I Am Tired of False Positivity

People that act like telemarketers but are close friends 213 People

    Lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones, and I will try to fix you...

    False positivity is like making people eat mud telling them it's chocolate. "Put away that frown, remember you're enjoying yourself." I hate that. Why can't people just show it when they feel like crap? You'll have to admit: sometimes the world is a real crappy place to...

    Balance

    Have you ever seen those people who instead of acting realistic, they always have a smile on there face, they have the white picket fence, the two story house, a spouse, two children, ect? Those people scare the hell out of me. And i'll tell you why. People who dont experience...

    Sincerity

    I'm creating a positivity zone in my life and I can't have even false positivity be a part of it. I work in a field where I meet the sick, the needy, and those in social environments so toxic that it can really drain a soul. I don't want that in my friendships. I have a choice...

    Intolerant of This, No Apologies

    PC attitudes are politely killing us all. I am disgusted that this society is so desperate for entertainment and distraction that there are 'reality shows' about the life of morbidly obese individuals. What am I supposed to enable them by dealing with their problems of being...

    Disingenuous Need Not Apply

    The last time I checked, neither of us lived in Hollywood. Neither of us have attained perfection. I'm not becoming an ascended master, are you? We did not meet over a casserole at the PTA meeting. We do have the same ethnic background, values and home town. We went to the same...

    Fakeness!

    If you feel positive by all means express that, if you don't but are using positivity help you get through a hardship I understand that too. Yet I have noticed that many I think in correlation to the expectations in society to "keep it fake" are falsely stating and...

    Where Is Our Sense of Outrage ?

      I am writing this tonight because I am saddened to see how in today´s society our sense of outrage has gone the way of the Dinosaurs. Nowadays it is quite common for people to look the other way in a futile attempt to ignore  the obvious. They are too busy to...

    Just Say What You Mean

    If you say something raw, honest, truthful don't ruin it by apologizing afterward. If you are going to shred someone don't say "Bless their heart," afterward. If you have something to say, just say it, don't get all mealy-mouthed about it. Political correctness has gone...

    At Least Let Me Finish My Sentence.

    Another phone call to chat about the weather. Answering these calls is similar to hearing a telemarketer. Is this a joke? What value can I find in a friendship this shallow? There's not much here to pursue. I'm not heard or understood and there's no attempt to try relating...

    When I do that I feel even worse about myself and the world around me. I want to be those individuals that are always happy. Always smiling about nothing lol. It may sound silly. But I want to be that happy. Even when pessimism and negativity comes my way. One day I'll get there...

    I think I've written some stuff under other headings on EP that belong in this group. I am weary of people who are single serving friends, who can only communicate in sound bytes and platitudes. "It's all going to work out in the end!" Ya know what? Maybe NOT. I think...

    With someone in particular on my mind, I ask these questions aloud: What the **** is your problem? Why can't you just say what you feel? Why must it be a prepackaged response? A soundbyte is not acceptable, I expect you to reply to my direct question. I expect you to compile a...

    I sometimes amaze myself, I can take a lot of crap and smile and still be positive! I don't feel positive, but I talk that way. I should control my tongue!

    I Smile Though My Heart Is Aching

    yeah just like the lyrics from a song. I think smiling is one of visible positive reactions. It's like telling others that you're alright and have nothing to worry about because i can handle everything. You force yourself to smile though you're bleeding inside. Because i felt...

    Positivity Is Not On This Planet...

    What I don't get is when people say "Everyone's a winner!" The truth is: No one wins. We are born with nothing, we die with nothing. Every one of us. Bottom line. The only winner is "The Creator"/ God.

    Things are changing.  Crumbling, I think, all around.  It isn’t just the economy or politics, the colds and flu, it’s me too.  Plates I’ve left spinning precariously, with merely a quick flick of the stick to keep them balanced, are teetering, ready to plunge to the...

    Sooo Tired

    I always put on a happy face when I see old friends or when I'm around the general public, and I'm sick of it. I've decided to just feel what I feel when I feel it, and if others don't like it, well they can go away. I'm tired of wearing a mask all the time.
