Hope for the best but expect the worst too

I'm always hoping for the best and exercise my faith in God that things will all go perfect. But now the opposite is happening, things fail, I get disappointed. I forget to remember the saying that we should expect the worst too. I should prepare my heart if things fail or things don't work out. It's not bad to be a positive thinker and hope for the best but we should be realistic thinker too. I'm confuse but I still hope for the best but I'm prepared for anything worst.

Like in times of typhoons we should expect the worst so we will prepare ourselves but it's just for planning. We should still always hope for the best.

I have heard this to one friend, expect the worse in everything in your life and you are prepared.

It can be confusing emotionally at times, but the concept works!

I always "expect to be disappointed so I won't be disappointed." Softens the blow if things to not turn out.

I always hope for the best and if something bad happens then I try to see something positive in that situation. I try to see bad experiences as lessons learned.
