5 Things Our Parents Said That Finally Makes Sense

We’ve spent years of our lives – convinced that our parents spoke their own language and lived in their own world. We refused to accept that the phrases they told us were another far fetch attempt to prove us wrong and make us feel stupid.

What saying did your parents use the most?
Let me know in the comments!

Adulthood comes with A LOT of realizations; meaning we’ve finally learned the reality of our parents once irritating sayings. They were telling the truth, after all.

They were simply being honest.

1. Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk

There are a lot of things in life to worry about. A lot of things that can keep you up at night; but you will never experience sanity if you dwell on the small stuff. The fixable problems. The puddle of milk that needs nothing more than a paper towel to clean up.

2. Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees

We always laughed – commenting at our literal interpretation of this saying, but maybe now we appreciate the value of a dollar. Maybe now we understand that our reward is no longer a pat on the back. Our reward must be worked for in order to survive. There’s a lot of character in those who realize that money has more value than the paper it’s made from.

3. We’ll Cross That Bridge When We Come To It

No one knows what tomorrow has to offer – yet we love to dwell on the unknown; leaving us clueless about right now. We have to stop thinking ahead and rushing through life. We have to slow down enough to realize that every path leaders to another, so keep one foot ahead of the other and savor the dirt beneath each one.

4. Pretty Isn’t A Look. It’s An Outlook

Possibly one of the hardest things to understand [and some of us never will] is that beauty truly is skin deep. Our parents saw us at our essence. They saw the smiles we let slip through our lips. The excitement in our eyes when we saw something we liked, and the kind of words we would say to others when we couldn’t even say them to ourselves.

Our parents always knew that pretty isn’t a look – it’s an outlook.

5. If Your Friends Jumped Off A Bridge – Would You?

Peer pressure comes in ways you’ve never imagined. It’s more than a joint in front of your face or a tempting text to sneak out. We live in comparison. Always looking at someone else’s’ life. Always wanting what we don’t have. No differently – as we grow up – society seems to become the friend we’re willing to jump off the bridge for.
