One of the easiest things to be in this world is a pessimist. It is much easier to be negative and discouraging than it is to be positive and enthusiastic. It is much easier to find fault than it is to find the good. Pessimists are the enemies of optimism. They think they are being realistic, but their negative view of the world is no more realistic than the optimist.
We must learn to say goodbye to the pessimists in our lives. Their negativity is harmful to our mental and emotional health. Their negativity is destructive to our creative impulse. No matter how painful it may be, we must let them go.
Many of us become trapped by the chains of our own fears because we don't want to make a mistake — we want what we create to be perfect. The truth is perfection does not exist. Even nature is not perfect. We can find plenty of mistakes in nature.
We must learn to accept and live with imperfection. We must not let the chains of our fears destroy us. Despite our fears, we must keep creating — we must keep growing and developing. We must believe in ourselves and our talents.
