To each their own, right?
While that’s an important way to live our lives, it can also be frustrating when we realize that some people just don’t see the world the same way we do and they most likely never will.
It’s just one of those things that we have to deal with during our time on this planet.
What do you wish more people understood?
Let’s see what AskReddit users had to say about this.
1. You don’t have to know everything.
“That it’s ok to say “I don’t know” to something they don’t know instead of guessing and pretending like they know…”
2. Very important.
“The importance of mental health.
I wish it was viewed to be equally important as physical health by more people.”
3. Need that downtime.
“I don’t want to be constantly doing things.
I especially don’t want to be volunteered for things. Let me veg out. I’m not depressed.
I just want to chill.”
4. Learn some history!
“History is not just military and political history.
A whole lot has happened that involved neither wars nor kings.”
5. Thank you!
“Not being available 24/7 despite being reachable 24/7 is not a crime.”
6. All the news.
“That all news has a bias and if you want to be reliably informed, you need to be looking at news from many different source, even those with a bias you don’t agree with.
And to aware of our own biases that will attempt to reject everything we already disagreed with and readily accept those which we already agreed with.”
7. Discriminated against.
“Disabled people are not always mentally challenged.
I was suddenly disabled, I need braces and a rollator to walk and use a wheelchair for longer distances.
I’m also blind in my left eye and can no longer drive. This was all the result of an illness.
I still have my brain and my normal functions. Yet I get discriminated and disrespected because people think I did something stupid.”
8. Not everything.
“The fact that grades don’t define who you are and what you can be.
They are important, so you shouldn’t just ignore them, but don’t be a perfectionist. If you get a D or a C, that is pretty close to average, which is good.
I’m the kind of person that has a heart attack over getting a B and I hate myself for it.”
“”But they’re so nice, no way could I imagine them doing that.”
Being nice ≠ being a good person.
That’s just not how it works.”
10. It’s complicated.
“Just because there is a law allowing you to do something doesn’t mean its right.
Just because something is against the law doesn’t make it wrong.”
11. All this stuff.
“The earth is round, correlation isn’t causation, taste in music isn’t a fact, freedom of religion means freedom to believe and practice YOUR religion not push it on other people.
Facts don’t care about your feelings, and, yes, climate change exists.”
12. Enough of these.
“That guilt trips aren’t just manipulative, but also emotionally abusive.
You need to be able to accept when someone tells you no, and if you can’t, you need to communicate your feelings like an adult.”
“There’s the misconception that 5G will give peeps brain cancer.
I work with equipment that gives out a ton of RF. I know from experience that 5G is not powerful enough to hurt you…. unless… you are hanging out right next to the antennas, and/or holding onto them.
If you grab the antenna, it will start to cook you from the inside. Look up RF burns. Or dont….. but thats the same for all cellphone towers. They just put out a lot of power, thats why they are behind gates and stuff and warnings to keep peeps away.
Thats all I got for ya for now.”
14. If you say so.
“Even if they’re not used, pianos should be tuned at least once per year.
Otherwise, the strings can become brittle and their ability to be flexible for tuning purposes compromised.
Likewise, the tuning pins in the “pinblock” can become resistant to change and not hold the strings steady once they’ve been tuned.”
Okay, now it’s your turn!
In the comments, tell us the things that you wish more folks out there understood.
Please and thank you!
