What's does being a pessimistic person feel like?

When you see life at its worst, is it really all that bad?
When you see life at its worst, is it really all that bad?
I've been stuck with an optimistic mindset for pretty much all my life! When something terrible comes up, my mind likes to think of the best outcome every time, even if the final outcome doesn't end up that way every time. I always have hope in believing that no matter how bad a situation may get, everything will turn out alright; like a glass half-full kind of attitude! But what does the opposite end of the spectrum feel like; when you expect the worst from every outcome? Does it bring you relief when you set your expectations low, does it open your eyes to a more, realistic point of view or does it drain you constantly? I'd like to know more about pessimistic people in general since I feel I get rose-colored eyes from a lack of perspective on this side of life.
