Do we have to add an addendum to every post to say we’re sorry about all the death? Come on.
We are all more fortunate than large sections of this country to be considering Florida for our holidays, even in normal times. An awareness of this is something which I think is implicitly ever present on this forum.
We don't need telling every other post, but it also doesn't do us any harm to be reminded every now and again. I have liked both posts.

I see what you are saying but personally I find it very patronising. As someone who works in a care home I am well aware of the effects Covid and other illnesses have on people. However my mental health has taken a battering and I think it is absolutely fair enough that people should be allowed on a holiday forum to express feelings of disappointment. I certainly will not apologise for feeling upset at losing two Disney holidays. Having lost a son to cancer I am aware in the scheme of things it’s not important as such but I equally believe mental health is as important as physical and people shouldn’t have there feelings dismissed so easily.

I’ve been guilty of negativity- hands up, guilty as charged but it’s only because my outlook is - if you prepare for the worst, anything else is a bonus.
I would rather not set myself up for disappointment. That’s not to say, having the complete opposite opinion is wrong either. Some people need the hope.

Back to Donaldfan, she has continually been an advocate from what I have read of positivity so I’m pretty sure the response didn’t quite come across as intended.
