On positive thinking

Sometimes I get really sick of all this positive thinking that’s going around. Self-help and spirituality books and the general media tell us to think positive, feel good about our bodies, put family and nation before anything else etc. etc. I just feel like saying “Fuck you!” to them all sometimes.

But then where I get stuck is at the question “What’s the alternative?” If you’re not to think positively, what other choice is there? Think negatively? That won’t do anyone any good now will it. So then I end up back where I was, genuinely thinking positively about some things and resignedly about others.
