Platitudes

I was just thinking how very much I loath Platitudes when Oprah.com sent me something, “The Universe is trying to tell you something (and you need to Listen)…………….THAT’S IT! I am stepping out of my generally calm and (and yes I know loud) voice and saying
SHUT UP OPRAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I feel like that guy in the movie “Network” when he sticks his head out the window and yells, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!
So here are a few other platitudes I loath.
“What Doesn’t Kill you makes you Stronger”- No it just doesn’t kill you!
“Time heals all wounds”-No it doesn’t, and I have the scars to prove it.
“There is always some one worse off than you.” – Ugh, no there isn’t because MY Worse, is MY worse. Can I just get to own that.
“I could have broken my neck”- Ugh no you didn’t, you stubbed your toe for Pete’s sake. I ought to know I have broken mine twice and it wasn’t that easy. And by the way who is that Pete guy anyway? And what stake doe’s he have in my sake!
“Everything happens for a reason”- UGH. If I believed that then I must have been some cruel and terrible person in some other life or something.
Listen I’m hear to tell you that pain and suffering is EVERYTHING it’s cracked up to be Pain hurts, Did I miss something when they gave me drugs to help lesson my pain? Suffering and sorrow don’t make me stronger they just make me sad, so give me a minute will you.
I would like to believe that my strength of character doe’s not come from my suffering. How about character being a result of Love and kindness, and gratitude, and empathy and good things in life?
I can’t stand it when people say “That’s to Die for!” Really people? How about saying something you Love is to Live for! So please Dr. Oz you of all people should stop using that statement, UGH!
Life is what happens to you, how you respond to it is your choice.
So no, if I can’t beat “them” I will not Join “them” how about I’ll let “them” go Their way and I’ll Go mine…….Ute Oh Indy, was that a platitude?
