Except in cases of time travel, then "it is what is is" might become "it was what it should have been, but wasn't"....


It gets confusing -- that's why you should write your Congressman and demand that time travel be made illegal.

Or not.... You probably already did it last week after reading this today.

See???

RE: When it's your time, that's it
I think it's a way to view death as something natural rather than something mysterious to live in fear of your whole life.

I think you can live life not obsessing over death and at the same time be practical about it, and make sure to wear sunscreen.

As for its use in this situation, the funeral of a 22yo will make people in attendance come to grips with their mortality. So people trying to wrap their heads around it makes sense, and I think that sentiment of "when it's your time..." is a pretty reasonable one.

Huh

What do you think this means? Does it mean we should all just throw caution to the wind, not take care of ourselves, because what's the difference...when our time is up, that's it? Talking to a friend of mine over the weekend and she said the same thing...I said, what do you mean? She answered...''I believe that everyone's life has a time limit and that's it.''

What do you think?

This is sort of like a deepity. I think it is just something that people hear and repeat because they think it sounds deep. If you ask them what it means I doubt most would have a cogent answer. Another one that you hear is "it happened for a reason, even if we are not able to understand" "or God called him home". This one is especially ridiculous if the person died a tragic death. Couldn't God call someone home without having them decapitated or drowned or burned?

A silly concept, done to try and make sense of a random universe. As silly as a sky-daddy.
