Every bit of advice from learned and experienced has its merit . Many while propelling forward such messages, forget the context and things in general of its applicability .
Likewise the person receiving it , not understanding it , in its true sprit and contexts, carries it too far. This creates a problem for the world.
There is no replacement for authenticity in life. But authenticity is something which takes an equal level of matured and learned audience to think beyond . In other cases faking till you prepare, still works . Provided it is used to its minimal medicinal level to boost the proceedings to tide over the situation , my personal opinion.
