We're discussing whether the glass is half full or half empty. If the glass is perceived half full then they considered you an optimist, and vice versa. I didn't agree. It's because I'm a pessimist, that I'm an optimist. When I'm anxious about something, I turn my problem over to God. But I know He doesn't give me anything I can't handle. So I have something that worries me. I handle it by imagining the worst that can happen. OK, then I make plans to handle that worst scenario. Once I have a plan in place, I can relax, because if I can handle the worst thing that could happen, then I can handle anything.
By the way, when I look at the glass, I always think, "Some bastard stole half my drink."
