How come angry, sad, miserable people don't like being around happy, upbeat, joyful people?

I would love to be around those who are cheerful, happy, joyful and upbeat.

    If you’re talking about people who cope with depression, the answer is pretty simple. People often say “Go out with your friends! Go to a party! You need to be around people, not holed up in your room — it’ll cheer you up!” In fact, for people coping with clinical depression, being around others is incredibly draining. They have to put on a show of being happy so they don’t stand out or drag others down, and seeing everyone else enjoying themselves so effortlessly makes their own distance from “normal” emotions all the more painful. It’s the emotional equivalent of dancing on broken legs.
