Blogs That Make Outlandish Claims

A blog (not associated with WordPress) that I’ve been reading as of late, pissed me off today, with the suggestion that we must all be “grateful,” and that that alone will create more “happiness” in our lives!

I say, “bullshit,” and that they obviously don’t understand the way things are today…

Now, I know these blogs are ultimately wanting to be helpful, but it’s sad when someone who professes to have great insight, relies on the notion that, “some people have it worse!”

It’s that kind of “comparison” thinking that a lot of old-timers use, in an attempt to understand and sound relevant.

But, they fail… oh, do they fail!

And, part of their failure has to do with not caring about the challenges that droves of people are facing today (and every day), from all sorts of adverse “life” situations.

As much as I’d like to continue following the outlandish blog, I know that I cannot.

Are you following any blogs (past or present), that make outlandish claims such as this (or something equally offensive)?

  1. I also don’t understand why some people think gratitude is some magical panacea that makes all of life’s problems go away. I’m reading a book about gratitude right now that has a very refreshing perspective – that gratitude is helpful, but it doesn’t make people’s unrelated problems disappear.
