I agree that being kind to yourself is important, therapy is important if you can afford it. I guess my issue is two-fold: 1) the self-appointed experts and 2) the notion that imperfect people are losers, need to learn to "crush it" or improve in endless ways. That's the predatory part of it. My last trope about dead stars in a way is exactly what you're saying.
