The question I would like to discuss with you today is “How can I be more optimistic?”. One of the ultimate questions out there. As we are all aware, everything in this world has its pros and cons. It is not a perfect world after all. We call someone an optimist, if their default way of thinking makes them see every situation or event for the pros before the cons. While for pessimists, it is simply the opposite. There is this long held belief in the society that puts optimists as better than pessimists, primarily because they are strongly associated with contentment and gratefulness considering they tend to focus more on the good side of things. However, before asking yourself how to be more optimistic, I want you to firstly make sure that you are not actually buying this belief, and trying to change yourself to be more optimistic just because of this.
