Optimism.

I'm an optimist.
That means that I tend to look on the brighter side of life, that I don't take put-downs very seriously. I haven't always been this way; in fact, I was a pessimist for a long time and only recently discovered the joys of optimism.
Most of you will say "well, you have to face reality". I can completely say that I do face reality, I just face it in a positive manner and take life as it comes. I find whiny people to be annoying, because usually what they complain about isn't as bad as they think, they just choose to think negatively and not do a thing about it. Always remember, there's someone out there that has it way worse than you.
I remember in 7th grade, I was a real whiny person. Always thinking negatively, and trust me, it's hard doing that. A lot of people in my school were making fun of me, and mostly about my attitude, saying I was "emo" because I was always pessimistic. That's when I realized it's much easier to just be happy and enjoy life, instead of hating it, and people will stop taunting you and realize you really don't care anymore what they think.
Thinking on the sunny side has some perks. People like you a lot more, you have a lot more fun, and there's nothing you can't do if you put your mind to it. Life's ahead of you! Why not face it in a positive way, and have a lot more fufillment? I'm not saying to walk around blinded, thinking everything is always fine and la-dee-da, because it's not. I'm just saying you shouldn't always see the negative in things, and think about the positives more often.
Go out there, find something you love to do, and never look back. Have fun, don't worry, be happy. The next time someone says something negative to you, just smirk and walk away, because you know you're better than that. Trust me. You'll have a lot more fun looking on the bright side.
