Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.


Reddit user, realduckbutter, wanted to know what you will never let go of when they asked:

"What’s the smallest hill you’re willing to die on?"

What is it about this hill that makes it worthwhile to fight over? Is it something ingrained in your core or something that you can never let go?

"Shape > Size"

"on that note, 99.9% of of people don’t give a damn about color imperfections or stretch marks. It’s completely irrelevant. The shape is what makes a nice butt."

"Edit: I admit that my statistic it totally made up. I made to say that MOST people don’t care."

Me Am No Good With Words And Things

The workplace is somewhere you (possibly) go to every day. If there's something about it you like or don't like, don't let it go.

Proper Bathroom Ambience

"Bathrooms at the work place should all be required to play music to help drown out the sounds being made"

"THANK YOU. I’ve thought this for years. Just some simple elevator music. Anything."

"I’d rather hear 10 hours of Yiruma’s River Flows In You than 10 seconds of whatever is flowing out of the poor guy next to me."

Better Be Some Money That Comes With That Title

"Don’t give me a “promotion” unless it comes with a pay raise. The only reason I would want a promotion is because I get paid more, not so I can flex my title on ppl"

"Flex that title into a raise somewhere else"

So Grateful

"All companies regardless of what industry they're in do their best work and are the most consumer friendly when they're in second or third place in their industry. The 'leader' is almost never the best option."

Nayko214

"The best service and the most exciting food is at two star Michelin restaurants because they’re playing offense not defense."

Whatever it is about these hills we're all supposedly dying, you cannot deny the fact it's super fascinating to see bodies dropping on them.

Do Any Of Us Know What We're Eating?

"When people say “it has chemicals in it”. Your mom is chemicals. Everything is chemicals."

nosmase2

"The whole "don't put it in your body if you can't pronounce it" nonsense is infuriating. An apple has things in it most people couldn't pronounce if you wrote out the chemical composition. And does my having taken organic chem and biochem classes mean I can eat things others can't?"

"Don't even get me started on the anti-GMO crap."

"Pay-it-forward drive-through chains are pointless. They aren’t really helping anyone, they’re just making everything awkward."

lassie86

"Im a starbucks barista and like its a nice thing dont get me wrong, but the way our systems work things get confusing and orders or items get lost so people end up getting free but wrong orders :( it also puts the customer on the spot to make a decision to continue or not and i hate that it's so awkward. I always just say hey your order has been paid for have a great day!"

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"

In this day and age of advancement, it's crazy how so many things leave our heads scratching.

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?

Everyone in New York wondered that for the past decade until they took the final payphone.

I always wonder about companies that still make you send a fax.

Y'all have heard of email right?
