Does anyone else get frustrated with or bitter about or turned off by the whole "When God closes a door, He opens a window"? Or even just a slightly more secular "When one door closes, another one opens." This phrase really gets to me because it's not really true and I no longer believe in an interventionist God. or ?


@Vaashtii it rubs me the wrong way too. I’m fine when someone uses it to describe their own experience, but when it’s applied to anyone else’s? It can feel to me like either a play to minimize someone’s suffering or a sign that they’re uncomfortable around it.
