It depends upon my mood. There are times that when i am faced with many problems i tend to get paranoid and think a lot of bad things that might happen but there are also times that i try to be optimistic....

Yes, I totally agree with you. I'm an optimist so I build opportunities out of difficulties. I like your thoughts about this, something worth thinking of. Anyway, I had several experiences in the past when I had to face up trials of job loss and financial loss. I never stopped trying because I just thought that there were better opportunities and options than the previous ones. I just had to discover or push the right buttons. I think my being an optimist worked well for me somehow. I never regretted any downfall that happened in my life because I became stronger and I learned from previous mistakes and past difficulties.

I agree with you. However, i'm a realist, I see things for what they are and try to make the best of things when they are bad and take advantage of things when they are good.

Oh, no matter how you put it, a pessimist is one who always looks at the darker side of life whereas, an optimistic one prefers to see only the lighter side of things. They may be opposites, but all of us have inclinations of both. This is the reason why at times, we feel bad and sad. Affected by the things that had gone wrong in our lives. That's the pessimistic side at work. Then we get out of it thinking, 'what am I doing? I can't help make things work out this way.' Picking ourselves up, we try our hand at making things better. We now think that to every problem there is a solution. Now, that is the optimistic side having a takeover.
