What else does Optimistic Pessimism mean?

  • You may think that the end result of an event will be pleasant, but the reality is that it won’t. So your artificial smile or laughter cannot be separated between real and fake. You will eventually live a happy and carefree life, but you may not realize that it is possible to be as miserable as them. You just don’t show it as much in public. Your glass contains water. It doesn’t matter if it’s half-full or empty, it has water and is constantly being filled. (in Community Dictionary, added by Cheesecake)
