16 people share what they consider to be 'life's greatest lie.'


Life is a beautiful journey, but sometimes it's impossible to avoid thinking that the grind of existence is so brutal there's no logical explanation than to assume we're all living in a stunning simulation...

So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What do you consider life's greatest lie?' people were ready to debate the biggest myths, philosophies, or overall BS beliefs they refuse to follow. Credit scores are fake, right everyone?


That there is one person in the world that is perfect for you. - Spodson


“Follow your heart” as advice in general. The heart always does you dirty. - Huge-Comfort376


That you stop getting zits when you hit your 20s. It never stops. - Iamalienmarmoset


Life's greatest lie is that we can control everything. We often think that if we try hard enough or plan ahead enough, we can control the outcome of every situation. The truth is, life is unpredictable and we don't have complete control over what happens to us. We must learn to accept the things we can't control and focus on the things we can. - Pikafreeze


That being an adult is fun - BammyQ2


Looks dont matter - chicken_mike


Going to college = success. The fact that so many people go to college, get their degree, and then get a job that has nothing to do with their degree - Frobromojo


Money can't buy happiness - Thoraxe474


“Live every day like it’s your last.” DON’T DO THAT!!! - Sunny64888


Hard work = good life. - iammeanbecauseiamsad


The belief that life is fair is a lie, and it's a particularly toxic lie, because people who believe life is fair tend to believe that everything which appears like injustice must actually be secretly fair somehow, and so they rationalize injustice. - Bizarre_Protuberance


'But I still want to be friends.' No you don't. - HumpieDouglas


You must go to college, get a job, find a partner, buy a house, retire and die. That formula and the expectations that it puts on us is the basis for so much loss. All that matters is the time we have left and how often we get to spend with those that love us. - OtterLakeBC1918


That other adults have it all together. No, just no. Everyone has some part of their life that is a sh*t show. - Violentflatus


The one where your parents are infallible. You don't realize it until you get older or become a parent. They were holding it all together by the skin of their teeth just like I am. - potatoboat


That I'm the most handsome boy in the whole wide world. Wrong again mom - nthroop1
