What people say vs what they actually mean.

So, we all have been in situations where we have had conversations with people we don’t like and also with people who don’t like us. But, yeah, of course, we have to be nice to everyone. So, we say something that can be used as a conversation filler and will sound nice. So, here in this blog post, I have written what people say vs what they actually mean.

I hope you enjoy reading this post. Also, don’t forget to share some phrases that you use to people but don’t actually mean. I know there definitely will be some. So, do tell me (I will also try using them).

So, without wasting more time let’s begin.

1. I am very busy right now and will call you few minutes later.

Reality check: I am so freaking tired of listening to your voice. Dude, please give me rest, and don’t dare expect a call from me later.

2. How are you? I missed you so much, dear.

Reality check: I am really fine with or without you. Yeah, my life will really go on without you. That was just a rhetorical thing to say.

3. Good Luck. I really hope the best for you.

Reality check: I am kind of jealous and really hope that you don’t do well.


4. It was so nice to meet you.

Reality Check: I will forget your name the moment you leave. Yes, I will. I really keep meeting random people and really my brain can’t remember any more names.

5. Follow your passion

Reality Check: Oh, please. Just get a 9 to 5 job.


Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed reading this post on what people say vs what they actually mean and it bought a little smile on your face. Do tell me if it did.

I love this post, you’re so right on these ;D

Number 4 is so me! I forget people I’ve met before ALL the time.

Very funny, I am sure we have all said one of these things at least once x

This made me laugh as I can relate to so many of them! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

Insightful and interesting thank you

Ha! These are definitely true sometimes. I think people who really care about you mean them most of the time though.

Am always upfront about this to people’s and that had made me lose friend,

19th June 2020 at 6:20 pm

So accurate on so many levels!

Totally guilty for item # 1. But I really mean it when i say I missed you πŸ’•

Definitely number 4 for me! 🀣

23rd August 2020 at 6:34 pm

We are all guilty of some of these, I suspect. Certainly #4 for me (often multiple times per week!)

How about β€œLet me know how I can help you.” Which really means, β€œYou can ask me for help, but I’m going to be busy.”

23rd August 2020 at 6:40 pm

This was so spot on! Thank you for sharing.

23rd August 2020 at 11:17 pm

I think I must have done all of these at some point, haha!
