This episode is a bit of a rant— I am so frustrated seeing folks on the internet telling others what to do. The truth is they have no idea how you operate, what your privilege and access is, your mental and physical health, your trauma response, how your brain works, or more. I break down why this frustrates me so much, and how to avoid it.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • How no one can or should give general advice to an audience knowing what each individual should do

  • How folks giving generalized advice don’t know your personal unique situation, yet tell you what to do

  • Why it’s problematic that often people giving advice on the internet come from massive privilege and don’t acknowledge that

  • Why you should focus on sharing experiences and your stories, versus giving (or taking) blind advice
