pessimists are the happiest people

optimists are always getting their hopes up, setting high goals, but when they undoubtedly fail, they just have that mouch more to be depressed about. pessimists on the other hand always anticipate the worst and never set their goals high, that way when they fail they have less to be depressed about. as an added bonus, if a pessimists sets their goals low and actually achieves or surpasses them, they will be even happier
