TWISTED CLICHÉS

Terms that aren't endearment
  1. You are a sight for sore eyes
    Ouch? Sometimes I tell my sister she's a sight for eye sores. At least it's straightforward
  2. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree
    Okay but what if I disagree fundamentally with my tree.
  3. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    I want to personally thank Kelly Clarkson for her contribution to music but what doesn't kill you sometimes leaves you nearly dead and I think it's important to acknowledge that struggle
  4. There's no time like the present
    Except for the future? Just cause you can't do something right now doesn't mean you have to give up on it.
  5. Better safe than sorry
    Life isn't safe. My best lessons have come from being sorry
  6. It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
    Just because it fits your story doesn't mean it is universal truth and fits everyone's story. I survived a lot of things but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have been better without having to go through them.
