We wouldn't be whole people if we didn't feel the full range of emotions and yes, sadness and anger and fear are just a part of life. It's got to the point where a (former) friend once berated me for sharing my personal thoughts and feeling on my personal Facebook profile. It definitely was more positive than negative but when I had a less pleasant experience or had to get something off my chest, I would. I literally got called out on that, and that really made me wary to share anything at all. Nowadays, I just do what I want to do, and most of it is pretty positive anyway. If people don't like it, they can choose not to read it. But the forced positivity can really hurt people, can really make them feel they are wrong for having a wide range of emotions. It does not do to dwell but everyone is entitled to a bad day and nobody is always happy.
