Not a real place

The internet is not a real place. 

To be safe on these streets, you need to assume that by default every “advice” you see on the internet is not for you. If you don’t, you’ll be so misled and you’d have nobody to blame for it. 

You need to situate that internet wisdom in the context of your everyday life for it to align with reality. For instance, someone makes a lengthy post of how he’d rather go unemployed than take the offer of a Big Tech company because of XYZ reason. Before such “high” moral decision inspires you. You need to remind yourself that, the other guy is a cat dad. Mabel the cat, is the only fellow he’s responsible for. Meanwhile, you on the other hand are the singular hope of your family. 

In short, just assume the internet is not a real place and you’ll be fine.
