Being told that everything happens for a reason.
Why do we hate hearing this? 1)It’s hard to prove at the time. 2) Even if everything does happen for a reason, you can barely figure out how to work your stove. There’s no way you’re going to know what that reason is. 3) It’s still not that helpful, and when uttered after a breakup, only leads to more over analyzing. Which no one ever needs.

Seriously, who came up with this? Clearly not a single person. Where does a mistletoe even grow?
