I am neither optimistic or pessimistic. I refuse to accept there is a glass.

It is not a matter of accepting myself. I am. It is a fact of nature, whether or not it is accepted. Therefore, the whole discussion of a "glass" is mute as it does nothing to help define or delineate my existance.

Its not about defining your existance...its about labeling your philosophical take on things.

I also will not be labeled. You cannot simply put a tag on me and determine which box I am to be filed away in. I am, have been, and shall remain an enigma. Not that, in so stating, I place myself above or beyond anyone else - just that I flatly refuse to have anyone tell me where I "belong".

The perps tried that. Most of my family did as well.

There is no glass simply because I refuse to recognize one.

The question of "Is the glass half full or half empty" is a way a person asks if you are optimistic or pesimistic. I was not attempting to label you...the person who was asking was attempting to categorize you.

I am just talking this out...LOL

As I cannot read your mind - I cannot assess what your intentions were when you told me I was either pessimistic or optimistic.

In my opinion, you might be better served by realizing you can no more get me to accept the existance of the glass than you can get me to acknowledge any other creation of man's delusions.
