    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...

    Overly Positive People Drive Me Nuts!!!!!!!!

    I have a friend who has a friend who is overly positive.  Almost to the point you want to puke.  I really like my friend and have a hard time putting up with her friend.  Any help out there?

    Sheltered People

    People that are positive all the time HAVE NEVER expereienced REAL life there are times to be positive and a time to be negative. Just tell them to go and live in the real world then see if they come back SOOOO Positive.

    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...

    What are you hiding? Such a smiling depressive you are! People like you are definitely overcompensating! You say that everything is good and well, pretending that everything is perfect giving people false hopes and making fraudulent promises... WTF I swear you want to force...

    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...

    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...

    So many of the posts in this group make

    so much sense. Look, I'm not down on all positive people or positive thinking in general. It's the ones who use simplistic language and regurgitate 'positive' quotes. Some of them at best are naive with their head in the clouds, and at worst, they're full of themselves...

    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...

    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!

    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...
