Pessimism is Smart

Are you an optimist, a pessimist, or something else?

Oh, I’d say I’m probably a pessimist. In any situation, I’ll come up with the worst-case scenario and plan accordingly. I don’t call myself a pessimist in my head though . . . I call myself smart.

Do I want to be caught unprepared? Absolutely not. Do I want to get my hopes up for something? No way.

I’ll sometimes pretend to be optimistic to make other people feel better though.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?
