    Not Really A Positive

    I love people who express positive approach in their dealing and decisions. But sometimes overly positive people tend to be arrogant, assertive. And I get easily annoyed, noticing their over confidence shows lack of sensitivity towards what is genuinely called wholesome...

    positive people are only people

    who refuse to see the world for what it is really like and they therefore refuse to see all those who are suffering

    What's So Great?

    I am in no way saying that I am a totally negative person, but but as much as life may be one big bowl of cherries,  there is more pitts than fruit, it seems, so what is there too be so positive abou, all the time?

    Isn't There a Limit?

    It's one thing to be optimistic about things and thinking positively about outcomes, but to be SO high on the positive end of the polar scale that you sound ridiculously stupid about what is happening or what is going to happen is irritating as all Hell.  Isn't it...

    My Friend Annoys Me With His Positive Attitude

    It was so annoying talking to my friend today, well, almost every time I talked to him. He has nothing negative to say about anything, if I mentioned something I don't like he would just put up some good word and tell me to look at the better side. It is true that we need some...

    If people wanna be constantly happy then

    that is fine for them but don't try to force it on me. If I don't want to smile or feel happy don't try to tell me there is so much good in my life and that I should be happy. If I find something to smile about or to be happy about then I will be happy about it. I have suffered...

    It's Crazy

     Being positive is a good thing, don't get me wrong. But when you're so positive over things that it doesn't even matter, then I just want to punch your lights out. I went to high school with a girl who was like that and I just didn't understand if she did it for the...

    I Am Confused

    Why does it bother those here when someone else is positive and happy?  I do not understand.  Each of us was given a life to live and the means to live it happily.  If someone wants to laugh all their life that is their right.  Then there are people who...

    Happy Thoughts....

    My ten year old step sister is way, over the top too overly postive. I know that she is ten and all, but seriously... Why is she so happy? I hate that little thing about her. It annoys me soooo much. We have to share a room, so I am stuck with perkiness for six more years...

    Positive Sayings -- Grrrr

    Ok - I know that they are for the best. But when you are really down, and blue, and some chipper little girl bops in and tells you all these positive sayings ... when you know they have never had a true love yet, never lost anything yet, never lived yet. I just want...

    There Is Nothing Wrong With Admiting Something Is Crap, Once In A While.

    Hi, For a while there I wondered if I'm not seeing the light enough, or is the person I'm with I'm dating someone who is overly positive about things sometimes, almost to the point of being campy. It is annoying at times. If the situation at hand is ******, then just admit...

    They Don't Get It

    My life is ******. People who are positive haven't put themselves out there enough, haven't taken enough risks to put themselves in a position to be screwed over by people. I don't dislike the fact that they're positive. I dislike the fact that they're in lala land and oblivious...

    Overly positive people raises my hopes

    and i hate it! Sometimes we need to have this negative side so when everything else fails, we are a bit prepared for it. Positive people are the idealistic ones. Realistic is far way better than idealistic!
