after the fact

no self-help shit works
until you regard it as mere description
rather than prescription

growth cannot be forced
no diet or exercise routine
no amount of incantation or meditation works if it’s (done as) a chore

stuff unfolds naturally
when you do it out of some form of (self-reliant) enjoyment

and not as a form of enjoinment
or approximation (of adequacy)
trying to meet certain standards
and self&other-imposed expectations
seeking, in other words, the grounding outside the self

self-help tips give guidance or rather reinforcement merely
(and typically you discover them once you’ve already started out on the unique trajectory of your self-development)
