    No matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you fight, success is waiting for you. Lurking around every corner ready for you.

    Ominous positivity is just another type of toxic positivity.

    Oh, everything didn’t work out? Maybe go fuck yourself, then.

            I think it’s actually a godless, indifferent universe that wins.

              If you’re not joking, I’m sorry you have cancer. That really sucks. I know these words will go a long way toward paying the bills! I hope you’re able to figure out the financial challenges and beat it.

                I’m not lying, and thank you for the kind words. It’s just really hard to find positivity in anything these days. It feels forced, and I’m tired.

                  I’m tired and struggle to find positivity on a daily basis, and I don’t have cancer, so I really can’t imagine the strain. I sincerely hope you find a reason to fight it. Hell, I’ll happily chip in toward a GoFundMe or similar.

      Reminds me of Toxic Optimism! Someone so sure it’s all going to work out that they do nothing to prepare.

      There’s no way in heck we’re gonna hit that tree!

    that’s basically the thing i kept repeating to myself during bad times™. “there’s still Nerf blasters to collect, just show up to work tomorrow and they will have to pay you”.

    These tumblrs just reply by repeating the same joke almost verbatim. Four times. Shades of r/yourjokebutworse

      These comments are responding with the same content, nearly identically. Several times. It’s almost like the subreddit your joke but worse

      Also, repeating a punchline is often used in comedy. They’re not exactly doing anything unusual as far as humor is concerned
