You could be the sweetest person in the world, but that won't stop someone from disliking you.

You can't control the perception of others.

You're not going to please everyone.

Most of us are just a paycheck or two away from homelessness.

Sorry to disappoint you, but you have only Redditor Ionlyventinthisacc, who asked the online community: "What is one bitter truth you know about life?"


"No matter how hard..."

No matter how hard you try to be a good person and friend, you'll never be able to control whether or not someone actually gives a damn about you.

"That there will..."

That there are always a few people who will always be left out, who will never feel quite at home.

"Some people..."

Some people are born lucky and some are born to have the absolute crap kicked out of them at every opportunity.

"The universe..."

The universe is so astounding and we'll never see most of it.

"No matter..."

No matter how nice, pleasant or thoughtfully you treat others, there a very few people you can really trust.

"It's one thing..."

It's one thing to be acquainted with people you find to be friendly.

It's another to have true friends that stick with you through "thick and thin" over the years of your lives together.

"That you are the villain..."

That you are the villain in someone else's narrative.

"Family..."

Family is not necessarily blood, you can try and push and push but sometimes the most air headed, least understanding people are the ones you're born with.

"Some people..."

Some people truly cannot be helped.

No matter how hard you try, no matter how much you care about them, no matter how good you are to them, some people just want to burn.

"Just because..."

Just because you've had a bunch of bad things happen to you, doesn't actually mean it's going to get any better, even if you try hard to be positive and focus on making yourself the best version of you possible. Sometimes the best people get screwed over the worst and it just stays that way. A lot of times there are ups and downs, but it's never guaranteed.
