think so. This is also one part of the case made by the social critic Barbara
Ehrenreich, in her 2009 book Bright-Sided: How Positive Thinking Is

Barbara Ehrenreich's 2009 book Bright Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of
Positive Thinking Has Undermined America offers a withering critique of what

uncolored as possible by our own feelings and fantasies. . . .” We need to detach
from our emotions and moor ourselves to objective facts, including those we
might not like.
