Positivity can be a negative," I tell her, "if its used to diminish events that should be cause for concern. Saying bad things happen to good people or "God doesnt give anyone more than they can handle, for instance, isnt necessarily helpful to the person to whom something bad happened
it is much more beneficial to those who wish to be dismissive- who dont really care to think about the why or how or who. And if we cease to see the real human part in events

Imagination is what I have when I'm on my own. Pretending is what I do in the world. There's a space in between those two spaces, maybe like the space between life and death, but it's hard to navigate, and even harder to understand.
