The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Optimistic Unicorns

Jul

Sometimes, you just want to wallow in your own crappy mood. Really, you do. I have moments when I just want my emotional weather report to reflect thunderstorms with a 90% chance of lightning. It’s safe to say that my mood is less than stellar and I don’t see a problem with it. 

Unicorns aren’t always welcome.

Now, while I’m in the midst of my moodiness, I have these folks fluttering around with words of wisdom dipped in glitter and sunshine. 

“Smile!”

“You need to perk up.”

I refer to these folks as Optimistic Unicorns, aka walking emotional contradictions. Full of sunshine and the spirit of a well-loved mythical creature, these folks irk my damn nerves. Take all that optimism elsewhere and let my thunderstorm play out.  

I promise I’ll return to my normal self…eventually.
