"The glass is half full" and "the glass is half empty" - I'm sure you've heard those sayings before. But, which one of them fits you?
I have to admit, I'm more of "the glass is half empty" kind of gal. This drives my husband crazy - he says that I am too pessimistic and negative and he thinks I shouldn't be that way. He subscribes to "the glass is half full" notion.
It's not that I'm all doom-and-gloom and negativity - I'm certainly not. "The glass is half empty" to me means I'm just more accepting to any challenges or bumps in the road that may arise. It is not that I automatically expect bad things to happen or want them to happen, but I realize that they could and do happen. This gives me a feeling of comfort and more control over handling these bumps in the road. I tend to have a very analytical personality, wanting to be rational and in control at all times. I think the "glass half empty" just goes along with that. Maybe it's not the best way to look at things but it helps me minimize the stress in my life. It helps me to feel ready for whatever may come.
Does that make sense?
Which saying best describes your personality? How do you handle bumps in the road?
