The Pessimistic Optimist

For years comparisons have been made by following either/or logic. For example, there are two types of people in this world those who x and those who y. Categorizing is what we do and this is why when it comes to personality traits there are “pessimist” (the negative people) and “optimist” (the positive people.) Of course I don’t feel that I fit into either of these two categories I feel that I am the pessimistic optimist.

I’m the sarcastic cynic who comes off as evil yet inside there is always optimism. Once you get to know me you’ll see that I find that good in the situation. For this reason I call myself the pessimistic optimist. I think everyone should have a bit of optimism in them and everyone probably does they just hid it to look like “the tough guy.” I’ll let you in on a little secret, it’s not worth it. Be yourself.
