“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.” 
― 
Noam Chomsky   

In today’s world life has become so fast that no one has even a single second to listen to issues of other person. Such worst situation has proved a negative attitude of people towards each other. Every one needs someone who should listen to issues and complexities of one’s life. Such reasons have given more space to people to become ignorant and pessimist in life. A pessimist is a man who thinks everybody is as nasty as him, and hates them for it.  No. of suicide cases, murder, robbery, rape cases etc have increased enormously in the society. We have such issues, reports them but never sort out solutions to resolve such issues. Counseling should be done so that people become familiar to the beauty of society and relationships but unluckily we have failed to adjust any issues.

To me an optimistic person is the one who has experienced beauty at every step of his life; beauty of relationships. There are different levels of optimism. As by the creation of a life God has filled his matter with purity and softness but it’s up to us that how we behave in our life. Once in my own life I had feeling of being the most pessimist person of the world. The reason behind such feeling was that I was standing at that point of life where I became hopeless from everything and considered myself to be the most unlucky person of the world. I was 18 years old by that time, my wish of 18 years just finished in game of 2 hours. At that time I decided to finish my life, I just wanted to destroy everything. I realized the reason why people commit suicide. But thanks to God, at that time I met the angel of my life, my teacher, who helped me a lot in getting out of this worst situation. She made it possible by counseling and by realizing me the worth of me. Only those who experienced the worst can achieve the impossible. From that day till today I have never become pessimist in my life.

One should become a kind of person always having positive attitude towards life no matter which kind of situation one’s facing. Choose to be optimistic; it feels good. Having love for nature, loving the creations of God, admiring the beauty and most importantly listening to others and discussing your issues (sometimes sharing has its own worth). We all are beauty of this world, God has created this world for us to do good deeds, feeling others problems and sharing burdens of the disappointed ones. The universe is a pretty big place. If it’s just us. Winston Churchill said that “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” We should also spend our life keeping this quote in our mind. Opportunities never knock; we have to find out the ways for opportunities. Life is so beautiful; we just have to change our point of view about life.

    The title is somewhat confusing ! However, given that it is a personal account of a life that went from unhappiness and suicidal ideations to one of optimism, one can forgive the title.
