This warped view point is so widespread that it seems like the world has been brainwashed into thinking that its "negative" for victims of abuse to speak up and try to get help, "negative" to expose crimes against humanity with the hope for them to stop, "negative" to feel sad - "negative" to feel hurt while being abused, "negative" to cry/grieve/heal...etc., which helps to perpetuate these horrible crimes. If the public can be convinced that victims who talk about or expose these crimes are just being "negative," the abuse freely continues and the victims are the ones who become bad guys.
The TRUTH is that its positive to talk about it and write about it, because it lets it out and offers a chance for the abuse to stop through being exposed. Its negative to not talk about it. Its positive to be REAL and feel what ever we feel, especially when we are being hurt by something. Its the negative behaviors, which are inflicting the pain, that need to be stopped. Its negative to think that a person who is being tortured with microwaves should just shut up and be happy and carry on as if nothing horrible is happening. . .so that the crimes can freely continue. Its positive to shine a Light into these dark closets, because this is what will chase the dark away.
And realize that exposing abuse is what stops it.
There are wise people who say that its wrong to judge - that, when it comes to feelings, there is no such thing as "negative" or "positive" - that it just is what it is. I tend to agree with this philosophy. But for the sake of helping the labelers to understand I use them here. So again, its best to just be real and best to not negatively judge anyone for being real. Please understand.
