Sometimes, all people need is a good wake-up call. Certain things just need to be heard in order to grow into better people, even if it doesn't compute at first. These Redditors will tell you exactly what you've been avoiding. Buckle up.

u/Alaskan_Lost asked: What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people?



Big mood.

High school was a long time ago. We haven't aged well. In fact, we look like our parents. And I don't remember you.

jjruns

I'm 23 and I already forgot most of the people.

stankleykong

The sad truth.

Giphy

Some people aren't fit to be parents.

o-hannah

Just started working at a daycare a couple weeks ago and yeah... it's really heartbreaking watching sh*tty parents ruin a good kid.

Thank you.

Who you are is not who you are doomed to be.

SERIOUSLY!

Stop looking at your phone while driving.

Temtaq

It's probably because I told them go f yourself.

They're both very dangerous. A phone can suck you in with it's content, you forget you're driving. And your face is supposed to be pointed at the road, either way. There is no excuse for drunk driving or using your phone. People think they have control over their actions until they don't. But then it's too late.


Being hit by a car hurts so much, you cannot even begin to imagine. And the psychological trauma is something that sticks for years and years and ruins your everyday life. Nobody should need to have therapy because some moron hit them with a car!!

And killing somebody because you couldn't leave your phone for a second? Good luck living with that on your conscience for the rest of your miserable life.

Oof.

Sometimes, it is you and not them

My ex-sister in law was b*tching for the 1,000th time about how everyone she worked with sucked, this person was awful, that person was the worst, yadda yadda. I'd finally had enough and said, "Michelle, there is one constant in this equation, this is a literal you problem". Last time I spoke to her, haaaaaaa.

Such sweet silence.

MamieJoJackson

Learned this the hard way.

Not everyone wants to be your friend. Nice does not mean loyalty. This goes double for coworkers.

Best way I heard this was, "You could be the juiciest peach ever created, but some people just don't like peaches."

Dudewithaviators57

Imma cut you off right there.

Giphy

Shut up and let people finish their sentences. Stop interrupting.

tossthis34

There is only one occasion it's ok to interrupt someone. And that's when that someone is a conversation dominator who literally will not stop the flow of words from their mouth to let anyone else participate. Especially when in a group setting.

I have a friend who does this, and if we don't interrupt her then it becomes a never ending reel of just her voice all night, and she expects everyone to listen. Yeah, no thanks, ima cut you off right there and see how everyone else is doing!

saturnbands182

More people need to realize this.

I can see your butt crack when you sit down or stand up

SteveM19

Not the peppers!

"No." Some people are socially anxious and can be extremely compliant. Saying no won't hurt someones feelings most of the time.

Loxreaten

The guy at the sandwich shop I went to asked me if I would get an uber (from my account) for his friend who looked like he was from the Hills Have Eyes. I said "No" and the a-hole didn't put the peppers on my sandwich.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
