other letters though…

      I wish you the best, really..

      And sorry, Bundle, I think I kind-of owe you an apology for some of the things I wrote on this site in the past few months.


      I’ll leave you alone…

      Sorry, didn’t realise you were needing defence. Nothing wrong with your letters. Ignore the author.

      Intentions are not what they seem are they Peter for you always answer to a certain author. Now who may that be?

      Hi – since you pose a direct question I thought I should give a direct answer. I don’t really answer any particular letters – others here seem better than me at figuring out who is who. I just reply to notes that make me sad, or angry about an injustice, or torn because of a difficult situation. And especially if it is something that I’ve had to confront myself and may have learned something that could be useful.

      I’m just another guy, though if it’s useful, I did do eighteen years of telephone counseling, so I’ve heard about a lot of sadnesses…


    14. Peter loves to give advices
      January 20, 2016 at 11:20 pm

      No I think the Peter C gives unsolicited advises on many posts. Sometimes very lengthy ones. I don’t think he replies to one particular author. He loves to comment and comment on comments, till he is done and calls it a day. Although sometimes unnecessary I like reading , take it if it sounds good or bin it.
