Pessimism of Kindness

My religion is seeing the glass half empty and offering the water inside of it to those who are in need of understanding. I am a pessimist of kindness. Life goes terribly wrong indeed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help a fellow human being find their way towards the light while possessing a little bit of sadness in our souls.

the philosophical cure 
to anxiety 
is not optimism 
but rather pessimism.

 
optimism says 
“the world is beautiful
and there’s no reason to be sad.”

 
pessimism says
“look at all these countries
waging wars  
let’s go get some ice cream
and just listen to some sad records.”
