It seems that there are hundreds of sayings that are either witty or full of wisdom. The people on Reddit consider some of them to be complete nonsense and they took their time to explain why. The list below contains some of their suggestions.
1. The forgiveness
It seems that this is the kind of advice you should never take. Nobody could forgive you forever, not to mention the kind of trouble you could get yourself into.
2. The sleep
It is true that sleep is important but this saying is just wrong. Babies are often not sound asleep but have a rather disturbing sleeping pattern instead. They wake up multiple times a night.
3. The hurt
It appears that this is something that people tell the one they leave behind and that makes it not true by default. There are many people who would gladly confirm that this is simply not the truth.
4. The statement
Being yourself is often something you are either forced not to do or something people would consider to be too much. Some people cannot be themselves because they are not pleasant by nature.
5. The answer
Trying to understand this can be hard sometimes but people understand that sometimes it is the inevitable answer, unfortunately. It may not solve any problems but people are forced to deal with it.
6. The phrase
The phrase you see here is actually not the full version. You see, there are more than a few things people can say about their personal experience with the full proverb.
7. The pot
This one implies that if you take care of things and observe them, they would be normal all the time. This should be true with people as well but we all know that it does not work.
8. The money
It seems that rich people love using this quote as part of their effort to explain that money cannot buy happiness. We guess it could buy some but not all which makes the saying not entirely true.
9. The one about Einstein
It appears that people keep saying this in hopes it would serve as an excuse. Needless to say, nobody would believe that Einstein had low grades – he was actually a good student.
10. The water
Having the kind of mental health issues that deprive you of the will to do everyday things is something most of us know how it feels like but giving such advice would not do any favors.
11. The practice
Here is something that never really works. If you keep practicing something you are not good at initially, you are likely going to end up being perfect at doing something the wrong way.
12. The sleep
Here are two sayings that many people believe to be complete nonsense. Sleep is not something to neglect because it can be vital for your overall health and it actually makes you stronger, not weaker.
13. The choice
There are sayings that one could sometimes relate to and we guess that nobody could choose to be happy or not if they are suffering from depression. This is not a choice and it is hard to escape from it.
14. The reasons
This is one of the sayings that people need to stop using. None of the bad things in life happen for a reason defined by someone and there is no need for them to happen at all.
15. The chocolate
Here is a comparison that was never appropriate because of one simple fact. The chocolates that are wrapped individually usually come with a description explaining what is inside the wrappers.
16. The excuse
Here is a saying that is often used as yet another excuse. Some people have the most terrible attitude and they think that it would be okay to continue behaving like that because of a saying.
17. The college dropouts
It is one thing to drop out of Harvard but it is completely another to discontinue a regular college education. If they had what it takes to make it to Harvard, they would be good in any life scenario.
18. The good things
Here is yet another saying that many people believe in and they wait for a good thing all their lives. Sure enough, some of them receive good things but most of them end up just waiting instead of acting accordingly.
19. The strength
One person captioned this saying in the best possible way. What hurts you or drains you completely cannot make you stronger every time, as it would easily make you suffer or leave you traumatized.
20. The nonsense
Here is yet another popular saying that is used most often when someone is trying to settle an argument. It is actually crucially important who initiated the problem and we can all see why.
21. The looks
People who keep saying that looks don’t matter are not entirely right. Yes, looks are not everything but people always tend to prefer being around those who look better.
22. The sea
This is most often said to people who need comforting after a split up. People also tell it to themselves for similar reasons. Truth is that the sea is also full of trash and you get the analogy.
23. The customers
This is the best opinion on the list and the truth behind this saying is that it all comes down to money. Paying does not justify customers’ awful behavior regardless of the price.
24. The other meaning
This is another person’s opinion on the “Money cannot buy happiness” saying and it appears that they also consider it to be nonsense. Poverty is worse than that and it could cause a lot of unhappy moments, too.
25. The best
This one is the kind of saying nobody should use and the person who shared their opinion explained why.
