To quote my mother the other day—

"It bothers me that most people would consider you a pessimist. I wouldn't! You're one of the most optimistic people I know because you understand how things can be better. Not accepting whatever crap comes out doesn't make you pessimistic, it makes you smart."

I love my mom.
