Why put up with value judgements based on meaningless comparisons? Why can’t we just recognise there’s something in the glass and stop quibbling about quantity.
Today I was told a viewpoint I’d expressed was “glass half-empty”. If so I think it was preferable to the spin being presented by my “accuser”.
I’d rather recognise reality, even viewed in a negative light, than to fall for a falsely rosy outlook. I’d rather know I have a half empty glass than to have an empty one deceptively covered with wet cling-film.
