    I'm a little bit of both. It comes and goes. I try really hard to be an optimist, though.

    More of a realist. This is how it is and we can do this about it.

    pessimist. Unless I'm with my girlfriend. Then I try to be more optimistic!

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I think I have times when I'm a massive pessimist, and times when I'm a big optimist.

    The glass isn't half full or half empty it just has water in it. I guess that makes me a realist or neutralist. I dunno.

    I am utterly optimistic. I have very few 'down' days, and when I do they usually hit pretty hard. But most of my days are about seeing the good things.

    Depends on my mood, the day, what else is going on, and what the issue is

    When it comes to things about myself I'm usually a pessimist, but when it comes to things about others I'm usually an optimist

    I'm definitely an optimist. I have down days like everyone else, but ultimately I'm blissfully happy just about all the time. Getting my anxiety under control (via medication, mostly) was a huge step in that direction. Life is good
