People can be so melodramatic, don't you agree? There are things out there that still surprise me to know people get upset about. I'm of the belief that if you can't control it, there's no need to get upset about it. There are things that you shouldn't fret about either––just get them done.

After Redditor SayLittleDoMuch asked the online community, "What is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be?" people weighed in.


"You don't always..."

Spending time alone with yourself. You don't always have to be around people, in fact it's bad not to spend time alone.

"It was actually..."

Jury duty. It was actually quite interesting to get an inside look at being on a jury.

"People always make it sound..."

Being in a long committed relationship.

People always make it sound so black and white, a little communication can take you far.

"They're not fun..."

Root canals.

They're not fun, but if go to someone who knows what they're doing, there's no real pain. The fear leading up to it was much worse than anything that actually happened.

"I cannot tell you..."

Sarcasm. I cannot tell you how many times my mom has told me to be more respectful after I let out a sarcastic comment.

"Focus on yourself..."

Weight lifting.

Seriously; don't focus on the weights/other people in the gym. Focus on yourself and master form/technique on each movement and progressively increase your strength. Really not that deep unless you get into powerlifting/bodybuilding/olympic lifting.

"There is still wide stigma..."

Therapy. There is still wide stigma around it even though it's more than common these days in western countries especially. You don't have to have a mental health issue or be weird to go to therapy. Sometimes it's good to have someone to talk to even if it is for once or twice.

"The fear of getting one..."

Spinal taps. Well, now they call them "lumbar punctures" to make it less scary. The fear of getting one is worse than the test itself, it only hurts for a fraction of a second.

"Sometimes..."

Eating simple, cheap meals. Sometimes the simple stuff is just better than the complex. Hands down i'd take a bowl of 'leftover risotto' any day over 90% of restaurants I've been to. You don't need 10 ingredients and 5 spices to make good food.

"People are weird..."

Writing a will. People are weird about thinking about their death or having conversations about what they should do. Have the conversation. I assure you, we all die, and dying intestate or without a personal directive makes it way more difficult for your family.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
