In my opinion, this guy has got it all wrong.. sure we shouldn’t just pretend that everything is fine, but still, if something bad has happened, it’s better to see it as a opportunity for something you think is good, and be positive in that way. Instead of just think, oh no.. that’s really bad.. I/we’ll never get over that..

He isn’t say to be a pessimist when there is a problem but to not be such an asshole and turn a blind eye to the situation at hand and go about your day smiling like an idiot! He is saying to stop being so delusional about the reality of the matter and do what needs to be done.
