People often turn to the internet for psychological help, but it’s not always possible to find beneficial instructions. Some of them may sound motivating, but most of the times, they have a destructive effect. Of course, each situation can be viewed from different perspectives, but it is better to know which tips you should avoid and why.
Bad web advice
№1 – Always be yourself
At first glance, it sounds right indeed, but it only works in a case when you already feel a complete person who has achieved a lot and is completely satisfied with life. If this isn’t the case, perhaps the problem may be in the refusal to change. Think it over!
№2 – Always give 100%

If you have a very important day at work, when you need to show yourself in the best way, you can give even 200%, but if it is a typical working day and you breaking a sweat regularly, you should probably stop and remember that you also need rest. This applies to household chores as well!
№3 – Always say what you think
Well, this advice doesn’t even seem positive. You need to think carefully over each word because you can easily offend a person without even noticing it. Be tolerant, respect others' boundaries, and others will respect yours as well.
№4 – Stop working to allow your husband to fulfill his dreams

You don’t live in the Middle Ages – there is no need to sacrifice your life to allow your partner to achieve his dreams. Equality rules the modern world. If you and your partner have reached it, this is your key to success. If one of you has to sacrifice something, there may be reproaches and quarrels ahead.
№5 – Always think positive

Of course, this is better than negative thinking, but it is even better to perceive things rationally. If an unfortunate event has happened in life, you'll need to just find the strength to resolve issues to turn this page, because you can’t always make things positive.
№6 – Get out of your comfort zone
This advice can be very destructive if taken out of context. People get the most inspired and motivated only if they are comfortable. Otherwise, they will try to prove something, to cope with the tasks, but will still feel the pain inside and suffer.
As you can see, these tips can hardly help anybody in life. Analyze your existence and find your ideal path to go along till self-fulfillment.
