are older than you? It's just a simple question. Sometimes, (I'm 22) when I come on here, I get overwhelmed by a lot of the "stories," that the much older adults tell. You know, their problems. They are at a completely different stage in life, and I'm like, "what do I say to someone who has had kids, was married, has a career," etc. Do you think that you have to BE at the same stage of life as someone else is to effectively help them? To better understand what they're going through?
