If we are going to sit in room, brainstorm, think tank, about reality and what reality consists of, what are the world's and humanities problems and how can we solve them, you will never find a person in such a meeting, complaining about narrative.
Its just common sense. If you look around the world, the brightest, smartest, highest IQ's, humanitarians, philosophers, etc are not sitting around complaining about narrative. They are instead trying to figure out how to solve problems.
This is something that can be found in a book entitled, "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff."
I'm not speaking for you, but your annoyance with "narrative" is relative. Others are not annoyed by this and accept people as they are. (so Both PArties can't be right. It eaither is, or isn't annoying)
So in all honesty, who is the one that has it better in life, the one who accepts and is at peace, or the one who is annoyed and needs to warn?
Beware of those who speak in the second-person narrative.
But telling another what they think and how they feel is merely a projection of one's own thoughts and feelings, and not the one that they are dictating for. It is basically slander and libel.

Honestly this should be in rant
Honestly it isn't. Language is a philosophical topic.

Where does the fear lie?
Who is frightened of what?
It's only a catchy title meant to draw people in.

You're angry. You'll get over it.
These aren't simple observations; these are wild guesses and stabs in the dark. How reckless with the truth can we be?
Notice how instead of speaking about their own insights, what has happened to them in their own case and how they deal with it, they speak from an angle of authority, attempting to bully one’s thoughts by looking down at a condescending height and telling it like it is—or at the very most, how they think it is.
But as soon as they open their mouths and attempt to speak for me, they utter nothing but lies, for it is only themselves they can speak for, and it is only themselves they can live through.
Are you telling someone what they are?
irony 1 |ˈīrənē, ˈiərnē|
noun ( pl. ironies )
the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect: “Don't go overboard with the gratitude,” he rejoined with heavy irony.
• a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result: [ with clause ] : the irony is that I thought he could help me.
• (also dramatic or tragic irony )a literary technique, originally used in Greek tragedy, by which the full significance of a character's words or actions are clear to the audience or reader although unknown to the character.
ORIGIN early 16th cent. (also denoting Socratic irony): via Latin from Greek eirōneia ‘simulated ignorance,’ from eirōn ‘dissembler.’
Not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something than one really does.
insincere - false - devious - hollow-hearted
As generally understood, the person accusing (the "pot") is understood to share some quality with the target of their accusation (the "kettle"). The pot is mocking the kettle for a little soot when the pot itself is thoroughly covered in the same. An alternative interpretation, recognised by some, but not all, sources is that the pot is sooty (being placed on a fire), while the kettle is clean and shiny (being placed on coals only), and hence when the pot accuses the kettle of being black, it is the pot’s own sooty reflection that it sees: the pot accuses the kettle of a fault that only the pot has, rather than one that they share.
