do u think being a realist is an indirect way of saying that u are a pessimist?
Not at all! the two are so very different. you could possibly be a realist with pessimistic properties, but being a realist is completley different to being an pessimist. pessimism is seeing the negative side of things. optimism is seeing the positive side of things. realism, on the other hand, is having the ability to analyze a situation from every angle and usually come to the conclusion that it is neither positive nor negative, or perhaps both.
* You’re exactly right! i totally agree. I often think my realism gets skewed by too many negative things/events that are happening.
But I like to see things from the bright sides with the uplifting attitude! Yay optimism~!
