It involves a positive mindset and the expectation that things will turn out well, even in the face of challenges or difficulties. Optimism can motivate people to pursue their goals and dreams, but Lauren Berlant's concept of "cruel optimism" suggests that sometimes our optimistic attachments can actually impede our flourishing and well-being, especially when they involve unattainable fantasies or promises that cannot be fulfilled.[^1] [^2] [^3] [^4] [^5] ## πŸ“ Notes ## ⛏️Resources - [[Jared B.
