To be fair, I think InconclusiveFool took some ire that was meant for xtn, as he came in with some positive thinking posts right when folks were reacting to xtn's post.

I've read his posts for years, and I can't recall johnmoni/inconclusivefool ever going to the extreme potential triggers that xtn did.

I'm not anti-positive thinking at all. Fancied up and licensed, it's pretty close to the re-framing technique and a few other therapeutic interventions. It's not a bad thing, it's just not a cure-all, and sometimes it's just not doable right then.

PS: Kudos to the OP for wading back into the fray with dignity,grace, and reason
