Optimism Vs Pessimism

by - 11:47:00

An Optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

A Pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. 

As most people will probably know, I am quite a pessimist.. And I actually find it really hard to be more optimistic about things.. 
An optimist and a pessimist see life in a different light than the other..  being optimistic makes life feel a bit better and happier.. being pessimistic, you often expect the worst to happen.. it's not all that bad being pessimistic though.. it can stop you feeling let down, you expect the worse so it doesn't bother you as much as it would if you didn't expect it. Being optimistic about everything has it's downfalls, if you expect everything to go perfectly (or just good!) and it all goes terribly wrong (or just bad!), you would feel even worse and let down..

Are you more optimistic or pessimistic?
