Amen! I know when people say this sort of thing, they think it’s a compliment, but really it takes away a person’s individuality.
Did you write anything more on this subject? Or, know of any other essays on this subject? I need to send it to a young doctor who made a comment about all people with a particular disorder always being happy. Ugh.
Sorry for delay! Here’s one I wrote for Love That Max that is in part about Happy: http://www.lovethatmax.com/2015/03/what-i-wish-others-understood-about-my.html
That doctor might learn 4 other things from that post:)
