I consider myself an optimist. It’s certainly a ton more fun than being a pessimist. I’ve experienced negative persons and they’re really quite depressing. The sky is always falling for them — nothing is good enough, always something or someone to complain about. I’ve actually gone through my “nothing is positive” phase and I didn’t like myself very much. It’s much more fun and uplifting to be positive and solution-focused.
And being positive includes being accepting of others. One of my recurring hopes is that, as a society, we all work towards making tomorrow a better day than today — a more inclusive day for everyone.
