We find inspiration in each other's lives. As humans, we stand by, uplift, and link with one another. Recall a time when you felt truly down or exposed. What helped you push through? Maybe it was a comforting word from a loved one. At times, certain talks are significant and their words stay with us always. It can even be unplanned, just a casual chat, yet something in it strikes you, making you realize it was exactly what you didn't know you were missing.

Words carry tremendous meaning. Something you say to someone can become their make-or-break factor. That is why communication is important whether you're a parent, friend, child, teacher, colleague or anything else. u/Some_Being_Online asked on the r/AskReddit forum for such deep things that were said to users. Here are 25 of them that you can relate to or perhaps carry with you.

1.  For the parents

"Prepare your child for the road, not the road for your child." -u/dvmdv8

2. The fact about raising children 

"When you're about to become a parent the amount of sh*t you get told is unreal. Parents can't wait to tell you 'you'll get no sleep, you'll have no life, it's all changing nappies etc' However, I was in a meeting with a guy at work, we were making small talk before the meeting and I told him I was about to become a dad expecting the usual. Instead he just went really deep but really chilled and just went "you're about to have the most amazing thing happen to you ever but never forget, they're not yours. You're just borrowing them while they need you but you need to get them ready to not need you anymore." The older my kids get the more I appreciate it."-u/Educational-Act-6602

3. Being Selfless

"Sometimes, the best way to help someone is to let them help you. You may not need their help, but it will make them feel useful.? -u/Armor_Armadillo

4. Love comes at a cost

"Grief is the price we pay for love. And it’s a bargain."-u/khmergodzeus

5. Allow people to grow

"I've always liked the quote 'Sometimes a hypocrite is just a man in the process of changing' and I think it's more important than ever in our 'cancel culture' society."-u/little-bird89

8. Loneliness is not being alone
