    I'm always an optimist, so even when pessimists are more on the right track (with respect to reality) than I am, I find myself having issues with the pessimists.

    So when I think my optimism is actually in line with reality, I really disagree with the pessimists.

    Some might be trolls.

    But some are the kind of people who just worry a lot, about everything. But what if? But then what if? Disaster looming, 24/7.

    We all probably know some people like this. They might even be among our family and friends.

    I'd suggest that you just accept that there are worrywarts, for whom worrying represents their way of working through things. Mostly, the ones I know can't stop themselves from verbalizing their anxieties.

    It isn't necessary to try to convince them to see things differently, unless you feel like it.
