I don’t agree with “don’t let the sun go down on your anger.” When my husband and I are fighting over something stupid, it helps to sleep it off without making up. When we wake up the next morning we usually realize we were angry for no reason and get over it easily.
“Good people always win.”
Absolutely. Not. True.
Maybe true for fictional works, but definitely not real life. I have seen good people winning so rarely. Somehow “bad” people always get away with it and live so much better than the rest of us.
Time heals all wounds. I heard this a lot after my dad died. Sure, as time goes on, it might get better, but the pain is always there. The wound his death caused will never fully heal.
“It is what it is”
I hear it a lot and it drives me crazy when people give that as advice. That literally means nothing and you’re not helping anyone by saying it.
“Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.” I’ve never understood the logic of keeping a potentially toxic person as your friend to what? Use them? It doesn’t make any sense at all.
“It’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all” losing someone you love to death or a break up is the worst feeling in the world! And it’s not always better to look back on memories. Sometimes that’s too painful.
When you’re feeling bad about yourself and someone says “others have it much worse than you.” As if you’re inconsiderate for thinking of yourself and as if others suffering negates your own. Wrong.
“Ignorance is bliss”. It’s important to be informed, especially during times like these where making a difference and speaking out is everything. You can’t do that if you’re ignorant.
