    If you don't like this story,

    you can stop reading it. Once at a church that I had started to attend, I mentioned to one of the women that I was going through workplace harassment. She said she would get another woman to pray for me. That other woman said some little cliche about leaving me in God's hands...

    I hate robotic pleasantries

    that app developers insist on adding on. "Oh we missed you while you were busy living your real life for the past 2 hours!" *shaking head with a sigh...*

    Sometimes I Want To Take All The Positive Thinking and Self-Help Books...

    and burn them in a huge bonfire!  Most of them are just garbage fit for kindling lol. Seriously, though, I'm sick of the cookie cutter way they look at things. As if the writer thinks they know you personally when they don't.   I'm sick of the way people mindlessly parrot all...

    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...

    There is a regular customer at my workplace,

    who is always on the verge of tears. Even though I have to fight back tears every time I see her, I'd rather see her than some of the fake positive people.

    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...

    Smell The Coffee

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Where Is Our Sense of Outrage ?

    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...

    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.

    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!

    Don't ask people how they are doing,

    or how their day/night is going, if you really don't want to know. It;s a silly deceptive game. And if they think you did want to know, and they say something less than 100% glowing positive, don't brush them off for being honest.

    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...
