Poll: Why do people say "just be yourself", when it is the most worthless possible advice?

How is that meant to be helpful in any possible way?

If people don't like you, clearly being yourself hasn't worked; why would you just continue to repeat what has failed?

    Because why try to be someone youre not? Have you ever tried to act like something youre not and it just didnt feel like you or it didnt feel right? The point is, being yourself feels better. instead of trying to be someone youre not because people dont like your true self, why not just drop the people out of your life that can accept and support you for who you are? Why must we live to try so hard to be someone we're not to impress people who dont appreciate you to begin with? Its useless.

    When people say be yourself they're telling you "don't be fake, because you'll not only be lying to them but you'll be lying to yourself." Then you'll get so caught up in being something you're not, that you just start to feel sad, you'll loose interest in the person you're trying to impress because you're trying to find yourself. And if they don't like you for you then that's their problem, just move on even if it is hard. Because you can't love someone if you don't love yourself.

    It's a quick and feel good answer. Total BS but it sounds well enough.

    Because, if you just be yourself, there is no need for uncanny advice.

    If you're not yourself then who would you be? You cant be someone else.

    I think its the equivalence of "fu¢k everyone else." Which sounds better to me.

    It's only worthless if YOU are.
