If only

You know what the word that I hate the most is? ...if

"If only you would have said so."

"If only you had come earlier."

"If only you had picked it up."

"If only you had chosen the other one."

"If only you didn't go."

"If only you could make it right."

"If only you had waited for me.”

"If only you had told me."

“If only you would understand.”

“If only you didn’t scream at me.”

“If only you had been easier to live with.”

'If' holds such a negative connotation. It reminds you of something you could have done, but didn't do. Why do people want to remind others of what they DIDN'T do? Unless by saying it you can turn back time and we can redo things, then just keep your mouth shut and thoughts to yourself. If someone has made a mistake or make the wrong choice, help the person live with it. Because in life it is simply impossible to go back and do it all again. It's impossible. So the best way to handle it is to take everything in stride and move on.

"If only others would understand this."
