Ignorant people 'trying' to help?

Home More advice General Knowledge

Often when people try to cheer me up they just look ignorant. Like when I told my mum about how I had a fight with some people in school and they called me names she said “Well don't listen and be happy.”. slow clap. Yes, because that fixes everything. Now that you've told me that, I'll definitely be happy and not care about being completely alone. Yes, thank you. Or when I was sad once because I was going through a family crisis and someone said “Try not to be sad.”. slow fcking clap*. It fixes everything; now I won't be sad any more because you've told me not to be. I know these types of people try to be helpful but they just turn out to be ignorant. Anyone else had something similar happen to them?
