2019/05/16 Being told to cheer up when were feeling deflated rarely has the desired effect. If anything, we find such advice unhelpful, regardless of how well-intended it is. You might be the recipient of well-intended advice from more than one person but will find their input or involvement more annoying than motivating. Dont become visibly frustrated with others believing they have advice you ought to be taking. Smile. Thank them. Move on.
