The truth about self-help (and generally taking in advice)

Here’s a quick post today before I head to the airport.

I think we all have it mixed up when it comes to self-help and even receiving help in general.

I’m talking in terms of listening to your friends, taking advice from people you look up to and even having to think about what your mom told you.

They may all be founded by good intentions and wanting to help you, but here’s the thing: You can’t take them all in.

Not everything is good for you. Not everything can work for you, and not everything applies to you.

How do you truly use self-help or receive help from others?

You take what you need, and reject everything else. 

It may sound counter-intuitive, but you need to be strong and believe in yourself. Even if something is supposedly good for you, you throw it away.

Too much of something, even if it’s good, is not good.

What works for others, doesn’t work for you.

So believe in yourself. Check your gut. And flow with it.

The decisions you often make by yourself are usually the best.

Remember, reject everything else!

Do you want more honest-as-fuck stories like this?
