Yes there is.....

luck is random, it exists and is there for one an all to enjoy.

However, if one is a pessimist, and concentrates only on the darker issues of his journey, he does not see good things pass him by...

on the other hand, an optimist, is always on the lookout, and as soon as something good happens his way, he grabs the moment.

That is the difference.

yay

I'm a little bit of both...

I can be a little pessimist when it comes to dating (I've had so many dates in 4 years that I don't trust anything or anyone nowadays). It takes me a while to relax (that's why I like bars or restuarants on a first date...shoooo....RELAX).

But I get optimistic when it's going good and he wants to see me again (and we are still seeing each other after 2 months).

I hope for the best and crave it.Sadly we dont always get what we want out of life so i would put myself as a realist rather than in the two categories.

What i truly believe in is never underestimate human kinds efforts to steer towards stupidity and then try to blame it on someone else when the wheels fall off the apple cart.

People have to wake up and take responsibility for their actions.

Here's some optimistic beer to cheer on some of the people that require some dutch courage to do whats right as the conscience hust have gone for a walkcheers cheers cheers

realistic optimist seem to be a cathegory, wowlaugh

does it mean that if you were a doctor you'd just say: "she's gonna die soon"? laugh

if so, then that's not what the thread is abouttongue

being realistic is not the opposite of optimist
