Prince Harry Receives Backlash On Social Media After Telling Firms They Should 'Give Everyone Time To Focus On Themselves'

Prince Harry has come under fire after telling firms they should ‘give
everyone time to focus on themselves’ during his first appearance of the year
plugging his employer, mental health startup BetterUp. 

The Duke of Sussex, 38, appeared as part of a virtual panel
alongside BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaux, pal Serena Williams and his wife, Meghan Markle.  

“From an employer perspective, you can’t expect your people to put in
the work on themselves when you’re not giving them the time to do that,” Harry
said this as he went on to explain how he had suffered ‘burn out’ before waxing
lyrical about the importance of ‘taking time for inner work’.

But his advice appeared to fall well short of the mark judging by a
number of comments on social media.

‘Eh! What the hell is he talking about? He’s never done a hard day’s
work in his life,’ stated one Twitter user named Tanner.

‘It’s always me-me time with Prince Harry. Real people have to work for
a living…’ wrote Richard James. 

‘Sorry, just don’t take him seriously anymore,’ wrote one user.

‘I know he’s qualified to talk about being mentally unstable because
that’s all he does but what does he know about having a job or balance between
the two. Exploiting him is not kind,’ said another.

‘OMG is this a sick joke?.….. Haz doesn’t actually know what the word
work means!’ wrote Carrol McDonald.

‘This is a man who has more troubles than those he thinks he has. He
needs professional help not being put on a platform & showcased as if he’s
in recovery,’ said Tessa Cate.

‘It’s really difficult to take mental health advice from a 40-year-old
who in the middle of a pandemic was complaining on Oprah that he only had his
mom’s millions to rely on because dad cut him off. This is all during people
losing their livelihoods,’ explained another Twitter poster.

‘When he has punched a clock with no flexible work schedule, sat in the
same grey office day in and day out pushing papers, so the execs get more money
for 25 years, then he’d be worthy of my attention. Until then, you giving him
millions for this is insulting,’ wrote Diana Rodzim.

‘Geeeezus this is getting so ridiculous,’ surmised another user on
social media. 

Speaking about mental health, Prince Harry explained to those watching
the online broadcast: “It has to start from yourself, this idea you can find
mental fitness from other people. As a team, you can encourage each other,
but it starts at home and it starts internally. The effect that has for
yourself and the people around you – [as a business leader] to say, you know
what, everyone is going to have today to focus on themselves.

“As I said at the beginning, everyone has such busy days, if you have 15
minutes of white space…I allot half an hour or 45 minutes in the morning when
one kid has gone to school and the other is having a nap, there’s a break in
our program. It’s like, right, it’s either a workout, take the dog for a walk,
get out in nature, maybe meditate.”

He said that as a father, husband and someone starting a business, he
‘knows he needs to meditate every day.’

The Duke continued: “I hope everybody is available to do that but…once
you have to show up for other people, self-care is the first thing to drop
away.

“As someone starting up a business, as a husband, as a dad – you just
don’t have the time to do that. Mental fitness is the pinnacle, it’s what
you’re aiming for. The road towards that can be really bumpy… it’s called
inner ‘work’ for a reason. The outer work begins so much easier when the inner
work falls into place.”

Yet despite the Duke’s sincerity, his advice didn’t cut it with many
watching. 

‘It’s very difficult for me to take this man seriously or be inspired by
him when his actions towards his family for instance have been so utterly
lacking in compassion and consideration. Not someone I can, or want to, look to
as a role model in any way whatsoever,’ said Gia Gordon.

‘He should take his own advice, start working towards apologizing to his
family! Prince Harry, you don’t come across as a nice person! Please stop
lecturing people!’ advised one commenter. 

‘A lazy bum unable to do any real work tells us what and how things
really are in this world. How boring it is. Go away, Harry. The only people who
need you are your sekants and journalists, to the rest of the world you’re
nothing with a title,’ said another.

‘I recommend everyone watch the Ex-Prince of the Realm make an even
bigger fool of himself…. lol The laughter from Buckingham Palace was heard
across the Atlantic tonight….,’ added one user. 

‘If Harry spent less time DISSECTING life and just lived it honestly he
might succeed…’ advised Simone Ryan.
