A realistic optimist firmly believes that things will change generally for the better. They also believe they have control of their lives.
Realistic optimism is about the ability to maintain a positive outlook without denying reality, actively appreciating the positive aspects of a situation without ignoring the negative aspect.
Realistic optimists don’t live in a ‘Pollyanna’ world they have a healthy balanced approach towards life.
