~*Optimism and Pessimism*~

~Today i did some research and found out the meanings for Pessimistic Optimist(yeah its my blogger name and i don`t know what it means >_<) and Optimistic Pessimism. 
~Okie, first of all, a Pessimist is a person who sees the glass as half empty. They notice the negative sides of events and objects. They are the people who find flaws in things and are usually always prepared for bad events to occur. Its sunny outside? Hey, no harm in bringing an umbrella in case it rains.
~An Optimist is the ying to the pessimist yang; the opposite of a pessimist. They find the rainbow in every storm, and smile at even the worst of events. They always find ways to keep happy and see only the bright side of things. 
~ Pessimistic Optimist - A pessimistic Optimist is neither a pessimist nor an optimist. They hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Somewhat like me, because i always pray for the best, but i prepare for the worst cause i have the stupidest luck, it`s so stupid that it`s stupid!
~ Optimistic Pessimism - In my understanding, i think optimistic pessimism is people who seem happy all the time they even become the envy of others because of their happiness, where else in reality they are as equally miserable as every other person. They wear a mask of happiness whenever they are not alone so that they do not bring sadness to others around them. I do this all the time, apparently it`s really easy to deceive people xD 
~I recall once when i was in Primary school this girl said that i would not understand sadness, and that she bet i have never been unhappy in my entire life( this is because i always smile at school) I just smiled at her without replying. She transferred to an international school when we moved to Secondary school. Believe me, life at home was terrible, although it has gotten better now. We should not judge others before getting to know them first ;)
