You Get More Flies with Honey

Debbie Downer

I feel like people take positivity for granted. I’ve come to the unfortunate realization that positivity is not universal. In general I am pretty happy person. Sure, I dish out my fair dose of sarcasm, but it’s always lighthearted. There are just some people that let the weight of the world bring them down and then spit their negativity out at anyone who will listen.

I’ve decided that I’m done with it. I don’t want to be a negative asshole. I know people who are that way and I can’t stand spending more than 5 minutes listening to them ramble on about how Obamacare is going to ruin our country or how my generation is full of degenerates. No more generalizations, they’re not fair to that shiny happy person out there that works hard to look at the bright side.

I’m not saying we should be oblivious to the world around us, but there is a time and a place to talk about things and it never hurts to throw a positive spin on the matter, people appreciate it. No one likes a Debbie Downer, so just remember that when you’re about to say something negative.
