Fed Up People Reveal What Everyone Else Takes Too Seriously

Ok y'all sit down, take a breath and slow your roll. THAT should be our life mantra! In this day and age none of us can seem to escape the finite severity of life we all seem to be imposing on one another and ourselves. It feels like nobody has a sense of humor anymore. And nobody even feels like know how to have a good time. Everything little thing is so damn serious. As i write this I realize... my words are so damn serious! Or is it passion?

Redditor _u/rachid-web asked the world What do people take entirely too seriously? How many hours have you got for reading today?

EVERYBODY HAS DONE IT...

The cringy or awful things they did when they were teenagers. Short of something truly obscene people are way too hard on themselves.

EVERYBODY BE CRAY!!
EVERYBODY BE CRAY!!

I read this a few years ago, and it's stuck with me, so I'll share it here. Credit to u/soomuchcoffee for initially writing it.

"The crappy truth is that the upper, say, 5% of every fanbase is insufferable. Basically without variance. There's a guy out there that has like, broccoli t-shirts, broccoli posters, he has a broccoli key chain. And if you're like "Dude, I love broccoli too" he'd say you had no idea what you were talking about. You like broccolini? What about broccoli rabe? I bet you've never even SEEN Chinese broccoli! I eat broccoli with every meal, I can make it 213 different ways, I have a broccoli garden in my back yard.

That's the upper 5% of every interest group. I have no idea why people do this, or how they've convinced themselves this suffices for an identity, but that seems to be the idea.

So, virtually everything has people out there that take it too seriously.

SING OUT!!!

Music. You don't have to know the band's member history and their birthdays and medical history to be a fan, that's creepy! Who's to say who is a "real fan" or a "poser?"

You don't have to like EVERY song. If you like their music, cool. If you only like a few songs, cool. If you only use the chorus of their most popular song as a ringtone, cool. And if you know the band and their members inside and out, creepy but cool.

JUST SMILE AND BREATHE!
JUST SMILE AND BREATHE!

My view is that we only have one life, and it can be mercilessly short. So you really have a choice; spend your limited time on this planet being ANGRY and OFFENDED most of the time, OR you can choose just to shrug everything off and look for the best in everything. Which do you honestly think will make you happier?

It's sounds naive, like one of those cliched "inspirational" Facebook posts, but really it's true. Try not to get upset by things you can't directly control and have the ability to laugh in the face of adversity.
