    I find pessimism beautiful.

    "Life... is a sea, full of rocks and whirlpools, which man avoids with the greatest care and solicitude, although he knows that even if he succeeds in getting through with all his efforts and skill, he yet by doing so comes nearer at every step to the greatest, the total...

    Why Pessimism?

    I feel like I was put in place where I didn't want to be, Earth. I feel like I was here for a punishment. I come from a poor family, I'm a social outcast who doesn't know how to make it in this world. There is SO MANY things about life that don't like and CANNOT change...

    Currently a senior in high school.

    I have really close friends that i met in high school and I can tell them mostly everything but I feel as if they aren't the kind of friends I'm looking for. This happened to me in middle school also, and so I switched schools merely because I couldn't form a good relationship...

    Anytime I get happy about something,

    I always get slapped in the face later. I've learned from all those times. It's best to not get your hopes up cause if some that bad will happen, it will happen.

    I Feel Like That My Whole Life.

    I have Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. Depression has played a major part in my life. Even when I am in a good mood, I feel pessimistic and always prepare for the worst. From my experience, good things would never happen to me because they never did.

    I am pessimistic. I always expect things to turn out badly and always see the sadder side of things. But I don't mind, in fact I prefer it. Sadness and beauty go hand in hand. Just look at music, art and literature. the sad versions of all these things are the best. I love short...

    In my experience, there are more displeasures,

    hard times, and sucky memories than there are happy times. Life isn't worth it. Not for just a few good memories.

    I can't help it I have always been pessimistic.

    Anyone who has ever read any of my stories will get this vibe quick. I wish I could "see the bright side" and I realize that is the answer to happiness but its easier said than done.

    I am a person who sees the best in everything,

    but gets slapped hardly by the reality. I always try to be as nice as possible to people around me but I feel that they're taking me for a naive girl. No one ever cares if their words hurt. I want to know, does being over-nice is a bad thing? Another thing....I always under...

    I have gotten used to saying I don't have any

    friends. I just don't say it out loud too much. Then people get all defensive saying they're my friends and ****. Don't make me laugh because you're not there when I need you. So don't give me your lies. Call me a pessimist but I'm sticking to my beliefs. And am perfectly happy...

    I look at people in love

    and think to myself, " that won't last". I don't want to be so pessimistic, but I also don't want to be unrealistic

    Whenever you want to think happy thoughts,

    your heart tries to lift itself up with all its might. But there's something that keeps pulling it down. It's not gravity; this is much stronger. And I'm not having any heart condition. Maybe it's just me.
