Commenting because this is well-written and totally not bitchy.
I so agree.
But I guess in the “self-help” industry, there’ll always be polarizing views when articles that aim to help people are put up, to the point that a lot of it is cliched.
What irks me is when the writer gets all preachy and starts to disrespect others’ way of life. Some even lie. Add in the factor of wanting to sell something for money, it gets even messier.
I know because I’ve been there. The average person would have no idea the kind of bullshit a business person, however much of a good person he or she seems to be does to make the sale.
I personally believe we’re all capable of solving our own shit. A little guidance would be great, but that doesn’t mean you need to start to worship self-helpers.
