Dear Sherpa Dave,
Please give me your best bad advice.
Sit on an answer and don't work on it for 2000 hours.
Keep it real,
Do what your heart tells you.
-Uffish Thought, who accidentally jumped in on someone else's question. Oops. My heart told me to do it.
Dear Rainbow ~
Always jump in on other people's conversations and give advice where it wasn't solicited.

"Don't go to bed angry."
No. Go to bed. The likelihood you'll prolong an argument and end up making things worse is far greater than you resolving everything amicably. Sleep and talk again tomorrow.
"Live every day like it's your last."
No. Plan for tomorrow. Fill your days with good, fun and productive things that will also help you thrive and do fun things in the future too.
"Dance like nobody's watching."
No. You're going to hit somebody. Dance like you're excited for everyone to come and have a great time dancing with you.
"A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
No. You shouldn't handle animals because it's traumatic and could injure them. It's worth it to have three birds in the bush.

Keep talking to your ex. Keep hoping that maybe things will change and you can work it out. Keep giving him chances.
