I do get why people post this stuff. They mean no harm at all. They are usually super happy, smiley, ever cheerful people themselves, who are just lovin life SO much that they only want that for you as well. Because they love you. They love life. They want you to love life right there with them.
But really it's not always possible to CHOOSE to be happy, is it? I guess it is for some. I'm sure somewhere, at some time there was SOMEONE who got a terrible, life threatening diagnosis & it totally didn't piss on their parade. Right? I've yet to MEET that person. Or maybe I have. I dunno.
O & I were talkin about this sort of stuff the other day, and we came to the conclusion that, the majority of people who appear to be all Happy Happy Joy Joy, like ALL the time, have never had to face their own mortality or be concerned about where they & their family will sleep that night, or any stuff equally as terrifying. OR, the exact opposite is true. They are miserable, unhappy & just trying to find their way back to happy with these lovely affirmations.
I don't have issues
anymore with seeing these quotes & stuff everywhere, really, so please don't think that's what this post is tryin to say...at all. I'm just sayin...folks, try to keep in mind that for some, Happy may just have to be put on hold for a bit. Could be a few hours, days, weeks....maybe even months or years. Some will never be happy again. I, thankfully, am not one of those people. I have found my way back to happy. For the most part. I could be way happier, too. But I can tell you this. There was a good long stretch of time that seein that stuff posted in my news feeds had the exact opposite effect for me.
Not sayin anybody should change anything about what they say or do, or post online, or feel or whatever. Just another random musing....thoughts...
I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin.
