Is the glass half empty or is it half full? This is a metaphor that I’m sure everyone is tired of hearing or have heard over and over at some part of their life but let’s take a moment to elaborate on this topic.
If you’re looking at a glass of water and you pour half of the contents out is your glass half empty or is it half full? When someone asks you the question do you see the glass half full or half empty it’s merely to determine your outlook on life. It may be difficult to answer this question using a glass so let’s look at this from another perspective. When you think of your bank account,is your account half empty or it it half full?
If you say the glass is half full then it is perceived that you have a positive outlook on life or you are deemed as optimistic… Yaay you! However, when you see the glass as half empty, you are deemed to be pessimistic. Honestly, the person that sees a glass half empty could also be a realist.
Ultimately, don’t allow others to change your views. Sometimes how you see things in life could be the key to your destiny-THE GAME CHANGER. Live and learn and trust me you will always learn by experience. When you continue to expose yourself to new things and new people your view and beliefs will also change. Don’t be afraid of who you are. Accept who you are and always always always stay true to that person! –LK
