Pessimism sees what is and assumes that this is the way it will always be.
- Nobody says they are are being pessimistic. They say they are just being realistic.
- The pessimist is the most unrealistic person on the planet.
Optimism sees reality before it arrives
- Today we see a reality that was created by optimists
- Optimism is the key to all success
- Unfortunately, we live in a world where pessimists outnumber optimists
I’m not a person that likes to lie to myself by saying that I’m just being realistic, I know that I am a pessimist most of the time. I can find some things to be optimistic about but most of the time I like to stay with what’s comfortable for me and that is not looking past what my life is right now. This is not like a I can’t see any future or anything like that, just sometimes I get my hopes up that something good will happen in the future and I get optimistic for a brief second and then my brain switches back to not seeing anything past right now.
