If one more person says these things to me I swear I'm going to punch them in the face, then repent later. Ppl repeat these sayings without thinking about what they really mean.They try to sound religious, but it makes them look nuts, imo.
"everything happens for a reason." Oh really, and what reasoning is that.
"what doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Well you think. What if it does kill the person? Does that mean that person was weak? As if one can prevent their own death.
"God has a plan for you." This is exactly what someone needs to hear that has received a cancer dx, or just buried their child.
Truth is bad things, good things happen to all people. That's life.
This is my vent. If you have ever said these things to someone, think about it. If it's not uplifting, positive, and/or encouraging then don't say it. Just my .02 cents.
