» Good Advice

"Be yourself" is useless advice. This coming from an almost useless website.
I remember watching a YouTube video of someone talking about how "Be yourself" is really bad advice. The point he made was that if you were worried about something it would still be there if you were being yourself. For example: If you see someone you'd like to talk to but are over critical of yourself, you will still be that person after taking the advice.

The YouTube video then said that the best advice to give in that situation was: Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Nothing is gained from "Being yourself" whereas being told to make mistakes gives you an objective. He also said something about "Fake it to make it" which was essentially be the person you want to be and then that will become you.
