"Disorder" is generally a matter of degree. If whatever state of mind it is, grows to the point that it causes harm, interferes with one effectively and efficiently carrying out one's daily duties at home, at work, and in relationsips, it could be a disorder. If someone is cheerful and can use that positively, No. If they're so unrealisticalyl cheerful that they take needless risks and ignore rdangers, Yes.

hi there

i don't think it's natural to always be positive - it's a act
and a mask they hide behind

i have some family members like that and one has cancer - they always pretented that everything is ok and they are find and on top of it, till one day i spoke openly to them and told them that they rob me of an opportunity to be a ear in a difficult time - they are slowly changing

for them is a sign of weakness and they have to much pride to admid that they can't cope and for that reason they hide behind their lasks and live a life of make believe

but i think a persona can have a positive attitude even while they are realistic about tough times - it's something that comes from inside, like having a peaceful heart even if the world is falling apart - you have faith that things will work out for the best, that you what it takes to pass this test

take care
