Just Listen to Me – It’s Not About the Nail

My problems might seem really obvious to someone else, but I don’t necessarily want to be told how to fix them. I might just want someone to listen to me – show me that they care about me. If I want advice, I’ll ask for it.

Now, I just need to follow my own advice.
