Let’s Discuss: Sentiments for Other People

Are there things you say to others that when said to you, don’t feel like you’d expect? Like enjoy your kids while they’re little. Well, yes, but you know big kids are great too. Or “Let go, let God.” Oy! That one is great, but when it’s used against towards me, its bitter aftertaste burns.

This sounds so lovely. Like, the only true failure is the failure to try. Don’t be afraid to love, be afraid not to. It all sounds so lovely until it’s ME.

The best adventure ever?

I don’t know about you, but my best adventure ever does not involve hives or crying.

So, what about you? What words of wisdom could you do without?
