I had developed huge respect for him.
But whatever happening for the past many days on this or other related thread, I am shocked to see Steve's responses / reactions /reasonings. I seriously doubt if he is same Steve. Which one is the real ? For me these two are different.
I am sorry I personally find this rude and just opposite to what we teach others for PD.
Something missing, Steve.
I am no one on this forum to comment. But couldnt stop myself posting here.
I once briefly dated a guy who was a writer. He had written a lot of inspiring content and when I met him I thought he was amazing. He had to be, since from his writing he seemed to understand life and live it well. So well that he was teaching and inspire others.
But I soon realised that the person who wrote the inspiring content was not perfect. Or even amazing in my eyes. I was disappointed. In fact, he had his challenges in life and sometimes struggled even with the stuff he taught others.
I had put him on a pedestal.
I realised that people who teach personal development are not necessarily perfect. They might have problems like everyone else, but they can also inspire people and give good advice.
I guess because of that experience, I find it odd how people are criticising Steve for having an ego and having emotions (such as feeling betrayed or whatever), and acting on them. We all do that. We're all human, aren't we? (And I'm not saying that like I think it's a weakness. I feel it's important to honour emotions and to have enough of an ego to be a functional human being with boundaries.)
