I was walking through my former co-worker’s department whistling away, when he came up behind me and told me the whole area was a, “no whistling zone, no happy thought zone.” I find a lot of this negativity among people.
This particular co-worker usually has a negative attitude, rarely finding laughter in anything that isn’t a cut at someone or a dirty joke. What kind of existence is that? The existence that says happiness is hated. What is life to them?
Do you want to know my response to his comment? I said, “that doesn’t apply to me.” No one has a right to suppress happiness or joy!
