I see these kinds of little motivational signs and posters all over the place. They kill me. I suppose they’re supposed to make you feel better about the bad stuff going on in your life, but half the time they don’t even make sense. The first part about the arrow? Ok, I am with you. But the second part saying that because that’s how arrows work, that’s how your life will work? No. I am not an arrow. Lives are not arrows. There is actually no correlation between lives and arrows. “So” is not remotely the right word here. I supposed you could fix it a bit with a “life is like an arrow” and a “sometimes” added in there. But really, some people have rough lives. Difficulties do drag them back constantly and it’s got nothing to do with any launch. If I was going through a rough time and someone said this to me, I would not feel better; I would just think they were stupid.
