When you really think about it, people give a lot of very bad advice. I recently read an inspirational tweet reminding readers that when faced with adversity they should remember to “just breathe.” Okay, but aren’t I going to do that anyway? I mean, I appreciate the importance of respiration when faced with a difficult situation (or any situation really), but it’s totally worthless as advice. This hero is essentially telling us that the best way to handle a particularly daunting set of circumstances is to not suffocate. Gosh, thanks. I’ll try to remember that.
