Such is the fate of all good advice.
By the time it gets to you, its usefulness will be rendered ineffective by the peculiarity of your particular problem.
Your significant other is different. Your financial condition is different. Your body is different. Your life history is different. Your parents are different. Your goals are different. Your fears are different. Your questions are different. Everything about you will always be different from the generalized nature of the advice you receive from others.
Personal growth is always personal. Just as no one can exercise for you, no one can do inner work for you. Just as no one can eat your meals for you, no one can answer your questions for you. Just as no one can go to sleep for you, no one can fulfill your dreams for you.
10% of self-help involves acquiring new information. The other 90% involves the hard work of translating information into a language that speaks to the specificity of your life situation.
All good insight is lost in translation. It’s your job to find out what it means for you.
