I have a close friend who I've been somewhat avoiding ever since she got pregnant (baby is now 2+ months). They had a slightly longer journey to get there, but not long considering what many of us are going through.

The problem with this friend is that she likes to give advice on anything and everything, regardless of how much experience she has, or how much the receiver needs/wants it. Now its all parenting, all the time.

I love her dearly (and feel bad about this), but I just can't listen to it. And I feel like I can't turn it off without her knowing what we're going through (which would just start different "advice")

Do you avoid any well-meaning friends to save your feelings?
