Optimism or pessimism? Glass half full of half empty?
Can you learn to be optimistic or is it a mindset with which you were born?
Have hardships made you look world in a pessimistic way?
There are two groups of people: the ones who see good in bad and the ones who see bad in good.
I think it is always better to lean to more optimistic side of life.
Life is a gift and although it may not seem always so, when for example confronted with difficulties, you will more easily get through them if keeping positive attitude. Real art is to appreciate every situation in which you may find yourself, whether your perception of it is good or bad.
Often bad situations turn out to be the greatest blessings, but sometimes we don’t see it in the given moment. Pessimissm brings bitternes, reduced enjoyment of life and unhappines, so try to learn to view people or situations around you in brighter light.
Everyone wants to be surrounded by positive people and not drown in negativity. Positive energy creates more postive energy. When you get to happiness you will more easily attract even more happiness. To get there you must learn to accept good and bad, you must try to work on yourself, ask for help when needed and cultivate mindful approach. I think that people who ask for help when life becomes hard for them are truly strong people, because they know they need assistance and they readily show they vulnerability.
My advice for anyone wanting to be more positive is to learn to enjoy in small, everyday parts of life. Cherish the moments you spend with your family, help others, don’t isolate yourself.
Everyone has his own share of problems, we can try to solve them or mourn over them, it is all about the mindset- our approach to life in general.
If you learn to put effort in becoming an optimist, instead of all the energy you are wasting on your negativity, you will soon see it pays off.
I wish you to be happy, because that’s who you are!
