People that wake up everyday to sunshine regardless of the actual weather, whose lives look peachy perfect b/c of their demeanor, whose energies and smiles motivate you or make you want to strangle them... 

Or do you?

"so the discussion savcal has started is all hers to debate/defend. I'd add little." ------- IOW, you refuse to debate the issue. That is certainly your right, and it is totally fine but then I would suggest that you stop bringing it up and stop making comments about it.

{{Yawn}}.  Enough with the posturing and calling any one else here angry.  After so many of your posts here, we all understand your agenda by now.  Jamblessed is an optimist.  We all know who the angry person is here.  The Pink movement is for the well and for the unwell.  You've chosen not to find inspiration from others, including those who've had a much, much mightier struggle than yourself.  That's your choice.  Jamblessed has a different choice.  It's a shame you can't live and let live.

Oh my gosh, may I borrow your words and echo them back to you?  Again, your words: but then I would suggest that you stop bringing it up and stop making comments about it.

Surely, there's got to be something more going on in one's life.

I am not DEFENDING nonsense, I am on the offensive against it. Your statements about Rolls are unfair and mean-spirited, and yes non-sensical in the literal sense. And your admonition to me, to "debate the topic," is so hypocritical as to be risible.

Your comments are mere posturing.  Nice people don't attack Jamblessed nor do they talk like that in real life  There are years and years of posts here showing unequivocally who's a pessimist.   One or 2 posts within the last day shouting "I'm an optimist, darn it," don't change that.

A). No one is attacking Jamblessed, what you see as a personal attack is only a rebuttal of the non-sensical comments she posted. B) no one claimed to be an optimist except Jamblessed, and I'll certainly hand her that. C) people do indeed talk like that "in real life." I talk like that, and I'm just as real as anyone else.

Here's a healthy way yet another woman recently responded during the Pink campaign to an early diagnosis of breast cancer.  She's optimistic...well, she's normal...and loving life because of the early catching of a beginning case of breast cancer.   As is the norm, there's no mention whatsoever of an unhealthy clinging on to the subject, defining her entire life's accomplishments by breast cancer, nor mentioning the vulgar and wholly inapposite term of "amputation."  ~

The choice of inspiration is found elewhere,  Yes, that's clear and I think that door can be shut now.  But do you ever get the feeling that she is trying to make others change their ways? She's told me that twice now then the message gets mixed to mean it's about her, Eek.  TY, I do try to stick to the positive and that's probably b/c of the influences I am drawn to in my own life.  To each their own. 

Can we get back to attitude and the op, I wonder if optimistic or pesimistic characteristics are human nature or learned through situations and others.

All excellent points from an inspirational optimist.  It's her mission and it's so defining of one's life, limiting, another chink to confirm that pessimism is the only way to live.  Sooooo NOT my way of living.  Schools are closed so we're off to buy new ice skates and go to the ice skating rink with another gaggle of their friends!  I am a saint. Wink   I guess I should instead just stay at home and teach my brood and their friends to be angry.  Well, I choose not to do that. 

Have a great one!

I can take the attacks and rise above them bord, But when you get wrongly accused of something then you step in and defend the dishonesty, it certainly does deserve to be refuted. And that's what I've done, We can let that go now...

No one attacked you, Jamblessed. They refuted your position. Then you step in and make snotty comments about the person who thinks differently from you. That's just wrong. There is no possible defense there, so walking away is about all you can do. Bye.
