    Glass Is Not Half Empty Or Half Full!!

    I believe that things will be what they are, and concentrating on just the good doesn't make it just suddenly become good, or focusing on negative does not make one fall apart all the time. I am very tired of hearing people say phoney happy go lucky terms when things are tough...

    Lao Tse Quote

    "In this world, there is nothing softer or thinner than water. But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal. That the weak overcomes the strong, that the hard gives way to the gentle -- this everyone knows. Yet no one acts accordingly."

    I'm not sure if the guy

    that is trying to win my heart fully deserves it.. I don't like clinginess & especially when all they do is sweet talk. sucks to not be able to find the right one.. just don't want to break any more hearts.

    Dad died this time last year.

    Hit by truck. Never asked why. A man was hit by a truck. That man was my dad. That's it. Sad as it may sound, it's the reality of it.

    I'm Not Pessimistic.

    I'm getting very sick of idealistic (the opposite of realistic) people acting as if all problems can be solved by one person's involvement.  They say things like "If you don't like the government, then vote!  Make a difference.  Get involved."  But...

    Optimists Think I'm Pessimistic...

    ...and pessimists think I'm an optimist. I guess that puts me in between. I'll hope for the best and be prepared for the worst, and that way, if the worst doesn't come about I'll be pleasantly surprised, and if the best doesn't happen, I won't be disappointed. Jeez. Having said...

    Right In The Middle.

    I know I am because pessimists find me optimistic and optimists find me pessimistic and both types tend to annoy me in large doses.

    And They Call Me Negative...

    If I got a nickel for everytime I hear I'm negative, I would be richer than Bill Gates. No matter where I am, no matter what the topic is, people who don't know me that well always think I'm negative! For example: last week, me and my wife went with some of her friends to one of...

    Life balances itself,

    more or less. Whenever something good happens that brightens up your day, something is always waiting to bring you back down. An inverse karma.

    I like to have faith in people,

    however sometimes I wish I could just take the sons of donkeys to a faraway place where they can never dumb down society anymore. But being a realist I know that the sheeple of the world just can't be helped.

    We all change. I get that

    and those around me need to know that I will not hate you if you decide to move in another direction without me. Just be honest. I'd admire you for it. I get it. I certainly do.

    When people ask if I think the glass is half

    A pessimistic person sees the glass half empty.

    An optimistic person sees the glass is half full. A realist sees that it's just half a glass.
