hey this is pretty cool and interesting. so you don’t like it when people say: it impacted me …? or, someone impacted me …?
Maybe because it’s passive voice?
I think a lot of my literary pet peeves are self-help connected. For example:
A 'successful' person.?
Hate the word 'forgive’, unless used topically. As in, you ate my crackers, now I forgive you.
Don’t like the word 'unconditional’.
Hate the word 'loyalty’.
Oh, and when people use slang in their writing, and you can tell they didn’t grow up using it.
