Don’t judge, I’m babysitting. Basically, a little girl’s best friend moves away and she’s upset about it. In typical Carebear fashion, they’re all jumping to make her feel better, “I’ll be your best friend!” type stuff which just makes her MORE upset. Then Grumpy explains that sometimes you just need to be sad or mad for a while and to let her feel the way she does instead of trying to put a bandaid on it.
Very often, it seems like you aren’t allowed to be anything but perfect happy people. If you’re sad, then you must be depressed. If you’re mad, you have anger issues. Any sort of negative emotion is deemed unacceptable. I like that this episode was saying that it’s ok to not be happy all the time, every day, for the rest of forever. You can be upset and when you’re ready, your friends will be there to cheer you up.
