When Life Hands You Lemons...
When Life Hands You Lemons…
...and other trite bullshit we tell ourselves to get through cancer.
When the possibility of death is put in front of your face, you start to look back on your life, intentionally or not. We all do this occasionally, but when death is staring you down, one way to take it on is to reflect on all the blessings that your life has already brought you. Duhhh…I know…such a trite observation. But trite observations become trite for a reason: they are based in real human experiences that happen to many of us every day. And people lean on them in times of struggle, because their very triteness is what brings comfort: you are not alone. Others have been here before you. And they made it well enough that a saying evolved surviving that struggle. It’s what the best art does. It taps into the universal human experience and expresses it just.so. That’s right, I said it. Trite sayings are art. In their own right.
