There are literally tons of misconceptions of life. I have really thought long and hard about certain things. I have come to the realization that many things that I am told are inaccurate or just plain not true.
For instance I have much more complicated ones, but I can start with an easy one: I am right handed.
I was told that I am a righty, and any time I ever thought about going to do anything with my left hand, it was either too hard, or a coach told me to stop messing around. I never realized my left hand sucked, only because I never used it.
It is a work in progress, but my left hand is really becoming a great asset. I can do many more things with my left hand. Something I wish I would have done when I was younger.
What is 1 misconception that you have come to find out was inaccurate?

How about "the government cares about you", for a starter
How about "you have to use soap to be healthy" for the next one?
Actually this one corresponds to my observations. In fact when I stopped shaving every day my hair seemed to become thinner, at least they are softer. And grow much slower
