It’s funny how people always tell you to be optimistic about something, even though all you feel like doing is being really unoptimistic about it (pessimistic). Maybe what we should really do is just let ourselves feel really upset about something, and then once we’re able to let go and move on, continue onto the road of optimism.

is somehing I find that I don’t often have, not in the things that matter anyway. about money, the fututre, but stupid shit that doesn’t even matter i’m all happy go lucky about. it makes me wonder how I can become more optimistic. i probably really do know, i just don’t want to work at it.

to feel optimistic is to feel good, pleasure, honesty. To be jaded is quite the opposite. To feel optimistic there is a certain naivete about them, but that is not always such a bad thing. Naivete and optimism are often the keys to happiness.

He smiled another cheery smile. A grimace grew on her lips.
“How can you still be smiling?” she growled, furious that his reaction to the rejection was less than subtle.
“There’ s other fish in the sea” he said before walking away.

i can’t stand someone who’s optimistic all the time. i mean, don’t get me wrong. i think life’s great. MOST of the time. but all of the time? no. life sucks sometimes. let’s be serious, people. your father left your mother, you are the leftovers of a divorce. sometimes. JUST SOMETIMES. life sucks sometimes. admit it and move on.

Optimism is a curious thing, you either have it or you don’t. I like to think that I’m an optimistic person but others may say differently. That’s ok though. We all need to spread optimistic feelings because I feel optimism has slowly been deteriorating on earth. We can still make things better.
By Sarah on 12.20.2010
Pessimistic. That’s what everyone calls me. They say, “You’re such a pessimist.” and “You’re so depressing”, but what they really don’t understand is, I think that after something horrible has happened, “at least we’re still alive” is something really optimistic to say.
it goes on and on and on. i see the world, i see the shit, i see the problems, the people who are assholes to each other for no conceivable reason. And yet, every day i think the world is basically a good place, and the people in it are basically good people. am i insane, or just missing something?

Jaja, die Welt unterscheidet sich in Optimisten, Realisten und Pessimisten. Und das Glas ist halb voll oder halb leer, je nachdem. Und es ist immer besser optimistisch zu sein als pessimistisch. Denn erstere haben mehr Freude und letztere haben keine Hoffnung und keine Zukunft und überhaupt.

I tried to have some optimism as I ran up to the man in knee socks. “It’s fine….what is the chance he was there at the time of the murder?”, she thought. Still, she had a strange feeling she’d seen him somewhere…

Me, My future, How I feel about what my goals are, Falcons winning the Super Bowl, Chiefs in the playoffs for two straight years, making over 10 million dollars before I’m 30. Getting married to someone who isn’t a cheating bitch, whore.

the tool for us all to succeed. with an optimistic outlook on life we can become the people that we truly want to be. pessimism is a disease, optimism is a cure.

Keeping your head up when everything tells you to look down…looking for the best in the worst situations…keeping a positive attitude…happy

Optimism. It’s something that I possess. The ability to look on the bright side of everything I do, to see the light in all those around me, to try to also see the silver lining, even when others can only see dark clouds. I wish everyone was optimistic; the world would be a much more beautiful place if it were so.
By Sara on 12.20.2010
Optimism is key. I try so hard to have it. I try so fucking hard. I want it all to work out. I really do. I think it will.
That’s optimism, right?
I answer my own questions. I think that’s okay.
I should be.
By Danielle URL on 12.20.2010
It chases away the sombre clouds,
It paints colours on a gray canvas,
It leads me from a dark valley to green pastures,
It sings a light melody to me when I am weak,
It pulls me up from my troubles,
It gives me strength to live.

Being optimistic, not pessimistic. Thinking about the good things that will happen, rather than the bad. Cheering on the sidelines. Cup half filled. Being a good team partner/worker.
By Amy on 12.20.2010
Optimism. hmm. This reminds me of a tattoo I’d like to get sometimes in the future. I’d like to get a small “eternal sunshine” tattoo. Where? Maybe on the side of my foot or something..
By marella r. URL on 12.20.2010
optimism is pessimism minus the sad. optimism is a lie. a mask to hide the truth. We all die. Thats not pessimism, thats the truth. So just live your life without optimism and pessimism. Just keep it real.
By Annie on 12.20.2010
i dont know.
its a word that i often use to describe myself.
and then someone pisses me off, and bam. shit mood.
i cant help but think what life would be like without optimistic people.. because they are pretty awesome.
yet annoying at the same time
sometimes when people are so fucking happy.
i just want to slap them and say
wake up. life sucks..
By Paulina on 12.20.2010
optimism, the great delusion of humanity. Opium of the swine. What is religion but either a dump of optimism or guilt? You may call me a pessimist, but I’m not. Not a realist either, just a human.
By casey on 12.20.2010
Pessimism is better. Much better. People don’t like thinking what they can do. they like to think of what they can’t do. The only optimistic people in the world are the ones you just wanna fucking punch in the face. Those pieces of shit who want to die. They will get what they ask.

Stranger things have happened than this. We had found ourselves deep in the woods. We had wandered too far from the path. Unlike Hansel and Gretel, there was no trail of bread crumbs. Only broken twigs and branches, crushed leaves, a vague footprint gave any hint as to where we were last. But which shoe-marks were ours, which were our bent and broken remains?
By sonneillon URL on 12.20.2010
What do you want me to say that the world is going to turn out alright? That this is supposed to be less than exciting simply because I do think that? Ok, well my dog agrees. At least her tail, which is as fast and gorgeous as a metronome in affirming that this whole world is wonderful.

over the top and far away
down into the deepest ocean
without you’ll get nowhere
with you’ll get everywhere
By Morrica URL on 12.20.2010
Is a trait that I am well known for
The ability to see the brighter side of
Life and look for the good in people
Expecting things to turn out or at
Least to make the best of them
It’s been so central to my being that
When I slip and feel less than
Hopeful I hide that away clinging to
A past feeling of well-being
By Amiee URL on 12.20.2010
optimism. it is what keeps people fighting, striving, breathing. Without it, what would we be? Nothing, really. Nothing at all. Just hopeless. As much crap as people have to deal with on a daily basis, and as easy as it is to be pessimistic, optimism is something that we all have somewhere inside of us. We just have to find it. And use it. Or we die. Literally, figuratively, however. No matter how you put it, it’s true. We die.

Is highly over rated and belongs to those who are secure about something in their life that is a constant regardless of circumstance.

optimism is something that i have overall, but is hard to see sometimes and can come off the wrong way. it makes me seem naive sometimes because im happy. i dont know.
By taylor on 12.20.2010
I am an optimistic person. I prefer no to let my troubles weigh me down. This is a point of view that not a lot of people tend to share, and one that indeed I too struggle with at times. However, overall I feel that even in the most advers conditions I have sufficiently conditioned myself to overcome most problems.
By PTR on 12.20.2010
Optimism is what I lack. It is what I desire and want. The feeling of eternal positivity instead of enduring negativity. The feeling that hope doest actually spring eternal and that life will be ok in the end. After all, we’re all going to the same place.
By Ciara on 12.20.2010
The opposite of pessimism. I am optimistic that I am better at spelling optimism than I am spelling pessimism. I pride myself in being an optimistic individual. There is already too much negativity in the world. Why add to it?
By n8 on 12.20.2010
I try to keep the Optimism each day that I will have a good day, and that everything that happens to me is as according to plan.
By Mary Lou Wynegar on 12.20.2010
a new day is what keeps me going. i once was able to live without making any effort to make any toward maintaining an attitude of sorts.
