I am an incurable optimist!
Some people call being always optimistic as toxic positivity. Do I agree with it?
Perhaps, but it would be toxic if I try to force others to see things from my point of view. And I do admit that when my children were younger, I used to try to convince them that things aren’t as black as they thought they were. But now I’ve learned to let other people be however they like.
My own strength lies in my optimistic way of looking at life, always hoping for the best and pragmatically accepting things as they happen. I never pretend that everything is just wonderful or perfect, but I see things as they are and try to find positives in any situation that befalls me or those who are dear to me. I guess making the best of a bad circumstance is also ingrained into my personality.
To me, the optimist is the one who is a realist with hope alive in their hearts. They don’t see everything through rose-colored glasses but are hopeful to find positives in any given situation!
Are you an optimist? How do you deal with life’s disappointments?
