Guilt ridden

I don't know why, because usually I'd advise it, but I feel so guilty for confiding in someone very close. I am the first person to tell anyone to talk about their problems. Y'know, the old 'A problem shared, is a problem halved' situation. Well, I've decided this isn't always true.. because what if that person doesn't have a clue about how to fix it?
This has happened to me and all I've done is left them feeling helpless and really sorry that they can't do anything. Maybe worried and concerned too. Basically, instead of just one person having a problem and feeling terrible, it's now two people, which could easily have been avoided! I really am going to learn to keep my mouth shut because I feel worse now for burdening them with things they really don't need to carry around with them. 
I'm so hypocritical too, because I'd still want people to come to me with their problems. Why can't I do the same? Why do I have this huge issue with telling people things and pretending everything is ok all of the time? I always tell people that 'It's ok, not to be ok'
I really wish I could follow my own advice.
