Uncomfortable Truths People Really Don’t Wanna Hear (20 Posts)

Sit down, friend, because I’m about to hand you some of the best pieces of advice you’ll ever receive.

Redditor u/holdmymeatpipe asked Reddit:

“What is an absolute truth that no one wants to hear?”

And while my personal favorite is TURN YOUR FRIGGING MUSIC OFF IN PUBLIC, there are so many gems in here that they’re all worth reading.

1. Challenge yourself

You need to have your views challenged. Being around and positively engaging with people who disagree with you is one of the healthiest intellectual practices we can do.


2. Family

Just because someone is related to you doesn’t mean they are a good person.


3. Control

You can’t control what happens to you, only how you react to it.


4. Love

Just because you love someone it doesn’t mean they will love you back. No matter how hard you try to get them to, they just won’t.


5. Turn it down

No one wants to hear your shitty music anywhere.


6. See? Nobody cares.

Your spouse/child/home/job/vacation, etc. is not nearly as important to anyone else as it is to you.


7. Knowledge

We don’t know everything and probably never will.


8. It’s easier

Life is easier for attractive people.


9. There’s jerks in these hills

No matter how nice you are, people will still just be assholes to you just cuz.


10. You won’t be remembered

There’s going to be a day where you are totally forgotten by everyone.


11. Hypocritical

Everyone’s a hypocrite. Even you.


12. You aren’t special

You are always replaceable.


13. Doesn’t always apply

Not every “real talk”, “tough to swallow pill”, or “harsh truth” that you have to offer someone is going to be accurate to them, or their situation.


14. Uplift

That you need to uplift others to improve society and the world


15. Someone better

There is always someone better than you


16. It all evens out

Everyone you love will die. Everyone you hate will die. Everything ends.


17. Deal

That there are people who won’t like you or agree with you and you won’t be able to change their mind so you just have to deal with it


18. No one is at the wheel

No one is at the wheel. There is no one leading the planet, just powerful people, companies, and countries all struggling together against everyone else for power, money, and control.


19. Kids

All children are innocent, but they’re not all good. Some people will grow up to be fucking assholes regardless of what they’re exposed to.


20. It’s all bad

Things are going to keep getting worse on our planet and we are in for some serious human tragedy.
