My personal submission for this topic is “everything happens for a reason.”
#8. “Just forget about it.”
It’s that easy, eh? I think not.
#7. “Think about the people who have it worse than you.”
Someone will always have it worse than you, but that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to be upset when things go poorly, ffs.
#6. “Don’t stop, keep moving.”
What if I’m headed in the wrong direction?
#5. “Take vitamins.”
Unless your friend hocking that crap has an M.D. or a degree in nutrition, take their advice with a grain of salt.
#4. “Just get used it.”
Oh, you’re on fire? It’s stop hurting in a minute.
#3. “Buy a new dress, go out, and have fun.”
Look, shopping isn’t fun for everyone. Not only that, but some of us prefer to decompress in front of a television or with a book, not at a club with music so loud you can’t hear yourself think.
#2. “Don’t blame yourself for past mistakes.”
Who am I supposed to blame, exactly? And what happened to own your mistakes?
#1. “Just deal with it.”
If you say this to me and don’t get a middle finger in response, I’m having an exceptionally good day.
