Its good to be a optimist, because its a person who look on the brightside of things. Its the outlook that good things will happen, even if the situation may not appear totally positive at the moment. however some optimists have been criticized for putting so much of a positive spin on things, that they may be avoiding reality. studies show that optimists have a lower risk for depression and also tend to have better general health. They also have a better coping skills as they tend to realize what they can control and what they cant in helping to mak their lives more positive, and I think thats a good attitude to adapt especailly in such a difficult times we all are faced with.

It is always good to look on the bright side. You have to be a realist, but sometimes having dreams will make your life better because then you do not give up. I tend to be a little depressed at times, but it is low grade and not as bad, and then other times I feel a little better, so in me, things sort of balance themselves out. But I am not a Pollyanna. As it is, I am a realist.
