Our expert says:
Some people do indeed seem to be habitually negative. Typical examples of the CBT model of Depression, except that they seem to almost enjoy not enjoying life. Nothing makes them happy --- except being unhappy, and bad things happening confirm their suspicions, while good things happening are explained away. People who notice the good things in life used to be called "looking at the worlf through rose-coloured glasses" --- these guys seem to have deep grey glasses. <br>This is a lifelong habit, and NOT a natural consequence of aging. You are wise to notice this sad mindset, and to avoid following their examples. They probably see themselves as having protected you by pointing out the negative consequences that are always POSSIBLE, without recognizing that by ignoring the good probabilities, they could have stunted your development, instead.
