“The bottom line is that not everyone is an optimist. There are those of us that are pessimists or what I call realists. The crap seems to keep coming and no matter what one tries to do to stop it, it keeps coming. Troubles are multiplying for a lot of folks and the saying is true that misery loves company and then there is the fact that Pessimists and Optimists just can’t get along, because they irritate each other to no end.”
Very interesting comment. Thank you!
I tend to attract depressive people. I’ve never thought of them as pessimistic, though. We seem to balance each other. This seems more like some people expect to get along with others, some people do not.
I got my philosophy from my grandfather, Henry. He told me that most people were good. He said you should treat everyone as a friend until and unless they proved to be disagreeable. I’ve done this all my life and it’s served me beautifully. Your expectations have a lot to do with what actually occurs in your life.
Another point: I could never do this job if I did not feel confident I could relate to whoever might hire me. This is people from all over the world!
My grandfather really set me up for success on this front. I not only expect to get along with a stranger. I expect to enjoy a mutual benefit from the interaction, one hundred percent of the time. It’s a rare that things go badly.
This may be courtesy the Venus Mars sexitle in my chart. People underrate things like that.
Are you an optimist or a pessimist (realist)? When meeting someone new, do you expect to be able to connect with them in a way that is positive? What’s the astrology?
