It can't get worse from here!
The whole "you have to love yourself before you can expect anyone else to love you"
I brought this up with my therapist once and she got angry, calling it "pop-psychology bullshit" and then ranted for 5 minutes about how humans are social creatures that need to be appreciated as a part of a group, and having that appreciation shown in at least some aspects is usually necessary for one to appreciate themselves.
"work like you don't need the money."
If I lived by that saying, I'd be fired
"People get what they deserve."
Bullshit! Many people get away with being narcissistic assholes their entire lives without consequence.
On romantic relationships: "Don't look for anyone... you'll meet someone special when you least expect it."
No, actually there are many people who've been "least expecting" for years and they're still single, still alone, never meeting anyone special.
"Flattery will get you nowhere"
It's usually the opposite.
A million people can't be wrong.
