Free Advice You Didn't Ask For is a podcast on life lessons and things that are good for you, because they were either good for me or someone I know or heard about. You didn't ask for them, you don't have to take them, and you might not even like them, but I'm going to continue to give them either way ("hopefully"). Hi, I'm Toby.

    EP7: Friends, Good

    EP7: Friends, Good

    I realize that I am an introvert, and as one I find it easy to operate in isolation, but I'm coming to realize that by doing that I am depriving myself of the greatest resource known to man - other people. I might sound a tad bit romantic, but I really think we, well I, need to put in more effort into making connections and appreciating those connections. Help me out, you can remind me I said this in a few years.

    EP5: The End Credit Syndrome

    EP5: The End Credit Syndrome

    EP4: On Relationships

    EP4: On Relationships

    Here's the thing about relationships that I've noticed. In all kinds of relationships, a lot of the times the individual is neglected. I think if people remember that relationships comprise of individuals with their own unique life experiences, a lot of issues would be solved. I really think that that should be the starting point of every relationship.
