Is it REALLY what it is?

It is what it is?

Is it?

Is what you are talking about really what it is?  Is it unchangeable?  Can it not improve?  Will it not morph into something else?

Can you help it change?  Can you assist in some way?

To me, this IT IS WHAT IT IS statement means you have given up.  Throw your hands up in the air like ya just don’t care, because with this statement, that is what you mean.  It is what it is and you can’t do anything about it.

I think this statement is used way too much.  If it is used CORRECTLY, than whatever you are talking about is a constant, unchanging thing.  It’s something you can’t budge, you can’t help, you can’t make move no matter what you do. It is unchanging. It’s a “given.”

So, an apple …it is what it is.  A cat, dog, a kite, the sky, my right shoe… YEP!  Those things can be put in that category.   The IT IS WHAT IT IS category!

People… can change.  Places… can change.  Attitudes, facial expressions, a bad day…

ARE NOT things that you can use that “It is what it is.” statement on.

If you use –it is what it is– on those things, you are saying they can’t change…

they can’t be helped…

you can’t do anything about them.

And I just don’t think that is true.  That is my opinion.  I suppose it could change, but for now…

IT IS WHAT IT IS.
