Names Of Things

I wish people would say “hard” or “difficult” instead of “challenging.”

It’s impossible to tell what someone means when they say something is “challenging.” Eight times out of ten, “challenging” means, “I am trying to put a positive spin on something which is tearing me apart,” or, “I am too proud to say just how vexing I find the world.”
