    @meu @bubbli @nel @nil
    I think this can be an awesome topic to discuss. please tag your friends if you find it interesting. the first question:
    Are you an optimist one? if yes, to what extends?
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Hasti I think I am not a pure optimistic because I think about negative aspects and consequences before positive ones.
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    My friends say that I am negative towards myself but I am very positive towards others. I like to build people's morale high and seriously I can't take negativity around me unless it is my own
    :D

    Also, as you know being muslim we always have our hopes and faith in Allah. So maybe it takes a little bit of time but at the end we put our faith in Him. Personally, If I face any failure it takes 2 3 days to come back on track.
    :D
    Moreover, I always have faith that whatever happens, happens for the best. If I switch off my mind, my heart would say "you are indeed an optimistic girl"

    @meu based on your comments I guess you are rather realist than pessimist ( as mentioned in your first comment). Having faith to God is a great procedure. When we believe that anything that happens has its own reason ( which finally is beneficial for u), we can easily accept our failure and come back to track ASAP.

    @meu I believe that there is a narrow border between being optimist and being stupid! Sometimes we are optimist towards impossible things! E.g. we have hope we will be honored a scholarship without being eligible for that, without trying to make our CV stronger, Without studying as much as possible to have higher GPA. This is stupidity.
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Hasti I am facing that :D
    I am eligible and hopes but still at the back of my mind I have this thought that many people from whole big world are trying for this. So I keep a balance.
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    And you are right being optimist should be in premises of reality.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,654 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Well I believe hope is the other name of life and it is basically life force that keep you in the main stream. I am optimistic and I learned it the hard way. But after experiencing it I feel more satisfied and happy. So try it once!:)

    The world is beautiful my friends. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,654 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @nel Really! :)

    I used to be very pessimist that with the smallest failures I used to give up. Also I was really afraid of future that I couldn't enjoy the moment. But then I started to change myself. I'm an optimist person now. Hopeful to life and future. You're right @Hasti. Being hopeful without trying hard is stupidity. Hope won't bring you success. Hope will motivate you for success.

    @Hasti stupidity is the the delusion of pessimism. :)

    @meu Really? I passed this level. Wish you luck dear friend.
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @bubbli I really enjoy when I have contact with positive people. I believe that the more optimist friend you have, the more positive energy you will absorb.
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @nel Yep it is :) though without trying and putting effort it is not
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @nil I am really happy for you as you are an optimist now nel. I am an optimist person but some times I pass the mentioned narrow border between stupidity and being optimist. I am trying to be more cautious and know my self properly...
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thank you @Hasti, I need your prayers!
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,654 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Hasti Its all about you not about others. Rumi says "Change yourself and there is a change."
    So first wear the glasses of positivity and see the world through it.:)
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @bubbli That's completely true but I remember a quote from some one I don't remember that you are the average of 5 people close to you. I prefer to be in touch with hard working, optimist and hopeful people.
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @meu I wish the moment that you realize you are honored a scholarship from any university in any country you have applied for :D one awesome moment
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Hasti Haha this is by far the most accurate wish I got. :D
    Have you already got that moment?

    It's always beautiful even we have many problems. We just have to open our eyes to see them.
  • nelnel Posts: 1,125 ✭✭✭✭
    Yes really @bubbli . :)
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @meu I am trying for that beautiful moment, though thanks GOD I have been privileged other opportunities to try for that moment again. I am now stronger than before to fight for it :D

    I think I've mentioned it a few times, but I think you should never stop dreaming and with that, comes being optimistic. I believe things always work out in the end, but this seems to work better when you think positively.
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @mheredge I agree with you. Without dreaming we wont have a goal; without a goal we wont have motivation; without motivation we wont try...and without trying definitely we wont be successful.

    How can you help somebody to be optimist? To be happy and not to think about negative things and past?
  • HastiHasti Posts: 304 ✭✭✭
    @nil The best way that we can help ourselves and also the others is to write ( or tell them to write) all the positive things we currently have in our life on a piece of paper. To cherish our capabilities...even to cherish our failure which have made us stronger and more experienced.
