Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know…
Have you ever been accused of making light of someone else’s situation, either by that person or someone else?
I don’t know that I’ve been accused of deliberately making light of someone else’s situation in a mean or nasty way, but I probably have made light of such situations in an attempt to offer solace or encouragement.
Unfortunately, they are mostly empty platitudes, such as:
It’s not as bad as you think it is.
It could have been worse.
You’ll get beyond this.
This, too, shall pass.
You’re making a mountain out of a molehill.
There’s light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s always darkest before the dawn.
When what I really feel like saying is:
Get over yourself.
You’re so fucked.
