Visualize (Whirled Peas)

It seems there’s a lot less to lose

in pessimism than in optimism.

If you’re pessimistic and things

turn out well, you’re surprised

and overjoyed at your good fortune.

If you’re optimistic and things don’t

turn out so well, you’re disappointed

whereas the pessimist is just “right”.

My thinking may be a little

twisted but I don’t like to be

let down.

Not always are my expectations

low or apathetic because I

create what I think about.

I would like my life to go “well”.

Yet, sometimes it’s hard to

see a successful outcome without

feeling like I’m and imposter, a liar!

Faking it is not being “real”, really

how I’m thinking, what I’m believing.

I guess I could go against myself &

pretend things ar going to turn out

well–even though I know better!

I think my brain needs an

overhaul/makeover/or whatever.

Or, I should just give up pessimism

and take my chances!
