The idea that everything is best, and all things happen for a greater purpose. In other words, a waste of time.
Oh, look, there's an optimist on the street thinking he will one day be able to walk and live like a normal person when he's a paraplegic with no arms, legs, and the speech ability of Helen Keller.

Get a Optimist mug for your friend Trump.
People who see the world through rose-colored glasses, people who are unrealistic, people who have no actual lives if they think the world is good. Ignorance is Bliss, after all
Optimist: Yay! We're being tortured!
Normal Person: That's not a good thing. I'm in pain, and you probably are, too.
Optimist: Oh my god you bitch/bastard you're such a pessimist this is why nobody likes you and you have no friends

An optimist is usually a person who always remains happy and cheerful despite various problems that arise. Besides being wonderful, joyful people to be around, they can also be dangerously unrealistic and at times, wickedly annoying. That is, if you're a pessimist. Optimists are generally loved and appreciated by society; however they are hated and despised by pessimists. (Who are boring, whining people).
Person: Ah! I just lost my leg!
Optimist: Don't worry! Maybe... you'll become a talented wheelchair basketball player!!

Get a optimist mug for your Aunt Rihanna.
A kind of person who is most often a closet pessimist, and much like a pessimist can not see the virtue or value in any bad experiences. However, unlike a pessimist, who copes with that view by adopting the deluded, jaded notion that everything that can go wrong will go wrong so they aren't disappointed, the optimist follows the even more deluded notion that they will simply never have bad experiences.
Optimist: There's no way we're going to lose!
Pessimist: There's no way we will win...let's just quit while we're ahead...
Realist: I would honestly prefer to win, but it's also no biggie if we lose. Live and learn, right?
Optimist and Pessimist: ...Get out.
