16 Words Of Wisdom That Turn Out To Be Complete BS!
News > 16 Words Of Wisdom That Turn Out To Be Complete BS!
We usually hear these from the elderly when we seek their advice. Life is challenging and we all need certain tips and tricks to help us through ugly situations. However, these words of wisdom, which our elders heard from their elders, are total bullsh*t at times. Life is never fair and it's evil. Here, we give you 16 words of wisdom that turn out to be full of lies!
1. You can't buy happiness with money...
So, who and in what condition said this? What kind of psychology were they into? Today, we live in a world that measures EVERYTHING with money. It's governed by capitalism. So don't play the glass half full game. Wake up!
It's true that money never plays a role between human relationships. Or...does it? We think it's stupid to look someone in the eye and say these words when they have to borrow tons of money for a wedding!
2. What's on the inside is more important...
Biggest lie in history. Just an answer created to avoid 'So am I not pretty/handsome?' Yes, how you feel and behave are very important, but nothing will beat that first impression. Be honest, haven't you read all those 'How to nail jobs, how to impress people?' guides that all talk about giving a good first impression by looking pretty and smart!
3. The biter gets bit in the end...
It's ok, keep calm. All the bad things done to you will be reversed tenfold in the future. Seriously? Who buys that?! Look at Game of Thrones and that sick sick sicko Ramsay Bolton! We're not telling you to go crush people and do evil, but it never hurts to realize the world you live in.
4. If you treat people nicely, they treat you nicely, too...
So all the things people do behind my back while I treat them nicely are acts of kindness? What about people who used me as a stepping stone while I remained quiet because I didn't want to create a scene?
5. You can only reach higher ranks if you work hard!
Sooo, what am I supposed to do when the real estate market is literally obliterated and I have to work at least 50+ years to be able to buy a house? Working hard is a very vague term here!
6. As long as you do your best, no one will mess with you...
This is quite the other way around. If you're 'that' guy at the office, people will start getting suspicious about your achievements and begin plotting your demise. On the other hand, this also means you're living in an ideal work environment. Guess what? It's every man for himself!
7. Enough is as good as a feast...
This is another lie made up by the rich folk. It's different than being thankful/grateful. It's more about being ambitious to earn more and more. Just a few entries above, we said you need to work 50 years to be able to buy your own place. How is that going to work out then?
8. Everyone creates their own chances...
Richie Rich begs to differ...Just like Batman, Iron-Man or Prince George! Some people work their a**es off to make 10% of these guys' fortune while others don't move an inch.
9. True love always wins...
In theory, this is so true. But in practice, there are so many relationships out there built on the other party's wealth or opportunities. We live in a world where people use each other for their own benefits. What else did you expect?
10. Think pink and pink happens...
And you thought you could shape the world by thinking pink? The saying should be more like do everything you can AND then start thinking pink.
11. Starting a task is almost as good as finishing it...
History is filled with great starts and devastating endings...No one stops for a second to think about all the effort you have to spend during the whole process. Keep in mind that it took Henry Ford to reach the letter 'T' to be able to build his first Model T! Do we have to talk about Edison?
12. You need nothing but yourself and your thoughts...
Into the Wild much? Even then, he had over $20K to make a fresh start. Eastern philosophy focuses on the mind and the power of thought, yes, but it doesn't mean people have telekinetic powers. These are all important supplements.
13. Unlucky at cards, lucky in love...
It's just another comforting sentence for all the losers out there. If this worked the way people said so, Dan Bilzerian would be a very miserable man. However, I don't see him suffering at all!
14. YOU are the key to happiness...
Another first world lie...If you have the guts to do so, go and say the same things to people who lose their families each and every day in war zones. In a perfect world, this might be possible, but as we've been saying numerous times, the world is an evil place!
15. Good people always win...
Ned Stark...Do we need to say more? This is another fantasy created by Hollywood. Almost every time, the good guys end up winning or saving the planet.
16. Time heals everything...
This is another misunderstood saying. Time doesn't 'heal.' You just adapt to the situation instead. If time really healed, how come we all end up crying over our past lovers every time we remember the good times?
