people who think being overtly negative and cynical is the same thing as being realistic……..literally bye
having a positive outlook on life doesn’t mean you’re delusional or not in tune or aware of all the atrocities that occur in this world nor the mundane aspects of life. It means that despite all the external circumstances that are not in your control, you still cultivate a strong sense of security within yourself that isn’t defined by what others think or do.
I’m tired of condescending pseudo intellectuals who feel like they have some sort of inherent superiority simply because they hate everything and everyone. You just ultimately hate yourself motherfucker.
The world isn’t terrible, you are.
I’ve been on both sides of this, having been cynical for a number of years myself, and I have one thing to say in response: absolutely.
