Lots of things are silly. Boys are silly. Getting mad at my friends this week was silly. I'm pretty silly.

Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that life isn't quite the way you want it to be, and deal with that. That doesn't mean you should just ignore when you get upset, and pretend everything is wonderful when it's not. It means you accept that the situation makes you angry, or upset, and then you deal with your emotions. Ignoring your negative emotions only makes them fester, and then you have huge emotional problems later. Getting angry is part of life. Being stressed out is part of life. Having negative emotions doesn't mean you need a therapist. Not knowing how to deal with your negative emotions means you need a therapist. There is a fundamental difference between the two.
