Hey everyone. Just me again. So, I was just going through my normal routine when I felt the presence of some bad things in my life. I was worried, confused, andgry, and sad. Well, now, I've realized that's not ok. I've begun taking a very optimistic look on life, and I'm hoping there are more people like me out there. If there are, this can just be a spot for us to talk! Forumception if you will. :P Thanks, everyone!

Heya! :P.

I've had a similar experience recently, in light of my stepdad leaving. I've accepted the fact that I can't control all the bad stuff, and I need to stay positive.

So yeah :)

*sigh* I try.  I used to consider myself a huge optimist.  But now...I dunno.
I still tend to look on the bright side of things, but I find myself, more and more, getting wrapped up in my fears, and my worries, and the state of things.  Advice?  I really REALLY want to be an optimist, for my own well-being...

Well, I don't really know what to tell you. The fact that you want to be a happier person seems like it must be a really good thing. I know it's not always so easy to put it into practice, but I'm glad you're trying. I think the key is that you know you won't ALWAYS be happy. Because then you'd be lying to yourself, let's be honest here. But I think the important thing is that you know there are happy times ahead, even if you aren't happy now. It's that sense of anticipation, or looking forward to something. You have to remember that there it's always darkest just before you turn on the light. It'll be ok. That's honestly the best advice I can give. I hope it helped. SO don't necessarily always be a cheery optimist, but know that there are times ahead when you will be.

Thanks again,

Well, I am glad I could help. I didn't really know if that was going to be helpful or not. I'm really happy that I managed to answer some questions. That's what I like to do. And I'm honoured that you would want to add anything I say to an inspiration document. :-)
