Did you grow up with platitudes that don’t seem to work in everyday life? Can you recognize them as you scroll through Facebook?
A platitude is a statement, usually with a moral message, that is used so frequently that it loses it’s true meaning.
Even though my family was part of a positive spiritual community, I still grew up with several platitudes that I eventually had to unlearn.
Anytime we receive advice from others, or see an inspiring message on social media, we need to still run it through our intuition: Is this right for me? Will it help me resolve and move forward from my present circumstance?
What platitudes have you evaluated and found to work only in certain circumstances?
