By Optimist I mean someone who is happy, enjoying life, smiling, being cheerful, positive, or really just anyone that goes by being an optimist.
Look, you should defiantly not hate a pessimist either. But..the next person that I hear/see rolling their eyes at me, laughing at me, saying "You wouldn't understand"to me needs to shut up.
Firstly, Optimists aren't people that are constantly happy, and never feel pain, most optimists are people that have gone through tragedy, pain, maybe their pet died last week, maybe they have severe anxiety or depression yet are still optimistic because they have hope or that's how they cope. Either way they are still people. They aren't fake go lucky people that experience no trauma or sadness and got off lucky, many are people that could have more problems or less problems than you.
Yes, cheerful people can come off as annoying, impolite, and childish but it doesn't mean they don't have thoughts, feelings and other emotions. They just want to be happy, so why must we shun them down, we look at them and think "Wow they are so happy and cheerful its so annoying" But don't you ever think "..Its a really cool skill to have" but instead most think, "Nah I'd rather be edgy and emotional" Keep in mind I don't have people that see negative and only negative...for I guess some people have really bad issues, that they can't see hope, or maybe they just are naturally pessimistic, but for gods sakes, just because you are upset doesn't mean you should laugh and tell happy people that "You don't understand" or "You're too idiotic" anything like that.
If you are wondering why I'm talking about this topic its because I have noticed mainly with teenagers that many of them get highly annoyed by someone who sees the good in the world and wants to stay happy, I've seen many who call people that smile annoying, people that are nice "Too nice".
It's quite annoying because these teenagers don't seem to understand that the people they are insulting could actually snap because of you.
Why do you want to promote negativity..why do you want to romanticize depression and anxiety and make it seem like a bad thing, why do you want to joke about killing yourself and anyone who doesn't say that automatically is a annoying popular kid or too innocent?
And who is to say that an optimist can't say jokes of that.
Why hate on the people that actually have hope in the world, why shit on people who are happy, why assume that they don't understand your pain? You do know humour is a coping mechanism?
Clingy - Dealt with past trauma of being lonely, excluded or other.
Stupid - Probably notices all their mistakes but is too stressed with other things or something else.
Annoying - Either thought they were too shy, are low key really mad at the world, have a wild imagination, or something else.
Too nice - Someone who may of thought themselves as too rude and wanted to prove they weren't, someone who wants to impress others, could have anxiety or depression or anything else.
Would you rather live in a world where everyone assumes the worst constantly?
"I have hope because somebody has too."
