The Pessimist Vs The Optimist..

A mom and dad are worried about the extreme personalities of their six-year-old twin boys --one's a total pessimist, the other a total optimist. So they took the kids to a psychiatrist.

First, the shrink leads the pessimist into a room piled high with toys and announces, "All of these are yours!"But instead of squealing with delight, the kid bursts into tears. "Why are your crying?" the doctor asks. "Don't you want to play with any of your toys?" "Yes," the boy says, "but I'm afraid I'll break them!"

Then, the psychiatrist takes the optimistic child into a room filled only with horse manure. Rather than run out of the room in disgust, the boy begins jumping up and down with glee, screaming "Bring me a shovel, bring me a shovel!"

"What do you need a shovel for?" the shrink asks.

"Well, with all this manure," the little boy says, "there must be a pony in here somewhere!"

Which child's disposition reflects your outlook for the year? Any lessons learned from the story?

-Story from Nigerian Info FB


  1. I forced myself to become optimistic. Got tired of pulling myself back with my thoughts

    1. Same here! That's what I'm working on this year. Better me.. positive thinking

    2. I'm a realist with a positive more negativity for me this year.


  2. We shld always see opportunity in every difficulty, shying away from all of our problems and challenges won't help us reach our goal.
    Iv always been an optimist tho!

  3. i learnt that every situation that comes our way should be used to our advantage.

  4. Nothing learned Stells...sorry. I'm so excited bout my new year though.


  5. Optimist all the way!

    There is ALWAYS a way out of every situation, except death.

    I've noticed it helps, because I've hardly seen an optimist that gets depressed and stays so.


  6. I used to be a pessimist but now am an optimist .

  7. Being optimistic can take you very far in life..

    i can never be pessimistic about anything at all..Even when the going is tough;i still BELIEVE i would make the best out of the situation..


  8. No I did not learn any lesson I didn't know before. Thank u

    1. I for fear..thought u'd call urself an optimist

    1. By the time he digs up too much manure without seeing horse, him go turn pessimistic. 20% optimist, 40% realist, 40% pessimist.

  10. Sex has turned many ladies into a mystery of
    thinking what they feel for a particular guy is true love.

    You meet a guy, he takes you out; He had a
    great sex with you, it was like heaven to you. He makes you feel happy because you enjoyed him so much
    you start assuming both of you are meant to
    be together as husband & wife.

    You start dreaming of your future with him
    while he's just having fun. Your feelings for him has blindfolded you from seeing things from the reality point
    of view. You find yourself infatuated with him just because you don't want to feel used & dumped.

    Sometimes you need to sit down & ask yourself; what do i really love about this guy?

    Do I see Christ in him? Is he a guy I can boldly take to my pastor? Can I introduce him as my husband to people who
    are responsible? You know the guy is not
    capable of being a good husband & father; yet you want to kill yourself because of him. But sometimes you need
    to differentiate between what you just feel and what you really deserve.

    Don't start dreaming of your future with a guy who is just catching his fun. Don't attach a permanent feeling to a temporal person. Don't open up your heart to
    a guy who doesn't open his bible. Stop chasing
    after a guy who doesn't chase after God.

    Look, Maybe as a lady your lifestyle is not
    pleasing to God, today is your day of salvation. Don't wait till when you marry & divorce before you realize you need Jesus. You don't have to wait till when you become a single mother before you aspire to
    be an evangelist.

    Give your life to Jesus now and He will give
    you a man who will take care of you. You cannot receive anything from God until you first receive His only Son
    because Jesus is everything that God has given for you.

    1. Preach it! After making the same mistake over and over again...

    2. Leave her anon 23:00 let her spread the word #whether she made mistakes or not, for people who has not made any is through her mistakes she learned and now a better person in a better position to preach it.God bless you Aroma, we pray we hear.

    3. Nice
      It applies to men too

    4. Thank you anon 10:34
      Thanks guys

  23. Stella please allow me space to rant ! My mom is making my life uncomfortable! I pay their rents,and hospital bills as she isn't making any money from her petty trading.I pay my sister's fees and everything and I lost my job in dec. I lent 100k to my mom and told her I would need it back by Jan.
    I just asked my mom for the money now and she says she doesn't have and walked out on me.No explanation nothing! My daughter's fees is due next week, my rent is due, biko am I wrong to ask her for my money I lent her? She has never given me back any money lent before but I specifically told her I would need this one back
    I am so angry with her and I just may cut communications with her for months .is my anger justified

    1. Forgive her for your own good and be wiser with your finances next time.
