The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in ever difficulty.
When are you an optimist?
‘In the dictionary, an optimist is described as someone who sees the good in everything and expects situations to develop positively in the future. Such a person can be perceived as naive by someone who has already been through quite a bit. The world is not all about positivity and sometimes there is nothing good about an event.
This is not what an optimist is about. An optimist is someone who sees the bad things and also knows that negative things can happen, but does not let themselves be boxed in by this. They trust in themselves and in the world and know that they will always work it out in the end and it will be okay no matter what. Mostly because they know they will take care of this themselves. An optimist can therefore also be very realistic.
When are you a pessimist?
A pessimist is described in the dictionary as someone who always sees the negative in something and expects things to develop badly in the future. A pessimist is someone who sees the good things but knows that bad things can always happen and that everything has a downside. This isn’t a big deal in principle, it’s just how you look at it. The problem with pessimists is that they often worry about bad things that don’t have to happen at all or a pessimist puts everything outside of himself and feels powerless and despondent as a result.
When are you a realist?
Being a realist is completely separate from being pessimistic or optimistic. A realist simply sees all possible outcomes, both positive and negative. According to the dictionary, a realist is therefore none other than someone who focuses on reality.
