There’s a thin line between being realistic and being pessimistic.
Most of the time, we cross that line and venture into the dark side. It’s not intentional and (this has been FOREVER used for lack of a better way of explaining it) we’re only human. We get tired, hungry, angry, sad, and we tend to lose sight of the good and the happy.
I think that, sometimes, what we see as a realistic approach to life is something borne out of our pessimism.
How should we deal with that moment in our lives when the line has been crossed?
- Look back on the good and the happy. There’s no need to dwell on the disappointments.
- Make the most out of what you have. Do you know the financial tip (Income – Savings = Spending money) ? It makes wonders.
- Be patient. And have a little faith.
You’ll get through this.
