Over the last decade or so, we have been ever increasingly conditioned for optimism. We have been bombarded with the philosophies of dozens of positive thinking gurus and our media outlets show us entertainment instead of the news that should be important to us … mostly so that we stay positive and pacified.

Although we can’t say for sure, I am going to give you some things to consider that make a very strong argument for yes, optimism can be unhealthy.
