I am a pessimist by nature. So, when things go wrong, despair just boils over in me. At this time, I am plagued by people getting me to think about worst case scenarios!! That essentially puts my paranoia on overdrive! The what-ifs…even those that I don’t think of people come up with! (and I do come up with a lot of them myself!!) So, one can imagine how hopeless things become at that point.
Well, learnt a new word though 🙂
Welt·schmerz [velt-shmerts] –noun German. : sorrow that one feels and accepts as one’s necessary portion in life; sentimental pessimism.
Sounds nice does it not? Well, let me get back to my world of what ifs and what if nots hoping not to drown as a result! 🙂
