About the glass half full & the one half empty.

edeneve edeneve
food for thought: we've all said something about --- the glass half full & the one half empty. well, really, there are other options that have never really come to the light. for instance, how about my glass is filled to just below the rim. or how about this, my glass is full. now what do those 2 phrases tell us?

I think these sayings can have a positive and a negative view depending on how full/empty the glass is and ect.

Glass filled below the rim: My glass will never be full enough/I spilled some of it./My glass will be full soon
Just an estimation but I figure it'd be something said by someone who will never be satisfied, or someone who felt they had it all and lost something. Or in the more joyous, positive view "My life is almost complete, but I need a little more."


My glass is full: I am fully satisfied with my life/or if your glass is full of something nasty then you feel you have a long unpleasant way to go.
I'd figure that a full glass would indicate a fully fulfilled life. Though I also think that this half empty/full factor can also depend on what is in the glass. So if someone has a full glass but it's something they don't like, then it's something that's gonna take a long unpleasant time to drink. So someone who maybe expects they'll have a long tiresome life/ or maybe their full life has gone sour somehow.

I dunno. Like, someone could be all like "WTF this glass is half full! I wanted it all the way full!", y'know?

Me, I'll just chug whatever's left in that glass- a beverage is a beverage! But it could be half a glass of a drink I hate and I'll steer clear it... Unless I mistake it for something good and don't even realize it until after I've taken a gulp. Whatever drink it is, it could come in anything. A styrofoam cup, a tea cup, a big-ass mug... Hell, it can be a shot glass. And, every once it a while, I get half a glass of m&ms or ice cream or somethin'-- Unexpected, but positive in the end.

So, yeah. . Everything's relative!

If your glass is half full, you can ANTICIPATE the joy of getting it filled!

If your glass is half empty, you have EXPERIENCED the joy of a full glass!

Either way, you have an OPPORTUNITY to fill your glass to the brim!

So far, I like this answer the best.

This particular saying has never sat well with me -- it doesn't matter if it is half-full, half-empty or smashed on the floor -- there is not a person on the planet that does not crave something more in addition to what they already have.
