Sage: Is the glass half full, or half empty?

So, life sucks.
Yes, I'm aware.
Too bad for the rest of you who have yet to reach said conclusion.
There is a certain point in which one begins to recognize the deep inescapable depression that is life. Now, this is not to say that one is depressed, only that life IS depression, and one's own personal sanity is dependant on the outlook with which one views it. There are three lenses through which life can be viewed - impartially, optimistically, or pessimistically. Of course one would think that the optimistic will lead the best, most providential lives of the three. This assumption is awful and, more often than not, will bring about inauspicious results. If one always anticipates the best out of life, one will often be disappointed. It is rather obvious that a pessimistic outlook can only be detrimental to one's experience throughout life. However, it is more likely to have one's expectations exceeded with such a view. Whereas, if one goes through life with an impartial view on life's numerous and varied occurrences, one will never be disappointed with the often negative outcome. In conclusion, I recommend to live one's life with little, if any prospects, and therefore, never feel the heavy depression that is pressing down on us all...
