A sad truth comes to accept that life is inherently unpredictable and often unfair. No matter how much we plan, work hard, or hope for the best, we can still encounter setbacks, challenges, and heartaches. A user asked on a forum, “What’s a sad truth you’ve come to accept?”
Here are some responses he got!
LOVE CAN DESTROY LIFE AS IT BRIGHTEN
“Love can destroy your life just as much as it can brighten your life. You can go from waking up to the love of your life to waking up to the despair that they’re gone.”
HELP BEYOND REACH
“You can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped.”
“You can deeply love/care for someone and still be furious with their actions and unable to help them.”
LIFE IS UNFAIR
“You can do everything right and still lose. I have Stage 3 cancer; I never drank, smoked, did drugs, ate healthy foods, exercised daily, was always a very ‘clean living’ person, and here I am.”
“Getting older, rusty, no longer able to do things I could when I was younger due to aging.”
“I’m 50 years old and still have trouble with the adult classification. But as I learned when I passed through Casino security last year without having to show ID, the grays give me away, and it’s real, it’s horrible, but I’m getting old for real.”
WIFE NEVER COMING BACK
“My wife of 48 yrs has passed away, and she is Never coming back. And it about kills me. I hope that is not too serious.”
WORKING HARD DOESN’T MEAN EQUAL SUCCESS
“I’m so sick of the myth that working hard will make you succeed. I’ve worked my butt off my whole life and got a good education, but I still struggle financially. Meanwhile, I see lazy, stupid people with lots of money who waste it on stupid things.”
FROM REMEMBERED TO FORGOTTEN
“Most of us, and among them myself, will be forgotten, your children will remember you, your grandchildren might as well, your great grandchildren will maybe hear a story and see a picture of you, the generation after that might even still know your name, the one after that won’t, and outside of your family no one will know or remember your name, some researcher might stumble upon it one day, but even he/she won’t remember it. And it will be as if you had never existed.”
LOSING LOVED ONE
“Since my brother died, no matter what happiness comes in my life, there will always be a hint of sadness that he’s not here to share it with.”
“I was 21 when my brother died in a motorcycle accident at 28. Everyone who ever knew him wanted him; he had that light. It devastated our family, and the family dynamic was never the same.”
CAN’T TRUST ANYONE
“You really can’t trust anyone. Maybe immediate (close) family and your partner. But sometimes, not even then. When the person you thought would never betray you betrays you, you discover you cannot trust anyone.”
HOMELESS FOR SEVERAL YEARS
“That my wife and I will most likely remain homeless for the next 30-40 years of our lives. Already been ten years of living it. Working and never making ends meet. Always a health issue, car problems, thefts, etc. Then you have the stigmas that come with it: I must be crazy or on drugs to be homeless. When I have health issues, and rents in Massachusetts are too high, I cannot just move away because of my health issues and the medical care I get here. It strains us constantly, and my wife has stuck with me through this.”
POOR JUSTICE SYSTEM
“The justice system in the US is not so good, and nobody is looking out for you. If a cop, judge, DA, anyone decides they wanna screw up your entire life, they can, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
LESSON OF UNWANTED LOVE AND CARE
“I’ve come to accept a sad truth in my life, one that I believe many of us can relate to in one way or another. It’s the realization that no matter how much you care for someone, how much love you pour into them, how willing you are to accept their flaws and triumphs if they don’t want to be with you, none of it matters.”
