Personality, perspective

In general, being an optimist is considered a good thing to most people whereas the pessimistic viewpoint is mostly looked upon with disdain.

So what happens if a particular individual’s personality leans more towards being a pessimistic rather than optimistic view?

Does that necessarily mean they would need to work at completely altering their personality to be in tandem with the ideal characteristics that society upholds?

Or do they just comfort themselves in the thought that they are just being their natural selves, and that they need not feel obliged to conform to society’s demands?
