What does optimism mean? To me it means always seeing the better side of life. I consider myself to be an optimistic person because I look with positivity on future plans and I look with a smile on the future.
What is pessimism? Pessimism is the exact opposite of optimism. When a person is pessimistic they dread the future. They dread going out of the house because they just know something bad is going to happen. Pessimists are too afraid to follow dreams because they “wouldn’t work anyway.” I am absolutely certain that being pessimistic can damage your life. It can ruin a vacation, a relationship, a road trip, a fair, and much much more.
Being optimistic rather than pessimistic even has health benefits!
