Most life coaches and gurus will tell you that life's ultimate power lies in the word.... "NO!" Sometimes saying no, speaking the truth -no matter how difficult- and not backing down will save the most misery and heartache. And when the dust settles it's imperative for us to stand our ground and not be sorry. Not if you weren't in the wrong. Demi sings it best.... "Baby I'm Sorry, I'm not Sorry!"

Redditor u/MrMazme was wondering what things in life some people will not back down about by asking.... What are you not sorry about?



Watch your Step!

In Elementary School, a kid named Patrick was my bully and he'd do crap like "accidentally" bump into me and spill my lunch and step on the backs of my shoes. So one day, he was coming out of the cafeteria and I stuck my leg out and watched him trip face forward into the ground. We both got sent to the Principal's Office, and he got whatever the Elementary School version of an In-School Suspension was for his repetitive bullying while I got a slap on the wrist. Absolutely not sorry. HallownestSurvivor

Trim the Fat.... 

Cutting out my dad's side of the family from my life.

They made my life a living hell while I was growing up. I was the youngest of the cousins so I would regularly get beat up or locked in rooms (my dad worked nights). They would smash furniture and TVs then blame me. As a young adult all they did was cause more drama by still break things in my dad's apartment, or try to start physical fights.

I've had so many fist fights with my cousin from defending my property to protecting my cat (no one messes with my kitty). Once I moved out of my dad's I cut all contact with them. I maybe see them once a year when my dad tricks me into seeing them (he has the mentality of always forgive family). They know nothing of my adult life and I know nothing of theirs and I'm going to keep it that way. sk8erguysk8er

Now you see me... 

Sneaking pictures of my aunt into her fathers funeral slideshow behind her sisters back. The two never got along and one sister was in charge of the funeral. She was adamant about leaving out any photo with her sister in it. My aunt (the victim in this case) was very close with her father. So I lied to my other aunt that the slideshow was done and I downloaded a secret folder of pictures onto the slideshow.

She's so bad with technology that she didn't notice. Not sorry. My other aunt gave me a teary hug after the funeral and thanked me, she knew I had been the one to slip them in. She died last month of a sudden aneurism. I'd do it again, even if my other aunt never talked to me again. I sure miss her. batdog15

ME First! 

I'm not sorry for focusing on me and my needs. I used to be so concerned with taking care of all my friends and family to the point that I was I was sacrificing my needs for a lot of people who would not do the same for me. I've learned to cut toxic people out of my life and focus on my true close friends and family rather than trying to care for everyone. Being liked by everyone used to be so important to me and honestly it's so exhausting. I'm not sorry if people don't like me anymore. It's impossible to make everyone happy. As long as you're not being a complete @sshole, you need to take your needs into consideration as well. michmichmich777

Do What I Must! 

Making a post on Facebook telling everyone of my friends and family that they are scum if they are taking their kids around not only a convicted child molester, but continuing to allow him around their kids after he molested me for 5 years.

I caused a huge rift in my family but I'm still not sorry cause I'm not the dumba** allowing my kids to be molested. It's sad I have to air the dirty laundry but I'd rather protect the kids and maybe cause my cousins to think then not say anything and let it happen to their babies. WhitestTrash

Define "Right?"

My aunt was about to get married to this one rich scumbag who apparently treated her "right." My brother and I did some investigating over the fact that he had lots and I mean LOTS of female friends. A lot of stuff went on, but in the end, we found out who he was a sleeping with and is a sugardaddy to some one them. It was just three days before the actual wedding that we found out. Told our aunt about it, wedding was cancelled, aunt was upset to us as well for some reason, and we regret nothing. chimken_nuggerss

Don't Mess with the Dress! 

Not inviting my needy aunt to go wedding dress shopping with me. She's begged me already and has been dropping hints for months, but I'm not budging.

This is the one time in my life that something really is only about me, and I'm not going to deal with her drama that day.

I meant that the wedding dress shopping is only about me, not the wedding. SassiestPants

It felt like the right thing to do - no regrets. Back2Bach

Who else has a stance they ain't backing down from?

There aren't too many things that would make you go, "Man, I'd rather go to hell than be here right now. Hell has demons, torture, fire, and all the ill-prepared pizza they can shove down my throat." However, if you had to choose between these people's predicaments and hell, you'd probably be ready to have pizza for dinner.

You don't need to have children to be successful, but gender roles and societal expectations are awful. Just ask any woman you know: Chances are she's been poked and prodded and interrogated over her decision not to have children.

Dad jokes can feel like the unloved step-sibling of the comical world. "Why would we laugh at something so obvious and stupid?"

Becuase it's hilarious, that's why. Just check out the following entries below and see for yourself.

Reddit user, u/GrotiusandPufendorf, wanted to know what the funniest jokes on the planet are when they asked:

What is your favorite dad joke?

A Murder Of Cows?

Giphy

Dad: Look at that flock of cows over there.

Kids: A HERD of cows.

Dad: Of course I heard of cows, there is a flock of them right over there.

Note: pulled that joke successfully a few times, and my kids even did it to their summer camp instructor.

We Should Probably Leaf

At the park with my girls: "Dad, can we go play?"

Me: "sure, just stay away from those trees over there"

Girls: " umm...ok, why?"

Me: " I don't know...they look a little shady to me."

Stating The Obvious, But Still Hilarious

I had a terrible day yesterday. As I was walking home, a man in a wheelchair stole my camouflage jacket!

As he was wheeling away, I shouted after him, "you can hide but you can't run!"

That's Always The Point

Not a joke in the traditional sense but, when I'm at a restaurant and the waitress says "Do you wanna box for that?" I always reply with "No, but I'll wrestle you for it."

No one ever gets it but it makes me laugh. And that's the point, right?

Believing in dub stuff as a kid is par for the course. When we're children, we're just tinier humans with less life experience, right? But let's be real- some of the dumb things we believed were actually really, really dumb.

Oprah Winfrey may no longer be doling out free cars by the dozens like she did on her long-running day time talk show.

But that doesn't mean her generosity is history.
