Whenever you have problems and you feel bad, sad, or depressed, or there's just something you're worried about, do you think of the positive side more or the negative side of things? I think it was yesterday, I recited in class ...the teacher asked something like "Are you contented about your school fair, I know friendships were tested during the school fair ....... " <---- our class USED TO BE a class you would really call a class because everyone cooperates and things like that and everyone is comfortable with each other, everybody is supportive and nobody is left out.. but something happened and poof! we are no longer that class and it was kind of evident during the fair preparations.... and so.. I raised my hand and answered "I did not regret anything because even though we didn't win anything during the school fair, I understand that people in our class did not go during our class fair preparations because they all had valid reasons (some have different committees, part of the student council, debate team and etc..) and I know they did not come because they do not want to" and she told me... it's good to be positive and she's thankful that i'm positive but sometimes we have to be objective and so.... i know being positive should have limitations but my explanation of my positivity is this: well whenever I have problems and when I am down, most of the times I don't get the comfort I need from people, I look into the positive side of things.. I mean if I have a problem and I am already feeling low why would I like to make myself feel worse? there's always the bright side .. and there are a lot of things to be thankful for.. so I choose to remind myself that there are a lot of beautiful things in life. and, I don't mean forgetting about my problems. so what can you say about positivity and being objective/ realistic?
