Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I’m going to go with a little bit of both. I tend to expect the best out of people, which sounds harsh, but it’s really not. I expect the best because, for the most part, that’s what I’ve received in the past. Yes, I’ve had some very big let downs when it comes to people I care about, but for the most part people have been really good about coming through for me.

But I have to acknowledge the fact that I’ve had some very big let downs in life. I’ve had my trust stomped on and thrown back in my face. And I can’t honestly say that I’ve reacted well 100% of the time, which is why I say a little bit of both. I’ll get depressed for a while or even angry, but eventually I bounce back and start to trust people again.

    I would like to add that “WWJD?” I try to say what would Jesus do? I also learned how to love my enemies or those who do not like me. I also pray for them. I also forgive them even if they do not forgive me. This is how I try to stay focused and positive. I love your ying yang pic! BALANCE! That is something I yet have to master. Great job with your writing post.
