No it's not. I would like to know why you posted this also, any specific reason or incidence or just ranting?

When you talk as if Atheism gives you some ultimate freedom. When your deconversion stories sound SO MUCH like conversion stories. When you act as though you're some God for "being in control of yourself", as if that's possible. When you illogically dismiss things which harm your happiness.

What, exactly, is being 'illogically dismissed'?

Please provide examples and show your work for full credit.

I aint no damn optimist and I dare say it shows.

I'm talking about people on this forum in general. (people everywhere for that matter -_-)

It's kinda hard to provide any reasonable answer to such a broad claim. Perhaps you can find one of these many examples and ask the poster in question. You might get a more specific and insightful answer.

Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
