This sums me up so well

Apologies go to MB from London who wrote the following on clive james article on the bbc website, for taking this, but I feel it really does sum up so well what a wonderful way to live life. I think it deserves to be shown more, and you can only wish people had a more visionary view like this!

I read an article recently that stated those people who are happy and joyful all the time are self-deluded - they see themselves as more attractive and powerful then they really are, see themselves having mroe effect on the world then they really do. Those of us who are cynical, miserable and depressed are that way because we see the world as it really is - we don't belive the happy politicians lies, we don't trust anything or anyone until they've actually done what they said they were going to do, we see exactly how little influence we have the world around us, and no matter how clever the advert is, it's not going to persuade to upgrade our phone/car/internet connection until we've read that indepth consumer report. We're not cynical, depressed misery-guts, we're clear-sighted, perceptive visionarys. So there.

I am a visionary, lovely tag, maybe psychologists will use that instead of you are depressed, you are a visionary.
