I've decided I seem to be a bit of a pessimist at the moment whilst the husband is the optimist.
It could be worse - we could both be self pitying, negative individuals.
The problem lies with me. Clearly.
I see a situation - I look for the bad in it.
He sees an outcome - I see a difficult journey.
He looks ahead - I'm stuck in the here and now.
He has big goals - I get frustrated that we're not there now.
He takes it bit by bit - I get impatient.
He sees the tough times as being short term - I panic that I can't get what I want now.
He's under stress he keeps it contained - I'm under stress I blow like a freaking erupting volcano.
Is this a good thing?
Is this an example of yin and yang?
Is it just that I'm a realist, and maybe actually a little bit boring, who needs to go and free base jump off a high cliff to liven up?
Or maybe I just need to learn to cha cha cha...
So what are you?
Optimist or pessimist?
Do we need both in this world?
