Pessimistic Or Realistic ???

Are you a pessimistic or a realistic person.   A pessimistic person  is one who sees negativity in every situation. Pessimism is a negative or depressive mental attitude in which an undesirable outcome is anticipated from a given situation. Whether that be the case or not.Pessimistic Or RealisticPessimists tend to focus on the negatives of life in general.

A realistic person may sometimes be accused of being a a pessimistic person whereas they evaluate by life experiences rather than preconceived notions. A realistic person is merely someone who view or evaluate a situation from all sides. Look equally at the pros and cons before drawing a conclusion.

Oftentimes life situations create what’s labelled as pessimistic people. For example; if an ethnic minority person is constantly denied opportunities and eventually develop a callous attitude toward life then that’s not a a pessimistic person. That’s one being realistic but too often people call this Pessimism.

One of the first philosphers to approach pessimism was Hegesias of Cyrene, a Cyrenaic philosopher, the Cyrenaics forming one of the earliest Socratic schools of philosophy. He argued that happiness is impossible to achieve and maintain, and that the goal of life was the avoidance of pain and sorrow.

Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
