Top 15 Tips That Are Actually Toxic, Please Don’t Listen To Them

Advice is supposed to help, guide, make life better. The small problem is that some of the advice that has been given to us for centuries is more toxic than it looks. A bit as if they wanted to ruin our lives under the guise of good intentions. I’ll tell you frankly what I think: it’s not cool.

1. “Trust your feelings”

It would be known if what we felt was always good for us. When we have hatred because someone finished the Chocapic before us, fortunately we listen to our reason a little too, otherwise we would all be there killing each other instead of living in harmony.

2. “Only God can judge you”

Well no, everyone judges everyone, and especially a category of the population: judges (like those whose job it is). They can really judge you if you screw up, and that’s fine.

3. “Don’t listen to others”

When others are dumb, advice may be wise, but sometimes others just want to help us grow. So never listening to others is a bit lame. It’s even super dangerous when you’re in a car.

4. “Think about your career before anything else”

Having a good job is great. Thinking only about work and sacrificing everything else to realize at 40 brooms that you missed what was most important in life, it’s less nice. Compromises are always more reasonable. But if you want to look like the big LinkedIn jerks who swear by work, that’s your problem.

5. “Friends before girls”

The famous “bros before hoes” is the second dumbest invention of humanity (after the unicycle). How to build a stable and happy romantic relationship with someone who always puts his friends before everything else? This behavior is completely unhealthy.

6. “Always be positive”

No, we have the right to be sad, it even feels good to be sad. While forcing yourself to be positive in all circumstances, it’s a blow to hide all your problems under the rug to, one fine day, explode like a pressure cooker. BOOM.

7. “If you don’t love yourself, how can you love anyone?”

It’s all very well to advise someone to love themselves, but to make them believe that they won’t love anyone until they love themselves is the best thing to do for them. sorry for not loving each other, and… do you see the vicious circle coming? Better throw a good one “There are too many people who love you but you don’t see it” like Helene Segara. It’s good there.

8. “If you don’t do it now, you never will”

From time to time it is necessary to kick yourself in the ass. At other times, you can just take your time and put it off and enjoy life. And riding a unicycle (yes I changed my mind, I like it now.)

9. “One lost, 10 found”

A breakup is like a bereavement, it can take time, so let’s give people time instead of talking to them about probably shitty future conquests. Instead, listen to scientific advice on how to recover from a breakup (although some also seem very, very lame.)

10. “When we want, we can”

Sometimes we want to, but we can’t. And when someone tells us that “when we want, we can”, we feel even more useless. That’s really bad advice. I’m sure the guy who invented it had super rich parents and never had a problem finding work.

11. “The heart has its reasons that reason ignores”

which can be translated as “You can do shit for love if you want, you’ll never need to justify yourself”. Except that, when you live with people, you don’t do everything you want. It sucks but that’s how it is.

12. “You have to suffer to be beautiful”

One: you don’t “need” to be handsome or beautiful.

Two: there are plenty of beautiful people who don’t even suffer (lucky bunch).

Three: there are plenty of people who suffer and who don’t become beautiful (unlucky bunch).

13. “Laughing woman, half in your bed”

While the reality is rather: “Woman who laughs, laughs. And if she wants to, maybe eventually she’ll go to your bed. » No need to encourage pushers who will believe they can catch every girl who laughs at one of their jokes.

14. “Behave like a man”

What does that mean anyway? Never cry and carry heavy stuff? Even Dwayne Johnson he cries sometimes, so frankly let’s stop with this toxic masculinity that stinks of uc.

15. “Work is health”

It’s an expression invented by the bosses. Everyone knows that work is bad for your health, otherwise why would we have invented something called “occupational medicine”? HEY, WHY?
