I’m sick and tired of crap. Really. Whenever I hear these overenthusiastic, cheery, and often untrue statements, I want to fly into a rage and punch everyone.
“Look for the light at the end of the tunnel!”
“The day is always darkest before the dawn!”
“Life gets better! Just hold on!”
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about dancing in the rain!”
Can’t you imagine the cheesy smiles and fake sincerity? I can. I’m so tired of hearing this. I want a real reason to be hopeful, not because some stupid quote told me to walk blindly and just “believe.” I don’t want to just believe, I want to see it for real. Give me evidence. Proof. Tell me why I should hold on.
