Is that being pessimistic or a realist?
I’ll lean more towards the realist category.
I’ve been having a pretty great time with life so far. I’ve made new friends and formed a little clique with them. I’ve started going to the gym class I signed up for! I’m pretty proud of myself for that one. I get a knot of anxiety in my stomach before class starts, but i stick with just showing up and everytime I finish the class I leave feeling physically weak but mentally strong.
