Do you think you are born either a pessimist or an optimist? Or does this develop based on your family and attitudes of those around you? If you are one, can you become the other? Can you actually decide which you want to be and then go about being that way?
Here’s a quote I came across recently that really had me shaking my head at how perfect it is. I think it is VERY true and said in the best way I have ever seen.
“Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may be given a cactus, but you don’t have to sit on it!”
Tell me what you think of this quote. Or if you think people can change to become an optimist if they’ve been a pessimist their entire life.
