Optimist or Pessimist


I am definitely an optimist and proud of it. Whether the situation is good or bad, I always try to have a positive outlook. The glass is half full, not half empty.


When I was thirteen years old, I was diagnosed with bone cancer. This was a great shock and tragedy. I believe that because I have had a positive attitude, I have gotten to where I am today. Cancer is very scary, but a positive attitude goes a long way. If I would have just curled up in a ball and cried all the time and worried about dying, I don’t believe I would have done as well. With an optimistic outlook, you can take on life’s toughest challenges. As long as there is life, there is hope.


I believe that optimistic people are probably much happier than pessimistic people. It must be so depressing to always look at life from a pessimistic point of view. Even in the worst of circumstances, look on the bright side and be optimistic. If people would just change their perspectives on life, they would see that it’s not really so bad.


In life you have two choices. Will I be an optimist or pessimist? Will I turn lemons into lemonade? Do I see the glass half empty or half full? I believe being an optimist is the best choice.
