10 Reasons Why It’s Actually Better to Be a Pessimist

Don’t worry if you’re not an optimist and let me give you 10 main reasons why it’s actually better to be a pessimist.

I don’t want you to think that is wrong to be an optimist, but it’s most definitely better and safer to be a pessimist.

Now I’m not saying that you should go nuts and expect to die every time you walk out the door, but the perfect dose of pessimism is more than welcomed in your life.

And it will help you in many aspects of your life, it will improve a lot of your skills and it will actually protect you from some of the worst feelings one can experience.

So, let me present to you another perspective and help you better appreciate life as a pessimist.

10.You’re not going to be disappointed

Let’s start with the best thing about being a pessimist.

I think we can all agree that being disappointed is one of the hardest feelings one can deal with, it’s like a strong punch in the stomach.

But if you’re a pessimist, the good news is that you will never really feel that pain. Of course, there will be times when you’ll be disappointed, but the feeling will be not even close to what an optimist would feel if things go wrong.

Why? Because you were already expecting the worst, so nothing can really hit you that hard if it doesn’t go the right way.
