People Divulge The Things Everyone Needs To Hear But No One Has The Guts To Say

Paddy Clarke 22 Oct 2019

Recently, one person posed Reddit the question, "What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people?" And, boy, did the internet answer.

Everyone has experienced that moment of, "I wish I could tell you exactly how I feel!" However, people are sadly very rarely honest about how they feel with others, even if something is making them feel uncomfortable.

So, through the anonymity of Reddit, people took to the comments to vent the things that they think everyone needs to hear, but no one has the guts to say! Please find below some of the most serious, the funniest, and even some of the weirdest!

1. Don't Be A D*ck


"Being an asshole isn’t quirky" — Stalins_Daddio

In my experience, people often need to remember that just because there's a prominent TV show character you like is a bit of a d*ck, doesn't mean that it translates well to real life.

5. Just Telling People No


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

This is very true. You're entitled to say no to people if you want; also, people will often not be as bothered as you think they will be in your head.

Some people really do let themselves get sucked into a job that they hate. It is never too late to change, you just need to have a little faith that you can do it! (I know this sounded like a three-cheese sandwich with extra cheese, but I really believe this is true)

This is perhaps my personal favorite, just because of the amount of times that I'm on the train and people around me will loudly play fail videos that their friends have sent them. Please God let it end!
