We all give each other feedback and advice.

Thanks again.
the thing about feedback and advice is one is often welcome, the other, not so much.

feedback: hey, i felt you pushing me out, is that where you want me to go?
advice: hey, i think you should push down instead of out.

feedback: would you please lighten up your grip? i bruise easily and i hate to go to work with bruises on my arms
advice: you shouldn't grip so hard because it makes your techniques less effective.

so take my advice on feedback and your life would get easier
