Pessimistic Parents

Hi, if your parents are a pessimistic person like they keep on talking negative things to you. For pessimistic friends, we can ignore them if they are always very pessimistic but for parents, it is different. What would you do if they are very pessimistic and you can't choose to ignore them?

Re: Pessimistic Parents

Mine are the same. Simple.. I just rolled my eyes and in my head I just said, "one day... one fine day.."

It doesn't matter if people are like that. You yourself just have to be optimistic. Just show them when you made it.

Re: Pessimistic Parents

Yeah but let say if you are Optimistic in front of them, then they install pessimistic pressure on you, would you still be Optimistic in front of them? and worst still, if you are still Optimistic, they insult you for being Optimistic, what would you do?

Re: Pessimistic Parents

No. no.. I don't show them my optimism. I just don't care about the fact they're not encouraging. Maybe it's just me but I'm more driven when even my own family don't believe that I could do the things that I'm planning to.

It's quite disheartening that my mum seems to shoot down my ideas but I just want to try anyway. I mean, you won't know unless you try. You might not like it but still, you have to try. It's not like I'm trying out drugs or doing stupid stuff. I'm just "experimenting" on what I want to do. Sort of like figuring out what you want for your future. I'm not smart but I enjoy new experiences.

In the end, doesn't matter what others think. I believe it all comes down to you. I know for the fact that my mum just want me to help out the family, income-wise. So, for me, when I'm able to even though I'm doing what my mum discouraged before, I'm sure she won't be complaining as long I'm helping out.. (of course, doing legal stuff..)

Lastly, the fact that people are able to bring you down like that means you're not trying hard enough to believe in yourself. I'm just saying..

As long as you stay firm being Optimistic person, no amount of pessimistic person surround you can pull you down. Personally for me, I just smile and move on.

Re: Pessimistic Parents

You must work to develop a relationship with your parents. Sometimes this means tuning them out but trying to listen to them at the same time. Respect them, for they are your parents. They may actually be right in many cases. Learn to develop patience with them.

Re: Pessimistic Parents

My parents are like that sometimes. But most importantly, you must believe in yourself (:
I proved them wrong eventually

JIAYOU!

Re: Pessimistic Parents

My father is the pessimistic one, so I and my brother avoid telling him about our plans or endeavors. We know for sure that he would just respond with non-inspiring words.

Re: Pessimistic Parents

Just ignore the things they say when they are being negative. Be positive and follow the path that you want to follow. Once they see how successful and happy you are they should be happy too.
