Oh Zoe... we're two of a kind.. welcome to Pollyanna World !
Always have been, always will.. because that's what I CHOOSE, and that's how I thrive, and that's how I feel best about me and the world around me.
As Mary said above..it's my world, and I LIKE it that way !
Only difference is I never had the depressions. I can't even imagine what real depression is. Not to say I haven't had a "down day" here and there.. or was depressed "short term" over a specific situation which was sad or upsetting.. but the real depression that afflicts so many that I read about here.. I have never experienced it, nor can imagine it.
But yes.. the world needs Pollyannas and I'm happy to be one.
If I end up getting screwed in the end, or disapppointed.. well, at least I was blissfully (perhaps even ignorantly) happy for the duration, rather than being miserable, suspicious, mistrusting, unhappy the entire time.. with the same end result.. get what I mean? :chuckle
