Hi, it’s been 2 days already, since I last posted ‘+-1’ Anyway, I’ve thought about what to post today. :D: Optimism and Pessimism.
By dictionary definition, Optimism is a disposition or tendency to look on the more favorable side of events or conditions and to expect the most favorable outcome while Pessimism is the tendency to see, anticipate, or emphasize only bad or undesirable outcomes, results, conditions, problems, etc.
Clearly, after being in JC for approximately 5 months, I’ve begun to see what sort of person I am, a pessimistic one. Many have told me that I was a pessimistic individual and well, I think that is true. But truth to be told, I don’t necessarily think that pessimism is bad as it is what that fuels my drive to want to do well in the JC life. I’ve come to understand that at times, it is bad(Especially when it comes to talking to others), but it is necessary(When it comes to ‘drive’ of course). However, optimism once in a while isn’t too bad, it makes me smile once in a while haha :D
But ironically, despite all that I’ve said, I’ve come to despise optimistic people. Its not due to personal reasons but say, but optimistic people tend to over-estimate their abilities, which pale in comparison to many others. In fact, I would like to say that they brag, about how good they are, when they’re not. In fact, sometimes, their optimism manifest(Yes, I’m using manifest) into over-optimism, its just like pride manifesting into arrogance. I simply can’t stand over-optimism as it makes people lazy and incompetent.
Haha, this is just my take on optimism and pessimism.
Anyway, my life is still as boring as ever, but I’m getting prata today :DDDDD. No one’s probably reading this, It’s just a personal diary -…-, so don’t hate on me.
