Whenever I write pieces pertaining to self-growth or personal development, I truly try not to dictate and dole out advice that you simply must follow. This is because I already see it – here, there and everywhere, in vast quantities.
As I pore through various articles on multiple sites that encompass the ever-present and renowned format of the list, my insides squeal and contort, just a little bit.
Ironic, right? While the style of the list attempts to arrange words in a concise fashion, I manage to feel overloaded and stressed in spite of its structured convention. There’s a certain heaviness entangled within sentiments such as: “you should do this!” and “reasons why you need to do this!” (along with lines that emulate a similar vibe, too.)
Yet, what knocks the socks off of that particular individual isn’t necessarily going to be the magical equation for everyone — hence my internal protests.
