Pessimism

Yippee a hundredth post since I started my blog!!! Guess what ? The 100th post is about my new found pessimism :D I guess there are too many people who view the glass as half full these days so a little dose of pessimism is gonna do everyone good.

So why be a pessimist. Simply put : Being a pessimist gets me proven right or I get a pleasant surprise :D
Think of it this way. For those who actually view the glass as half full tend to get disappointed when they realised they are only half full when they drink the glass of milk :) At least when pessimists drink it, they are half hungry.

Even in most points in life, people tend to get more disappointed when they are hoping. The worse thing is, Life is so ironic in how it always give us the opposite of what we hope for. The bankers were hoping for a better economy and see how 2008 turned out to be? People are hoping to find the "special one" but do they realise that the odds of finding one person among the billions that live on Earth is like finding a needle in a haystack? wait a minute, finding d needle is easier actually. Even d odds of winning d jackpot is so much higher. It is one to a million. D former, one to a few billions.

And so, whenever you are feeling hopeful, do remember to have that hint of a doubt and pessimism :D The higher your hopes are, the bigger your disappointments will be.

in one way, pessimism is an attitude for living, as adding a shock absorber to every bad news. "The worse thing is, Life is so ironic in how it always give us the opposite of what we hope for." i like these words~~~
