That's a lot of words to exclude from your vocabulary.

You probably do to an extent, right?

"I'll try to...."

What is wrong with just saying no or that you do not want to do something?

Re: Terms you find annoying

Another one:

"I''ll pray for you/ some other person/ some situation/ whatever".

I understand some folks may believe this actually helps. Maybe they are trying to be nice or are programmed to say it. I try not to be an "asshole" atheist. Kind of like "bless you" if someone sneezes.

But it seems more like they want to get credit for caring or doing something but actually doing nothing.  Praying is not going to pay someone's late rent, get them a job, make any buddies, cure any addictions, get them out of legal hot water, make someone sick better, or improve anyone's shitty relationships. Or worse, using someone's temporary misfortune to push some parroted belief system that does not apply at all and may actually make things worse.

I would rather people say, "Man, that sucks - good luck" than try to get stealth credit or a "I'm involved and caring" badge.

it's time to stop. That's not a term I find annoying. Just stop it

I don't even say bless you and I'm not an atheist. I just think it's silly I have to acknowledge your sneeze.

Its subjectivity and the pretentious way in which it is used.

Re: Terms you find annoying

But pretentiousness has little to do with happiness.

Unless it is just a short comfort boost because someone has it better than someone else, at least for a time. Fuck those people, though. If you find yourself around such folks, either move away and find new folks far from them or find out if you have some situation.

Happiness is fleeting, though. Contentment, though, is a very good thing as long as you do not get lazy with it.

Happiness or contentment is each persons responsibility, not others.
