    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...

    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 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!

    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...

    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...

    However...

    I am annnoyed by overly positive people, however I'm also annoyed by overly negative people. I prefer people who have a balance; an awareness that there are good things and bad things, and you can't expect one or the other constantly. People who only expect the good or only...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Not only am I annoyed by overly positive people, I absolutely loathe them! I hate people you look at the world as a good place, because it's not! The world is a cold dark place which shows no mercy to those who are less fortunate. So, my words to those who are overly positive is...

    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...

    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...

    Just Shut Up Already and Be Miserable For Once

    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...
