Is there a stigma attached to positivity?
I was going to write a lengthy argument about this but I want to give the conversation some space to grow. Basically if you've ever been called too idealistic or preachy you have some experience with something I like to call the stigma of positivity.
Is it warranted to say there is a stigma attached to being too positive? And what is it protective of?
Have you ever tried to make your case about something with a positive outlook and have your opinion be disregarded as too naive?
Are you attracted to narratives or pieces of art that have a message of growth embedded within? Do you fear it being labelled as too socially conscious or even "corny"?
What do you think about this?
