Psychobabble cliché

Glass half full or glass half empty?

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.
