Be Real. Fo sho.

Many of the people closest to me are either cynics or pessimists. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had arguments just because I didn’t buy that something was as bleak or doomed as I was being told it was. What’s funny is that I’m not an optimist. I just believe that sometimes life sucks and sometimes life rocks and that you can just keep focusing on the stuff that rocks and learn from the stuff that sucks. It doesn’t always work. I don’t believe in optimists either. No one leads a truly charmed life and it’s pointless to think that everything is going to be good. Just real.

    i love bad jokes!!!

    cynics usually just see themselves as realists. when they call themselves cynics, it’s only to translate for them optmistic people.

    yes, but if you consistently think that shit is gonna turn out pretty badly or that something did fail even if other people thought there were positives, then you aren’t a realist.

    I think being a realist means that you can see how something is gonna suck, but still be worthwhile and not suck that much or see how something is going to be good, but still have it’s ugly bits.
