How do you handle when people ask you for help and it’s not clear what they want? What about when you’ve tried to help them before and it hasn’t worked?
A friend of the show is troubled by “people (usually students) who ask for help, don’t change their behavior, ask for help, etc. Repeat ad infinitum. I get so frustrated! I’ve given all the advice and help I can, but I can’t just do it for them! I try not to let the frustration show, but damn.”
