Stories..............................


Optimists told themselves a story that may not have been true, but it kept them going, often allowing them to beat the odds.  Psychologist Shelly Taylor says that "a healthy mind tells itself flattering lies."  The pessimists were more accurate and realistic, and they ended up depressed.  The truth can hurt.
