That’s (Not) Just the Way It Is

That’s just the way s/he is.

This [organization, group, charity, etc] has always operated like that. You’ll get used to it.

Time for another rant. 😉

Well, that’s just the way it is isn’t an excuse. It isn’t even a real answer.

And that’s just the way it is so easily slouches into I can’t do anything do change it. Why bother trying? 

No, we can’t wave a magic wand and change how other people behave or certain circumstances in life – chronic health problems, the fact that autumn is slowly slipping into winter. Some things are beyond anyone’s control.

But we can change how we react to them and in certain situations we can reduce the amount of time and energy they demand from our lives.

So no, whatever you’re thinking of that’s not just the way it is.
