.As a practicing NOM (Negative Old Man), I think it's my duty to remind a young person like you that balance is an important thing in life. Positive and loving are wonderful things, but don't forget that glum, fetid, and grumblingful have their place, too. Personally, I try to do at least one thing each day that I can say "Holy crap, that was stupid and self-destructive", then brood about it for hours. Makes me sleep more poorly every night so that I can face the new day with suspicion, dread and the feeling that the sky is about to fall. It's a good thing I have a couple of stuffed animals (an octopus and orangutan) that I can talk to, even tho' they cheat at poker and I owe them thousands of dollars.
