“As people, we’re really good at the running forward part. With a clear stretch, we can soar ahead for miles. But we hate – we’re literally fearful – of backtracking.
To go back suggests we’ve failed, that our judgement was flawed, that our time was wasted. And the painful thing is – that’s usually true. But it doesn’t matter. The maze just is. You can back up and get on with it, or you can stay stuck in the wrong place.” Life is a maze, not a marathon – Oliver Emberton

“The problem however, is that “just be yourself” is inherently bad advice. Being authentic is one thing – that’s something we all should be doing. But “just be yourself” is about not changing, period. And sometimes, quite frankly, being yourself is the problem. It doesn’t do you any good to “just be yourself” if you suck. Being told to be yourself means refusing to change, even when your current self is what’s holding you back. I’ve lost track of how many people I’ve known whose “bad luck” with women boiled down to something about themselves – something that was well within their abililty to fix.When I’d point out their issue: a shitty attitude towards women, an unrealistic expectation of relationships or just plain being a selfish asshole – they’d come back with “well, women should love me for who I am. I’m not going to change just to please people.” Then with their very next breath they’re back to wondering why women don’t like them.
Sometimes you are the common denominator in your dating problems. Your identity – your sense of self – shouldn’t change whenever the winds blow and become whatever fashion tells you it should be. But at the same time, refusing to change because you should “just be yourself” becomes a way of excusing yourself from taking any responsibility for your personal growth and the need to improve.” 5 Types of Dating Advice People Need to Stop Giving – Dr NerdLove
