LEARN: POLLYANA SYNDROME

Nowadays, it’s so easy to find something that will piss you off. Initially, you go out of the house, and boom! Traffic is everywhere. A mud in the street, the scorching heat of the sun, an annoying colleague, etc.

According to Paulo Coelho, Considering the way the world is, one happy day is almost a miracle.

But this: Pollyanna Principle.

It is the tendency for people to remember pleasant items more accurately than unpleasant ones.

It is also described as the unrealistic optimism and having an excessive (and even harmful) belief that all things will have positive outcomes, no matter what.
