So if you haven’t already guessed by now, I’m a pessimist with pessimistic filling.
If you catch yourself rolling your eyes whenever someone says something fluffy and overly optimistic (*cough cough* delusional)…then you probably belong in the ANTI-optimism club with me:
The Anti-Optimism Club. On Wednesdays We Wear Black.
There are TWO good things pessimism will earn you:
- You’re usually pretty realistic about what’s ACTUALLY possible IRL.
- Your standards are real low. Like rock bottom low. So when something good DOES actually happen, it’s *fucking exciting as hell*
But there’s one super shitty thing I HATE about being a pessimist:
I CONSTANTLY catch myself thinking, “this isn’t possible. Why should I even bother? ”
If I actually LISTENED to those thoughts, I’d be working a corporate job, being paid (WAY) less than my male counterparts, with a verbally abusive boss and a (probably empty) bottle of vodka in my bottom drawer.
⇡ This is exactly where I would be if I listened to myself. ⇡
You gotta know when to listen to that voice. And it’s usually telling you something ISN’T possible because you secretly don’t want to put in the effort.
Sounds terrible, but it’s true: your brain doesn’t like to be exhausted. It doesn’t WANT to do hours of work, or solve that complex problem that involves actually sitting down and thinking.
Your brain wants to watch Netflix and sleep 8 hours a day.
