Ah shit, if I earned a cent for everytime I've heard this I would be rich by now...

Personally, I don't agree, because reality is not all bad things but eh, thats just my opinion :)

I'll respect yours

I call myself an optimist because things often turn out even worse than I expected.

Ah, so true.
My friend told me to stop being pessimistic. But hey, I know that I will never have a DD or more that 100 watchers. Yeah, maybe in 1000 years. But I know that I'm not very talented. :XD:

And anyways, being an optimist seems very hard. You expect the best and all you get is a slap in the face. Dissapointment, pain, rage...

Optimist = Either you expect it to happen, or you're disappointed.

Pessimist = Either you expect it to happen, or it's better than what you expected.

I'm a realist too.
When my friends talk about going to top colleges, I raise an eyebrow and abstain from that.
And then when they complain about getting F's on their finals, I just calmly tell them that they probably just got at least a C.

-_- Jeez.

*Hysterical laughter* NOW THIS IS THE BEST STAMP I'VE SEEN IN DA! INSTANT :+fav:!

*Clears throat*

I would never enjoy being with an optimist (due to the fact that they see things from the 'good' point of view...).
A pessimist, I'm okay since I share the almost same views as you.
A realist? Now that is someone I would be talking for hours. :D :stab:

OMG! WIN!!! If only I had a dollar for every time I said this.

I take the 'glass half full/empty' example:

Optimistic people see the glass as half full. Pessimistic see the glass as half empty. Me, a realist, sees it either way. If the glass was empty and you filled it half way, then it's half full. If the glass was full and you poured out half the contents, it's half empty. It depends on the situation. That easy... XD

For a time, yes, I was a pessimistic person who didn't think highly of anything. Rather, for a while, I thought quite LOWLY of everything.

Now that I've started to turn my life around, I'm finding that keeping a healthy vision of realistic value, while still retaining some fantastical ideals for my own entertainment, seems to give me more answers than questions. And trust me, that is a good thing.

Unfortunately, because my views are more realistic and critical, people mark me as a killjoy, or an asshole, or some other vulgar words that they think match my personality.

Well, pardon me for realizing obvious flaws in this idea and making note of them as a fair warning before you stupidly try and act them out, I didn't realize helping your case was against the law.

Reality is neither good nor bad -- but a nice mix of the two. Keep things balanced. It's one of the resasons why I hate emos and rose-tinted glasses... :bleh:
