lion yelling mad scream

Dr. Tanya continues her #5Things series by asking for our most annoying clichés. What a great topic! See if you can spot my theme.

1. Look on the bright side.

2. Everything happens for a reason.

3. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

4. Count your blessings.

And the worst one of all?

5. Smile and the world smiles with you!

  4. Sure there’s a theme. These are all horrible things said by well meaning people to someone sharing a serious piece of news. As in “my husband is having an affair ” or”my court case is on Monday” Or “I’ve got cancer.”
