Socially-expected voluntary-positivism doesn’t brush away justifiably felt anguish about the world, pursuing a life lived in a fragile cocoon of reverberated self-belief. Many who adamantly reject this assertion I find to be those who are also most likely to defiantly dismiss the evidence of the serious social and environmental issues of our age, even when you thrust them in their face. This isn’t a stance for the right to be miserable for the sake of it!; it’s an anger at a society that basically picks on people who are justifiably unhappy about the state of the world, by telling them that it’s something to do with their state of mind, basically telling them that they’re unwell, not the world.
Short rant over; now back to bigger things (hopefully).
