This is why I avoid the self-help, self improvement culture. It’s design so that people who don’t even know me or my life grant advice based off a generalization and only adds to people feeling poorly about themselves or questioning themselves while the indirect concept is to have them fall suit to the standards of others.
I don’t believe there is only two groups, the best or enough. There’s also people like myself who live by my own standard, my own value of always doing what I believe is the right thing. I don’t need anyone other than myself to feel good about me. Would I like others to? Sure, but it’s not a necessity for survival.
If I want to find happiness I look to myself to find it. Not mainstream self-help bullshit most usually written by someone half my age. I will say this, it does fascinate me that people eat that shit up as if they’re incapable of thinking for themselves, need a quick fix which is more like a quick avoidance as if it never happened or they thrive off the pleasure of following someone they feel is a leader opposed to bucking up and being leaders themselves. Perhaps these people lack self confidence? Maybe that’s another article you could write.
Thanks for the insightful piece.
