100 Words 26 Emotions – #15 Optimism

Optimism

/ˈɒptɪmɪz(ə)m/

noun

hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success of something.

If that’s the dictionary definition of ‘OPTIMISM’, then is it a pessimist’s attitude to give up at times?

I like to believe that

sometimes holding on to something that might not lead anywhere, no matter how positive, hopeful or confident you are is not as great as we would like to believe it is.

Whether it be a relationship, a job, a material object or an emotion – sometimes it is in our best interest to just give up and let things go.  

That’s not PESSIMISM!
