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.

"It's one thing..."

"Some people..."

Some people truly cannot be helped.

"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.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?
