Can positivity be a form of escapism?


The truth is something that burns. It burns off dead wood. And people don't like having the dead wood burnt off, often because they're 95 percent dead wood. - Jordan Peterson

In a way yes , but some people are genuinely nice and can't help it . For me the cup is neither half empty or half full just half . I try to be relaxed . But as they say : hope for the best and plan for the worse .

So I agree with the point that "only good vibes" is a steamy dumpster fire, but not for the same reason. In my experience, those who say that stupid phrase and live the "positive" lifestyle tend to be privileged enough to escape the issues that often put me in a bad mood.

Similarly, one of the best emotional health tips I ever heard came from Tom Haverford who said people don't want you to fix all their problems, they want you to say 'that sucks.'

That's the one of the problems of nowadays society. People are trying to be positive all the time, to everybody, but It's usually, as you said just distraction and attempt to run away of their problems.
Personally I am careful about people who are focused just one way, it evokes within me some sort of concern. And for some time will be this positivity turned into some sort of emotional explosion as the response of ignored feelings of unwanted emotions.

In oneself.. if it promotes bad outcomes. In others, none of my business unless they seem to not realize if its causing them bad outcomes. for then I might be able to help. If there positivity is annoying me, then that's my issue not theirs.
