You are not a flower
"Bloom where you are planted" is terrible advice.
It comes off as "Just be happy where you are." How is that helpful?
I get what the bloom phrase is trying to say, though. It's trying to say what Roosevelt has already said:
"Do what you can with what you have where you are."
— Theodore Roosevelt
- take actions, even little ones
- be resourceful
- acknowledge your situation
You don't have to be happy.
You don't have to stay there long term.
You're not a flower.
