15 People Share the Things That They Don’t Think Are As Bad As People Say They Are
Have you ever heard someone complain about something and wonder why they’re making such a big deal out of something so minor? We probably all have, but the problem is that what’s a big deal to one person is minor to someone else but not everyone else.
There are certain things in life that people in general complain about more than they probably should. Reddit user SayLittleDoMuch wanted to hear about some examples and posed the question, “What is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be?”
Scroll down for some great examples of things that really aren’t that bad when put in perspective.
Say You’re Sorry

Owning your mistakes. Not even the big ones, the smaller ones.
Writing a Will
Writing a will. People are weird about thinking about their death or having conversations about what they should do. Have the conversation. I assure you, we all die, and dying intestate or without a personal directive makes it way more difficult for your family
Introverts and Extroverts Probably Disagree Here
Spending time alone with yourself. You don’t always have to be around people, in fact it’s bad not to spend time alone
Being in a long committed relationship.People always make it sound so black and white, a little communication can take you far.
Jury duty. It was actually quite interesting to get an inside look at being on a jury.

Telling people something they don’t want to hear and not being apologetic about it.
Being nice to other people.
Older and Wiser
Turning 30.For years it was made out to be some grim line in the sand, where all who cross it are forsaken… banished forever from the utopia of your 20s. When I got to 30, I was pleasantly surprised to be looking ahead at some years that looked pretty promising. With many less enjoyable aspects of my teens+twenties in the rear view mirror.
More Fear Than Pain
Root canals.They’re not fun, but if go to someone who knows what they’re doing, there’s no real pain. The fear leading up to it was much worse than anything that actually happened.
Don’t Look at the Needle
Getting a vaccine. People overthink/overreact the needle pain which is never as bad as the sting.
This Is Timely
Staying home. I really like being at home, I feel bad for those who find it a hardship or boring.
Autism. Sure there are people with low-function autism but many people with autism (me, for example) look perfectly normal on the outside, aside from some social awkwardness. Also Asperger’s, which I have and is on the Autism spectrum, isn’t a 100% illness. It’s more of a tradeoff; people see the social awkwardness and the difficulty grasping “grey areas” as opposed to black and white thinking as a bad thing but what we lack in those areas is more than made up for academically. I’m really good with math and science and am pursuing a degree in aerospace engineering since that’s what I’m really good at.
Being dumped by textSure it’s lazier than saying it to my face, but I’ve been broken up with three times by text, and it’s not nice, but not worthy of drama queen screaming
Is That True?
Telling the truth. It feels so good to have a clear conscience in every situation.
Changing a baby’s diaper. Really, you just kind of do it and get used to it. No big deal.
