Is life made better by hoping for the best? Is an optimistic or pessimistic attitude self-fulfilling? Is a pessimistic attitude more suited to a realistic assessment of life? Which approach leads to more happiness? Can we be both simultaneously? For answers to these and other questions come and participate in our community discussion.
