Pessimistic vs Optimistic - whose the smarter one, who wins with less pain?
I've always thought of myself as being the optimistic person...I'll cling on to a tiny hope
or dream and make it my very possible reality but is that always good?
I had a discussion about this once with my sister and she's always taken the pessimistic approach
to nearly everything..I told her I can never live my life that way for if I did I would have nothing to be hopeful about. No dreams. How can there be happiness that way?
She gave something to think about...
She said what happens when those high hopes of yours get shot down ?
How do you feel?
You feel horrible. You almost wish it never even popped in your mind.
So it's best sometimes, she said, to protect yourself...from yourself. And be happy only when the time comes and it's right infront of you. Live for the moment, and the moment only.
I mean I have been hurt before so is that right?
What are your thoughts?
