Welcome! This is LifeAdvice. It was created late one night by someone who didn't have anyone to call, and wanted to bring together a supportive, honest and direct community to give LifeAdvice to others who are supportive, honest, and direct.
LifeAdvice aims to be both compassionate and relevant; that is, not merely platitudes ("You'll get through it!") and not just retorts ("Suck it up, asshole."). In accordance with Voat's "Don't be a dick" guidance, LifeAdvice also encourages people to remember that those on the other side of the screen are also people - people in need of advice. While swearing and namecalling won't be censored, it is encouraged that those of you with downvoats to spare use them to shut down any unhelpful angry people who may wander into this particular corner of the internet.
That being said, advice is only as good as it is useful. Aim for LifeAdvice that is practical & implementable - try to give concrete examples and steps, even if you're recommending a change of attitude. Sometimes true advice is tough - and often that's what we need to hear, so don't hold back. Just be decent.
Ask, answer, and advertise where appropriate. Thanks Voaters!
