Pessimism is a mental attitude. Pessimists anticipate undesirable outcomes from a given situation, which is generally referred to as situational pessimism, or believe that undesirable things are going to happen to them in life more than desirable ones. Pessimists also tend to focus on the negatives of life in general or a given situation.
There is an internal dialog we all have with ourselves, processing and catagorizing with each passing moment. What kind of language we use differs drastically; do you use positive or negative descriptors as you filter your world?
This work captures a pessimistic view cherished by its creator.
