George Bernard Shaw Quotes
The Perfectionist believes that a happy life comprises an uninterrupted
stream of positive emotions. And because he, of course,
aspires to be happy, he rejects painful emotions. He denies himself
the permission to feel sad when a work opportunity
is lost or to experience the deep pain that follows the dissolution
of a meaningful relationship. The Optimalist, on the other hand,
accepts that painful emotions are an inevitable part of being alive.
He gives room for sadness and pain, allowing such feelings to
deepen his overall experience of life - the unpleasant as well as the pleasant.
