Half-empty?

How do you see this glass, half filled or half empty?

Conventional wisdom say that we should look at it as half full to  manifest a positive view of life and what it offers. I won’t disagree. Such mindset helps us appreciate the things that are available to us, to be thankful for what life gave. I won’t disagree.

But to ignore the fact that there is an empty space in the glass, is to ignore the fact that things can be better. That with some effort, the glass can be more than just half-full.

We often demonize people who see what’s lacking, we are not comfortable with people who point out the other truth. Think about it though, life cannot be better, if everyone is too satisfied.
