We obviously know different people. I find people tend to be much more negative than positive. When they meet optimistic people they think they're a bit slow. Those ridiculous quotes people throw out are just something they say when it pertains to other people. I've always interpreted them as a brush off. Just get over it and leave me alone. I don't want to think this can and possibly will happen to me. They're already negative so hearing your problems takes away from centering on themselves.
