We are inundated with so much "entertainment" content these days.

The list of what I refuse to waste time on long outweighs the stuff I can't wait to see.

Some of these shows look like a mess.

RedditorRepairOdd2957wanted to hear about what we're avoiding in film and television and why? They asked:

"What's one show/movie that you just refuse to watch, no matter how popular it is and why?"

I avoid most tv. Especially if it's a reality thing. And I'm at peace in that life choice.

"50 shades of grey (cause it’s terrible)."

"I read the first book knowing it was terrible but I just had to 'experience"'it. However, I HIGHLY recommend this blog, it's so funny and I'm not ashamed to say I read every single post : http://redlemonade.blogspot.com/p/fifty-shades-of-tedious-f*ckery.html"

Gross...

"The Bachelor."

Nubianfromthenine

"And the Bachelorette. It all feels gross."

ConnieLingus24

"It is gross. I still can’t believe someone pitched that idea and everyone in the room was like 'that sounds awesome!' Then they aired it and waaaaaaay too many people said 'this is awesome!' Meanwhile I’m feeling like the crazy one for thinking it’s gross."

No K!

"Keeping up with the Kardashians. There's no reason to watch it."

The_Young_Trader

"I'm proud of having never seen as much as ten consecutive seconds of anything K*rdashian. That was everywhere a few years ago, but I got to be very fast at closing browser tabs or changing the channel quickly whenever it showed up."

"Grey's Anatomy. I don't need to see 18 seasons of people in a hospital."

I do love Grey's. So rethink avoiding this one.

"I sat down to watch it at the height of its popularity. Five minutes in, the power went out and so I took it as a sign from the universe to just not continue."

"Thirteen Reasons Why. I work in mental health, and this show should never have been created."

Spartanhalforc

"I didn't watch all of it. I remember a scene in which Clay says 'I cost a girl her life because I was afraid to love her.' That disturbed me. As if the suicide was partially his fault because they didn't become a couple on her schedule. Nobody is required to date someone at the time that the other person wants it."

REDDIT

"The idea of blaming someone for your suicide-- and taking such extra measures to make sure that they know it's their fault-- is so toxic. It never sat right with me, both while reading the book and watching."

Too Cruel

"90 day fiancé. It just sounds like a really cruel premise and I feel bad for the people who come from another country to marry someone just to end up hating them or realizing they’re not compatible."

carissadraws

"Season one was really interesting and felt way more like a good look at the process of the fiancé visa. Then it got more focused on the drama then by season… 4 it just started fully exploiting people and got too uncomfortable to watch."

Be Quiet!

"The Masked Singer. Just… no."

Poorly-Drawn-Beagle

"The kid I nanny used to watch it and she would tel me about it and bee like 'guess who the bee was?!?! DONNY OSMOMD!' And have absolutely no ducking clue who Donny Osmomd was because she was 8. It was hilarious honestly."

somechild

"When I saw that Rudy Giuliani was one of the singers I wondered who did the singing for him because I can't imagine him having a good singing voice."

"The Fast and the Furious. I just don't care about cars going vroom vroom."

"The first few are pretty decent heist movies but they get ridiculous, the latest one they strap a car to an icbm and go to space in diving gear. That’s not even the dumbest scene."

Bored Now

"The Walking Dead, I’m just really tired of zombie stuff, there was a while where everything had zombies in it and it was just super overused and talking to the fans of the show it’s basically, find base, get locked in, have fight with people or zombies and have to find more home."

Well I have successfully avoided most of this mess. Good on me.

There are just some actions we never grow out of.

When it's time to grow up... grow up.

Let's discuss the signs and scenarios we should know about.

On occasion, all of us look in a mirror and wish there was something about our physical characteristics that was different.

Being a few inches taller, having a different hair color, maybe a smaller nose.

But then, as we continue to stare at our reflection, we might suddenly realize there are some things about ourselves which we don't mind at all.

In fact, we might even be proud of our eye color, the shape of our ears, or having an enviable jawline.

For most people, finding their best attribute might not be so difficult to determine, owing to slim pickings.

But for those blessed with good genetics, choosing their best physical trait might be a bit more difficult.

Redditor askredditiscool was curious to hear what people with enviable genetics considered their best physical quality, leading them to ask:

"People who have 'won the genetic lottery' what qualities do you have?"

Self-awareness is a strong and admirable quality which far too few people have.

Particularly as those who are truly self-aware are often willing and able to admit when they're wrong, or if there is something about their personality which could, and probably should, be changed.

Truth be told, it doesn't take a great deal of self-awareness to realize and acknowledge your less than admirable traits.

More than likely, these are the things about ourselves that we've likely hoped we might change for a very long time.

Redditor sound-hub was eager to hear people share their least admirable qualities, leading them to ask:

"What's one bad trait about you?"

It's hard not to look back in life on some things we wish we handled them differently.

Some of these are relatively minor, like wishing we chose a different hotel on a vacation, or being a bit more friendly to certain people in middle school.

But sometimes, we look back on decisions we made, and wonder if our lives might be different had we not made certain decisions, or behaved in a certain way.

Redditor lillyrosebennet was curious to hear what the Reddit community regrets most in their lives, leading them to ask:

"What do you regret?"
