Is being positive being ignorant?

Hello my beautiful people, ever since I overcame depression and found my place in this world (more or less) I have found that looking on the bright side, being positive, though tough as hell can actually be for the better, however now a days when I try to point out the positives to others who are down, they tell me that it is a waste of time and that being overly positive is hazardous to ones health as it makes you blissfully ignorant to REAL problems...

Do you agree with this? What are your views on optimism? Can one's optimism truly be the root cause for their downfall?
