10 Things People Who Are ALWAYS Right Know To Be True

Trust me, I'm always right.

Everyone who knows me has probably already rolled their eyes after reading the title of this article. I'm sorry, I can't help it! If you are like me and feel like you are always right, you know that this gift comes with some eye-rolling from friends and family.

I don't blame them though. It's hard knowing that someone else is always right and almost always has the answer to any solution. I like to view this as a superpower. With this power comes great responsibility because you will start to build a reputation. Hopefully, the reputation is not that you are cocky and won't shut up about how brilliant you are (because who wants to be that person?), but that you are the person that others look to when they need help. Even though you don't want to be super conceited, it is nice to be appreciated for your special talent every once in a while.

1. Having to keep your mouth shut when you are right, again

There's only so many times you can say, "I told you so" before people start to get a little annoyed with you, so at this point, you've learned to just stay quiet and smile a little to yourself.

2. The secret thrill you get from hearing, “OK, I guess you were right”

Sometimes you may act humble and shrug, and other times you smugly smile and say, "yes, I know". It never gets old to hear someone tell you that you're right.

3. Being questioned so many times if you’re right that you start to question yourself

People always ask you if you're 10000% sure that you're right, and even though your record definitely proves that you probably are, there are times that you doubt yourself. Don't be afraid to stick to your gut!

4. Your closest friends come to you for advice because they know your track record

You are the go-to for getting advice because your friends know that you will have the answer or at least an opinion that will give them insight on what they need help on.

5. Resisting the urge to list off all the times you’ve been right when people doubt you

Let's face it, you have a pretty great track record with being right, and you can probably name a dozen times you've been right off the top of your head when people question your abilities.

6. Trying not to sound overconfident, but also knowing the truth

Even when you are so positive that you are right, you still know that you don't want everyone to roll their eyes when you say how right you always are. Instead, you probably just stay quiet and wait for your prediction to play out. It's like watching your own movie.

7. Avoiding group projects at all costs

I don't know many people that love group projects, but people who are always right especially dread them. How are you supposed to express to strangers that you're kind of a genius without sounding arrogant? It's not really possible.

8. Learning when you’re crossing a line with adults

No one wants to be told they're wrong, but adults especially want to be right. It's not always easy trying to express to your parents that you just know you're right when they have more life experience, but you still know to trust your gut. Sorry, mom and dad!

9. Impressing everyone with your knowledge on the most random things

Trivia games are your favorite because somehow, over the years you have managed to collect the most random facts. How do I know that bananas are curved because they grow towards the sun? I don't know! I just know that I'm right.

10. Facing reality when, for once, you’re not right

Unfortunately, reality hits you every once in a while when you are actually wrong. Your instinct is probably to go into denial mode, but the best way to move on is to accept that you were wrong and move on so you can continue being right.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.
