In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with feeling good, even in the middle of societally certified disheartening conditions.

Sure, I assign responsibility and obligation in response to actions, but I firmly believe I get to feel however I want, regardless of what’s happening. (This may invite cliché ridicule and negative rationale, which is why I typically keep it to myself.)

  1. Exactly! With a huge number of venues perpetually pointing out the negatives and dangers, we forget the overwhelming good that goes on. I don’t want to contribute to the downfall. If at all possible, I’d rather be a good influence. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Shame shame! Personal responsibility, especially for one’s feelings is a cardinal sin nowadays. We’re all supposed to run around, point fingers and act more emo than a BAD middle school play of Buffy the Vampire Slayer 😛 😀

  3. I agree. I keep most things to myself especially when it’s something that gives me joy. Public displays of happiness are considered to be cringe inducing for those who do not share those moments or empathise with you. It’s better to keep it to our selves.

  4. Fairly well agree with you here. I don’t even feel bad when feeling good about some others’ contrived discomfort; simplest example, when someone gets absurdly moany-faced about a perceived PC-uncorrectness, I have found myself giggling at both the unhappy souls and mistaken perception of impropriety.

    • I think I can relate. Ironically, to feel better, I kind of have to abide in the negativity without inflaming it, wallowing in it, or denying it. It always feels more nuanced than words can describe, in my opinion.
