I wrote this for those of us with a more balanced and rational perspective on all things in life, who feel alone in a world dominated by optimists/people who are kidding themselves.
If you’ve ever hated someone for being too positive, you’re not alone.
If you’ve ever had a dream that you didn’t pursue because you know you don’t have the resources, support, or life situation to realistically succeed, you’re not alone.
If you ever did successfully pursue a seemingly impossible dream and then found out your dream sucks, you’re not alone.
If you’ve ever felt shitty when shit happens, you’re not alone.
If you’ve ever said something stupid to someone who just received some bad news, to try and be comforting even though you know what you said isn’t helpful, but you said it anyway because you’re at a loss for words and society dictates you say something positive…you’re not alone.
Dedicated to my fellow pessimist friend, Erin.
