5 Ways Pessimism Boosts Well-Being

5 Ways Pessimism Boosts Well-Being

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 15:07:43 in Healthy Living

“You can look at that way or you could think about it another way. Pessimists are more accepting of the negative aspects of other humans and life in general. We are more open to life being both negative and positive and when hard times enter a marriage we don't just bail because we know that it is a natural part of life to experience ups and downs. We know that EVERYONE and EVERY MARRIAGE will have its problems so we don't fool ourselves in to thinking there will be some PERFECT partner elsewhere to make us PERFECTLY happy. I find people that INSIST on positive experiences and outcomes to be immature and often very shallow.”

“Good article. I'm GRATEFUL to not always be super happy and positive. Overly optimistic people seem so shallow to me some times. I'm SICK to death with the "BE POSITIVE" motto being shoved down my throat. I'm here to be one with life and all of the experiences and emotions that entails.. That is good and bad and everything in between. There is NOTHING WRONG with me because I have an unhappy thought, or that I have recognized the negative side of life and deal with it in my way. I don't want to add to the problems of life by making those problems A PROBLEM that I need to fix by being positive.. I accept life on its terms. If I am unhappy for a period of time THAT IS OKAY! "BE POSITIVE" is oppressive. It tells people not to experience life fully, to deny sadness, pain, loss, disappointment, and the like. Those are part of life experience.”

“It's good for oily skin, it has anti bacterial properties so it's good for preventing zits, and it's high in anti-oxidants. It's also great for hair and scalp because it increases circulation and helps hair growth.”

“Been doing this for years. I make my own rose water by gathering my garden roses, crush them and let the steep in water in a sunny spot for several days. Works great. I also like to make calendula water, rosemary water, Lavender water, and many others. They all have different benefits. I've used to rose water to make rose flavored short bread. Interesting and nice flavor but not something I would rave about. Lavender is good for cooking and baking too.”

“My husbands ex tried to friend him on facebook. We both were confused as to why? It's a no brainer. It's just borrowing trouble to hang out with your ex. It's over. Why do you need to be friends? You don't. If you do then you don't need to be with your current partner because you're willing to invite trouble into the situation. People that don't know how to protect their relationships are just stupid and in my opinion undeserving or unable to really have them. Fools.”

“Life coaches think they invent these skills and habits and are SO EXCITED to share their magical formula that makes everything PERFECT for them and of course for you too.. We don't know ANYTHING BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT. You sound like a naive little girl proclaiming such things. Honesty, intimacy, and friendship are good recipes for good marriages. They tend to be very honest but it's not radical in my opinion and it doesn't fool proof your marriage from having problems. Give me a break. I bet she's been married less than a few years and she thinks she's some sort of expert. Life coaches really are some of the most insufferable people on the planet”

It wouldn't be that difficult as hers is not that great. She doesn't look fantastic to me.”

“Always do. I find it sickening. My least liked major holiday. Celebrating gluttony, the genocide of indigenous people, and the cruelty of factory farms. IT'S SICK! The only thing that I appreciate about it is the fact that it somewhat takes the place of a traditional, pagan, harvest festival but nobody cares about where their food comes from anymore. There are no lean times. Many people eat like it's a holiday every day. Thanksgiving in that regard is just redundant. It's merely a fat football fans holiday now.. Nothing respectable about it.”

“It's not odd to misspell words from time to time. I'm sure you've done it. Petty much? Guess the truth hurts. I'm not upset with whiny infertile women. I am disgusted with their self-pity and self absorption. We all have disappointments in life and we also, all have OPINIONS. I am entitled to mine. I do not have to get over anything. I don't care about what concerns you regarding my response. This comments section is for sharing thoughts and opinions. If you do not like them you are free not to read them.”

“What you said is true.  And I am free to not read them.  But, how do I know if I don't like them unless I've read them?  A dilemma, wouldn't you say?  A conundrum of sorts.  

I've lived 70 years and have had my share of disappointments, including infertility.  I'm not new to this.  That said, I feel your comment was harsh, even for a blog.”

“It's not devestating unless you CHOOSE to feel that way. Women with infertility far too often try to make their disease out to be THE WORST thing that could befall a woman. It's not. Not having children is a DISSAPOINTMENT and we all have to deal with those in life. Stop with the melodramatic pity party already. And YES ADOPTION IS A LEGITIMATE ALTERNATIVE. Stop insisting otherwise.”

“Odd that the one word you misspelled was "DISSAPOINTMENT", and in caps.

It's true, we all have to deal with disappointment at one time or another. That's life. What concerns me more is your over-reaction to a situation that has nothing to do with your life. Get over it and go on with what you were doing before you got so upset that you felt the need to post what people who are not you should do.”

Hinckley Yummy Mummy on Nov 12, 2013 at 17:30:39

“I assume that you have never been in the position of trying unsuccessfully for a baby.Yes there are far worse things out there in the world, but unfortunately infertility can and does become all consuming. Adoption may be a legitimate alternative, but it is not the same as having a biological child of your own.
I am happy for you that you have never found yourself in the position that many of us have. Think yourself lucky not to have travelled the journey that so many have to travel each day”

“Cold cereal is gross for the most part. Once in awhile I get a craving for it AT NIGHT as a sort of dessert. I'll have Panda puffs or koala crisps (organic versions of junk food) about twice a year but it holds no appeal for breakfast, yuck. I like hot cereal if any cereal at all. Old fashioned oatmeal with some walnuts, berries, and maple syrup but mostly I just eat a little fruit or a green smoothie/juice.”
