I’ve often though this about myself. Am I an optimist or pessimist? I used to be a very passionate optimist often smiling in the face of adversity. Well…90% of the time. I do not think of myself in the same vein anymore. What happened? Well, I grew up and life hit me smack in the center of my forehead!
I wouldn’t call myself a total pessimist as that would not be fair. I think that pessimistically optimistic is more like it. Or a realist with a sour outlook on life but with an underlining cloud of hope in the horizon. And perpetually hoping that the think line of hope is not too distant and will come close very soon. That sounds more like it.
