I'm a pessimistic person but my choice is outward optimism!. This is how it works: I am usually thinking pessimistically, but on the outside I offer others optimistic views of different situations!. If you pretend to be optimistic, you might become optimistic yourself one day!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Pessimism!. If you expect everything to be horrible all the time, it will be a pelasant surprise if something turns out to be decent!. Being optimistic will only make you disappointed!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

optimism!.!.!. life is too short not too see and expect the good things in life!. i mean, if you always expect the worst (which is sometimes hard to bear) why dont you just kill yourself! lolWww@QuestionHome@Com

I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things!. The glass is always half-empty!. And cracked!. And I just cut my lip on it!. And chipped a tooth!.
