for some reason i always have been
Today I had my final GCSE English Literature paper and everyone kept asking me why I was so happy.
Happiness is great, am i right?
Why be so happy, if you don't get your hopes up you can't be disappointed
About the future.
The nice thing about being a pessimist is that you are never disappointed, and you can always be pleasantly surprised.
It's better to get hurt when you are knowledgeable that there is always a possibility that you will get hurt; than get hurt when you're up in the sky with no doubt that you'll forever stay with the rainbows and butterflies.
The best way to prepare for disappointment is pessimism, and disappointment is inevitable.
