To tell you the truth: i am in this position too. i am always a pessimist, every time something good happens i try to find the bad in it. i question everything and end up unhappy. anything that people tell me i also take to heart and store that information in my head, only to use it for future reference. about a year ago, i started asking myself: why? why cant i trust anything and always find bad in everything? after months of questioning i found out why. it is because every time i trusted someone they would always go behind my back and do something stupid. everyone was always telling me how dumb i am or something that i am doing was dumb. eventualy i just grew up into not trusting people and thinking others will put me down, and how to not act dumb, etc......
the truth is that you are who you are. people develope their personalities based on past experiences. your bad experiences have caused you to stop seeing the good in things. so to answer your question: there is no way to be optemistic. you wont just wake up one day and say the glass is half full when your whole life it has been half empty. you cannot change your past but you can change your future. if you try to trust people, then eventualy maby one day things will turn around for you and things wil start going good. once that hapens you might just become optemistic. just remember: you are who you are, and you dont need to change that. good luck with school and i hope you lead a more optemistic life.
Exapmples of Optimism?
When Americans elected Herbert Hoover President in 1928, the mood of the general public was one of optimism and confidence in the United States economy. Most people believed that national prosperity would continue indefinitely. In his acceptance speech for the Republican party nomination for the presidency, Hoover had said:
"We in America today are nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before in the history of any land. The poorhouse is vanishing from among us."
Many Americans shared Hoover's optimism at the beginning of 1929. An editorial in the New Year's edition of the New York Times on January 1, 1929, for example, stated:
"It has been twelve months of unprecedented advance, of wonderful prosperity. If there is any way of judging the future by the past, this new year will be one of felicitation and hopefulness."
Remember that all the above was before the Big crash in Oct. 1929.
what month is october?
september 24- October 23 it is libra
october 24- nov 23 its scorpio
Libra: They have good critical faculty and are able to stand back and look impartially at matters which call for an impartial judgment to be made on them. But they do not tolerate argument from anyone who challenges their opinions, for once they have reached a conclusion, its truth seems to them self-evident; and among their faults is an impatience of criticism and a greed for approval. But their characters are on the whole balanced, diplomatic and even tempered.
Librans are sensitive to the needs of others and have the gift, sometimes to an almost psychic extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their companions and meeting them with their own innate optimism - they are the kind of people of whom it is said, "They always make you feel better for having been with them." They are very social human beings. They loathe cruelty, viciousness and vulgarity and detest conflict between people, so they do their best to cooperate and compromise with everyone around them, and their ideal for their own circle and for society as a whole is unity.
Their cast of mind is artistic rather than intellectual, though they are usually too moderate and well balanced to be avant garde in any artistic endeavor. They have good perception and observation and their critical ability, with which they are able to view their own efforts as well as those of others, gives their work integrity.
In their personal relationships they show understanding of the other person's point of view, trying to resolve any differences by compromise, and are often willing to allow claims against themselves to be settled to their own disadvantage rather than spoil a relationship. They like the opposite sex to the extent of promiscuity sometimes, and may indulge in romanticism bordering on sentimentality.
Their marriages, however, stand a good chance of success because they are frequently the union of "true minds". The Libran's continuing kindness toward his or her partner mollifies any hurt the latter may feel if the two have had a tiff. Nor can the Libran's spouse often complain that he or she is not understood, for the Libran is usually the most empathetic of all the zodiacal types and the most ready to tolerate the beloved's failings.
The negative Libran character may show frivolity, flirtatiousness and shallowness. It can be changeable and indecisive, impatient of routine, colorlessly conventional and timid, easygoing to the point of inertia, seldom angry when circumstances demand a show of annoyance at least; and yet Librans can shock everyone around them with sudden storms of rage. Their love of pleasure may lead them into extravagance; Libran men can degenerate into reckless gamblers, and Libran women extravagant, jealous and careless about money sometimes squander their wealth and talents in their overenthusiasm for causes which they espouse. Both sexes can become great gossipers. A characteristic of the type is an insatiable curiosity that tempts them to enquire into every social scandal in their circle.
