“Stay Positive” Mantra

That “stay positive” mantra is cute but it ain’t realistic. Constant positivity is a form of avoidance, and not a valid solution to your problems. Sometimes life is fucked up, and the healthiest thing your ass could do is admit it. And I understand that you have to stay positive in order to receive the benefit in “shitty situations”. I’m referring to those who use it all the time in order for them to not confront the real problem at hand. Problems do not solve themselves by you “staying positive”. Stop trying to avoid the issue and deal with it head on because the longer you wait, the longer whatever you’re running from will be an issue.
