5 Contrasting Attitudes

Updated on July 9, 2017

1-Optimistic and Pessimistic

Optimistic and Pessimistic

Optimistic people are the most sensible and practical people who know how to view the positive side of life. They strongly believe that happiness follows sorrow. With enlightening hope they successfully rejuvenate themselves and restore vitality. They are blessed with the skill to reinforce and strengthen their souls with new hopes. They put themselves in revelry no matter what happens and this leads them to gloriously thrive in life.

On the other hand, pessimistic people have a negative outlook towards life. They sadly say, ‘Nothing can work in the right way.’ And then they redouble their sorrow by accepting that grief is the only entity in life. They are narrow-minded and bigoted. Hence, intensify their own problems by demoralizing themselves. Ultimately, their negative attitude deprives them of their impending joy.

2- Friendly and Hostile

Friendly and Hostile

Friendship is the most acceptable and harmless weapon on earth. Friendly people have a magical conviviality. They bring in a merry ambience wherever they go. They are jovial, jolly, encouraging and cheerful. Others relish their presence and they ultimately emerge as the predominating figure in the crowd.

Hostile, unfriendly people on the other hand, are always undesirable. Their aggressive, provoking attitude aggravate situation. They are hence never embraced in society.

Decency adds a sweet flavor to virtue. Decent people are respectful and down to earth. They conform to conventions and do not unnecessarily flaunt or disobey. Their intuitive judgement, calmness and politeness is highly perceptible. Hence, their morally justifying ,refined ,courteous, soothing behavior creates a deep impression on every one’s heart.

Vulgar people on the other hand, are moody, querulous and complaining. These haughty , proud people by virtue of their arrogance act rudely and recklessly. Ultimately, their mischievous, errant manner cause diminution of their reputation.

4- Invincible and Gullible

Invincible and Gullible

Invincibility is derived from self-confidence and self-will. It has nothing to do with muscular power. A person can be invincible by the virtue of his rightful judgement, appropriately useful decisions, punctual and prompt actions , articulate speech, logic and merit. Their genuine cleverness and intense foresight assists them further. Altogether, their boldness and fearlessness makes them undefeatable.

Gullible people on the other hand, are the ones who can easily be tricked upon. They are diffident, weak and timid. They feel incompetent and hence become demoralized. Lack of self-confidence becomes their biggest weakness and are easily deceive.

5-Patient and Restless

Patient and Reatless

Patience brings in the most fruitful outcome. Patient people never leave hope and silently endure hardships awaiting for the right time to act. They possess a stable mind with firmly fixed aims and a strong soul. Initially, hurdles do bring them down but in their long journey of patience, they emerge victoriously with productive and splendid results.

Restless people on the other hand gain nothing due to their rash, haphazard behavior. They strongly believe in instant actions and never rethink before taking decisions. They think like a storm and work in a confused manner. Their fragile soul does not know where to stop and they have no pause, no respite and no restraint.

      Every judgment is contrasting and puts an attitude in the person making the judgment. As admonished by many a sage, including the buddha's "middle path" and the christ's "narrow way with the straight gate", we should seek the joining point of the judgments where, as the situation demands, you are able to present either with enough to prevent either reaction as you presented.

      In studying what the christ was required to do - and anyone else expecting to survive the end of the world - I have come to the conclusion both the buddha and christ were atheist as " shows.

      I appreciate your presentation, very real from the respective of judging although it missed the purpose - to bring understanding - for the opposites.

      No one is perfect. At least if one has one of these traits he or she is best served by becoming aware of it.
