Optimism vs. Pessimism


Registered Member
Are you usually optimistic, or pessimistic?

I feel like I'm right in the middle. I'm optomistic, then I become a little pessimistic just to keep myself in check, make sure I don't have my head in the clouds.

I'm a balance really. Some days I can be a total pessimist about life but others, I'm seeing the glass half full. More often than not I'm optimistic about things, but lately it's been slightly harder.

I prefer to call myself a realist, but really I'm a pessimist.

I have zero faith in Humanity, and very little capacity for hope. It's not really so much that I see the glass as half-empty; I see it as already have been spiked, stolen, or spat in. :dunno:

I'm an optimist. Don't know why. It's just how I am. (I guess I just figure I can endure whatever gets tossed at me, and that lady luck's been really kind to me, all things considered.)

I'm pretty much always optimistic when it comes to other people. With myself, then it largely depends on which of my 2 moods I'm currently in.

I guess most of the time it's a mixture of the two, like I'll think: "everything's probably going to go wrong, but it will be ok in the end."
I used to be pretty optimistic, but after the living Hell (ofc there's no pun intended *snort* ) I've had to suffer for the past year, I guess you could call me pessimistic. Some even says I have symptoms for Bipolar Disorder, so hey, go figure.

Total pessimist. Unless I'm having my delusions of grandeur moments, where I am unnaturally optimistic. But life usually has a way of meeting my expectations.

Used to be pessimistic all the time. Then again I used to plan everything. With a plan B, C, D, E and F. Nothing caught me by surprise. I was never really happy either.

Now my default setting is feeling great. I don't worry about the issue anymore. Eyes on the prize.
