My friends call me about their problems it could be a boyfriend issue or whatever and they ask me for advice I give them my advice and couple a weeks later they are asking me advice on the same issue it's driving me crazy I try to listen and be a good friend but I get angry they keep making the same bad decisions over and over again I get so worked up hours later or the next day I'm still thinking about their problems and I'm pissed off because I hate for my friends to get mistreated by these no good men but they want listen. What should I do because I'm taking on their problems and it's affecting me emotionally I have tension all in my body because of this how can be a good friend without taking it so personally or should I distance myself from them??

I would try to find help for them. There are companies that specialize in helping others. I know the last two jobs I had offered means to this service. I think it is called Resource for Living. It's a number you call. I know a few people that have used this service just to talk about things that were bugging them (like your situation for yourself) and others that have called about really big concerns. (Death, suicide, depression).
Google them. I am sure you will find the number. I will try to remember when I return to work. At least they can give professional advice on how to help you and ideas with the situation with your friend.

Very tough. I would ask those friends individually to meet and talk - on your schedule- you need to share with them what you are feeling- calmly and carefully. Hopefully they can be as understanding as you are. Honey they will make their own mistakes, just support their independence to make those choices!
