Toxic positivity, toxic self-help narrative, and toxic success-grind are a thing. And we should talk more about it. I’ve read too many unfounded self-help articles. This is true outside Medium as well.

More recently, I opened 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I was curious to see why this book is on the top-seller lists for decades. I’ve had the most horrific read. The author tried to convey a Semi-Christian-privileged-experimental dogma. He used the example of taking his kid to baseball games to portray his struggle.

Not a single proof that any successful individual ever used any of the principles. Outside being unfounded, it’s downright irresponsible. And desperate people looking for help might end up in an even deeper hole.
