This is great advice, and also something that SOOOO many bad players decide to ignore. People who complain about losing, and then blow up at someone when they try giving them advice, will never get better. Having an outsiders opinion, whether that outsider is better or worse of a player than you, can be extremely beneficial, because it gets you thinking more.
Also, something that goes along with the last part, realize that there will be stretches where you lose... it's going to happen whether you like it or not. It isn't the site conspiring against you, nor is it someone cheating you, it is simply the variance that comes along with playing poker. It seems to happen more often online, but that's just because you're playing more hands in a shorter period of time online, even if only playing one table.
