Being Positive = Being Fake?

As someone who considers myself a genuinely happy person today, I will get the occasional criticism or two about my attitude and my outlook on life. One of the most common ones I hear is that I am not “realistic” enough, that I am failing to acknowledge the other side of the coin, the negatives in this world.

I use to feel this was a valid point, so I started to ask myself some questions. Because I am choosing to be a positive person, does that mean I have to be ignorant to the idea of evil to some extent? Even more extreme, would I ever have to go as far as deny in my mind that evil happens on a daily basis? Here’s my simple answer: definitely no. I’m sure there are some people who may think like this, but I am not one of them.

Here is how I see it:
