Pessimism is essentially an opposite of optimism and about the person who expects the worst, it is the core belief that the world is a bad and unfavorable place and that things will turn out for nothing. People may have pessimistic life patterns; for example: about the potency of getting a new job, or about their partner forgiving when he/she did silly mistakes.
The foremost question comes into our mind without any conscious effort, the pessimism and negative approaches towards anything affect us directly and indirectly both. As we all know about the famous quote: “a man is social animal” which point out that we people are reliant on each other, we are living a reciprocal life, our moods and emotions are connected with each other. The quality of relationships we maintain in our surroundings should be relevant with our social backgrounds. Our engagement style determines that how we interact, behave, understand others and in exchange process we will attain the same response from the world.
