    No One's Said Anything So Far...

    But here I go... I'm the kind of person optimists run from in terror. I guess if I were a cartoon character I'd have a raincloud following me above my head... I can't ever see the bright side of a situation... If somebody compliments me, I immediately criticize myself. It's...

    Bad Thing, Good Thing, Bad Thing Again.

    It's a constant loop. First I thought, "Something good happened, woo hoo!" but then something bad would come along and be worse than the good thing. Then I started thinking, "Something good happened, ug. Now something bad will happen." I felt that I was thinking the wrong way...

    Thinking Negatively

    I'm not sure that I portray myself to be negative, but I definitely think negatively. I listen to negative music also. I like thinking this way sometimes though, because it makes me feel rational. Most things in the world seem to be negative to me and I feel like because I think...

    Expect The Worst, If It Happens Your Already Prepared...

    I Work On This Every Day

    I struggle with this, catching myself when I have NO intention of being a downer, but saying something so closed-off and sadly hopeless.  I think positive thoughts and encourage others, but when I'm in a mood of feeling down, there's rarely an easy recovery.

    I Call It Realism, But Still

    I'm the type of person that likes to be this way...it's no news that in this world we live in it's better to be realistic...I consider myself to be just that.. However I must admit that several time it goes beyond simple realism and becomes real, dangerous, self-destructive...

    I See the Down Side of Things

    I always do! I always see things not working out and just the down side of all things. Like this move; I don't see me being happy or things improving. I see my kids depress and miserable and everything. I know tons of things are going to go wrong; just the down side!
