The commonplace advice i see thrown around the most it’s “Just be yourself” and this is overall an AWFUL advice to give.
Because “being yourself” it’s something that should come naturally, it’s something that should not be used as a guideline on how to live life.
That’s a dangerous advice to give.
Because LIFE doesn’t really care if you’re being yourself or not, the amount of crap it’s going to throw at you remains the same.
Instead of listening to idiots who give boilerplate advice that will be harmful for you life, you should instill, instead – timeless practices into your life.
Things that are proven to WORK–that actually bring some positive changes into your life.
That’s where values, for example, come in : Family, Honor, Self-Respect & Strength -are things that will only shower you with positive stuff in life.
Because the nature of these values are positive-so it’s obvious that is exactly what they’ll give back.
But the real problem is that people nowadays lack objective, effective ways to navigate life with.
It’s all becoming SO emotional, it’s making me cringe.
And YOU probably will melt too, to the slightest hint of tension like a freaking piece of chocolate, UGH.
Society will uselessly cheer you up with positive nonsense, meant to keep you stuck in your emotions and to distract you from the FLAWS you have within yourself.
BECAUSE EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE HAPPY, WITHOUT EVEN WORKING FOR SAID HAPPINESS- PERIOD!
Emotions in life are just the icing on the cake- they’re not how reality it’s lived.
