"There's no "should" or "should not" when it comes to having feelings. They're part of who we are and their origins are beyond our control. When we can believe that, we may find it easier to make constructive choices about what to do with those feelings."
"Confronting our feelings and giving them appropriate expression always takes strength, not weakness... It takes strength to face our sadness and to grieve and let our grief and our anger flow in tears when they need to. It takes strength to talk about our feelings and to reach out for help and comfort when we need led lights."             --- Fred Rogers

When Mr. Bulldog tells Josephine to do "five smiles in one standing while looking up into the sky," she doesn't just try it and "ta-da, problem solved!" She does overcome her problem, but its not just "'count to 4" and poof! problem solved...

Etc, etc, etc... Shall I go on?

I guess these are a few examples of why I don't think Fred would have approved of it.


Completely agree with you.. Expressing feeling or emotions in right manner is toughest thing.. If we are able to do that then we will make lots of true friends
