Question of the day.

What quote or saying do people spout but is complete BS?

In my opinion, such saying, or maybe proverb, or whatever it is, is that there are no irreplaceable people. I don’t actually know if there’s something like this or any equivalent of this in English, but we use it in Polish. And that’s simply not true, I think. Because in my opinion everyone is different, so everyone is irreplaceable. I can’t think of a person who would replace my Mum for me and for my whole family. Misha is not a human, but seems like pets are irreplaceable either, because I don’t think any cat could replace Misha for me. Sure, I could have another cat or whichever pet if I wanted after him, but it wouldn’t replace him. It wouldn’t be like him. I could accept that my Mum passed away or that Misha passed away, I could find other beings to love and care about and who will love and care about me, but I’d still feel lack of that one who passed away. What do you think? And what saying or quote would you choose? 🙂

  1. Nobody could ever replace my beautiful golden retriever who passed away a couple of years ago. I think when people use this expression it makes more sense in a job – so if you leave they will just get someone else, so you shouldn’t let the job take over your life because you won’t be thanked for it! You’ll just be replaced if you go!
    The one I don’t like is “it was meant to be” like that makes it ok, even when bad things happen…

    1. Pets just can’t be replaceable. Yeah, in work, especially in big corporations, it makes sense. I agree, “it was meant to be” often sounds like giving up for me. It was meant to be, so there’s no point in changing it. You can’t change it even, because it has to be so.
