What does BYTM stand for?

Better you than me

When someone uses BYTM, they’re basically saying, “I’m glad that didn’t happen to me!” It’s often used by people who are a bit self-centered, and they typically use it after you’ve told them about something difficult or challenging that you’re dealing with.

It’s not a very nice thing to say, so it’s better to avoid using BYTM. If you want to respond to someone’s hard luck story, there are better options like TTB, IFYP, or GL.

Remember, slang like BYTM can come across as insensitive, so think twice before using it. Be supportive and use positive acronyms instead when someone shares a tough situation with you.
