Is Disney not just a kid's thing? All make believe and magical. Surely that can only ever exist in the movies? Or if you mix your meds with vodka, maybe.

Hi jaus tail,

The Disney corporation runs suicide sweatshops, pollutes the environment, & exploits child labor. Disney level happiness is a big fat corporate lie. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Not for any sustained period of time for anyone. There is life with long periods of relief from emotional pain but Disney Level happiness as someones baseline, nope.

Society from what I have seen over the years has a whole bunch of people striving to act "Normal". And the reality is behind the scenes everyone (not just folks with diagnosed mental illness) act crazy. There was actually one point where I thought I had met someone who was "Normal" for real even behind closed doors. He was a surfer style dude, great education, good looks (not that I am into guys) and his wife visited the office one day and she was surprisingly plain and down to earth compared to her model-ish looking husband.

I thought ok here we go, this super nice, well groomed, handsome, educated, pleasant to everyone guy is an example of someone who actually is the "Normal" act that everyone else has to pretend in public. And I kept that thought until a couple of subordinates told me about how he treated them and it was jaw dropping. He had total issues with trust and micro managed everything they did in a super condescending way that definitely wasn't routine.

I realized everyone, even him had hangups and was just not this act of "Normal" behind the scenes. It really sucks in a sense that society feels like they have to act "Normal" and then we wall behind the scenes act "Un-Normal" at times yet then feel shamed like we somehow are not the "Normal" we put on in public. We shame ourselves for not being "Normal" for real like everyone else. But turns out from everything I have experienced my whole life, that there is no "Normal" other than the act for any lengthy period of time in a persons life. Everyone absolutely everyone you see reverts to "Un-Normal" quite often when they are not putting up the act.

Anything that appears like Disney-level Happiness either doesn't exist or only does so for brief periods of time. And many times photos that express Disney-level happiness you might see on social media are put up to prove to others that they are that happy but without them actually being so.

true. like life without stress or something.

but i think he must be happy with his life. i mean he was a bit condescending to others but for himself he'd be happy right? a clear conscience.
