When a person sees someone they care about going through a struggle or crisis, their instinct is to uplift them with positive advice.

But sometimes, the wisdom imparted by friends isn't always helpful or relevant to the situation.

Curious to hear from strangers online who could do without specific knowledge, Redditor Saibotnl1 asked:

"What life advice can just f'k off?"

These Redditors have a problem with how certain people have on outlook on life.

Time To Rest

"Sleep when you’re dead."

"Cool, but you’re going to be dead a lot sooner."

– Tag2graff

Irrelevant Sadness

"People have it so much worse than you so don’t be sad!"

– notrachelmar

"To that I like to say, 'people have it so much better than you so don't be happy!'"

– ___jupiter____

Your Life Path

"Almost anything relating to what age you must be in order to buy a house, have children, marry, have a profession, or do anything else. Seriously, everyone's life is different from everyone else's. Make your life the way you want it to be. If you so desire. Up to you."

– Frn071

On The Contrary

“Cheaters never prosper”

"Yes, they f'king do."

– waqasnaseem07

People can get out of any situation they find displeasing.

But others feel people should just "stick it out."

Ignoring Bullies

"Just ignore bullys or get someone else to handle it for you. I have never seen this work, only makes it worse. The only effective way I've seen to deal with them is by not making yourself an easy target and make them scared to f'k with you again. If going psycho on their a** is the only thing they'll respond to that's their fault. Also want to add in schools they will punish you for self defense but that punishment is only sitting around a few hours in detention or sitting around at home with a suspension. The punishment is temporary boredom, it's absolutely nothing compared to being bullied and when it's over the important message will still stand that you will not tolerate being a victim."

– User Delted

​Remain to be Miserable

"Stick it out"

"Whether that's sh**ty jobs, shi**y relationships, shi**y living situations..."

"By all means don't just give up on things when you face challenges, but if something feels wrong or is wrecking your peace then take some control and change it if you can!"

– petitezoey

"Easy for you to say," might be an auto-response to these suggestions for many people.

Invitation For Recklesslessness

"Live like everyday was your last"

Yall know what people do when they learn they have a single day left to live?"

– LimeGrass619

A Possible Consequence

"I did that as a teenager and ended up homeless and addicted to heroin. Didn’t pan out for me too well."

"19 years sober though today."

– Open-Section-7263

A Practical Approach

"If I knew with certainty that I had one day left, I'd double-check all my financials, my will, and my insurance policies, make sure my wife had all of my passwords and knew where all the money was, spend the rest of the day with her and the kids, then call the medical examiner and ask to lie down on the gurney so that when I die they won't strain their back moving my remains out of my house."

– Asteriad

Nose Stuck In A Book

"Work while they sleep. Study while they party"

"That's not a recipe for success, that's a recipe for a lot of white hairs, burnout syndrome and a stroke before your 40s..."

– Khomuna

Doesn't Apply To Everyone

"Do what you love and money will follow"

"I love walking my dogs and grilling food for my friends but That sh*t doesn't pay the bills as well as my engineering degree!"

– Elons_android

While people's intentions are good, they're better off keeping their two cents in their own pockets.

Not everyone likes to hear platitudes.

Sometimes, people just want to know they're not alone with their problems over listening to unlikely solutions that are nothing more than superficial pick-me-ups.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.
