R69, don't forget "swap out", commonly used by cooks: "If you don't like walnuts, you can swap out pecans".

Which brings me to "substitute" being misused at least 99% of the time: "I'm allergic to cranberries, so I substitute them for blueberries"; "The cheese in the recipe was too expensive so I substituted it for a combination of cheeses I had on hand"; etc. The word is mutating into something that means the opposite of what the writer intends to say.

"Living my truth" - insinuates that "your" truth isn't the actual truth. Otherwise, you'd just say "THE truth".

"Living my best life" - who are you trying to convince when you say this? Yourself?

"Haters gonna hate" - you're not a girl and you probably haven't been a teenager in a lot of fucking years. Stop it.

by Anonymousreply 222Last Monday at 7:09 PM

R222, "my truth" sounds like "alternative facts" (espoused by that anorexic blonde in Trumpy's administration whose name I mercifully can't remember).

by Anonymousreply 223Last Tuesday at 3:51 AM

All the "my truth", "my lived experience" type expressions are bullshit peddled by SJWs and people like Harpo. I even had an argument about it with a journalist acquaintance who said something about how her responsibility was to report "the victim's truth" in stories about rape or sexual harassment allegations. She is not concerned about reporting whatever facts can be ascertained, only about taking sides and reporting her favored side's "truth". Unprofessional nonsense.
