Correspondingly, the excessive amount of happiness may suppress the appreciation for other feelings. Many people hide their true emotions with a facade of happiness. They feel as though being happy is better than letting any other feelings come to the surface. This is not to say that all positive emotions or happiness is to be omitted from your feelings.

It can be considered as ‘Read and Throw’ type of literature. To be brief, such a literature is not necessarily for the next generation but for the contemporary generation.

Terry Eagleton claims that literature was becoming the same as ‘imaginative. ' Writing about things that didn’t exist was more valued by the audience, and it was more exciting to read than reading about things that are in existence.

(Ahmed, 123) If we take an example: reading a romantic novel makes us happy. This object contains a promise that if we read this novel, it will result in happiness. The happiness does not reside in this book, but happiness is what comes after reading it and as a result of approaching this book, because objects alone do not contain happiness in themselves.
When we experience negative emotions like sadness, frustration, and hopelessness we either try to put those feelings out of our mind, or let them take over so that we feel engulfed by them and powerless against them. These and other negative feelings are normal during job transition. Rather than waste energy fighting back negative feelings, let the feelings roll over you; but choose not to dwell in them.

Technology is just there. It has no objective good or bad to its use. I 'm not saying that it can not be used for bad things, all things can be used for malus.
