The power of negative thinking

This essay will be written in the style of a position paper. A position paper takes an arguable point, weighs the pros and cons, and then makes the case for the more convincing side of the argument. Let’s begin with a question: Do you agree with Burkeman that it is better to approach life with pessimism? What are the benefits of a pessimistic approach, and what are the drawbacks? On the other hand, what are the benefits of optimism, and what are the drawbacks of that philosophy? Overall, which approach is better and why? In your essay, be sure to quote from the article at least 3 times, and provide a correct APA reference at the end of your essay. Do not refer to or quote from any other sources except the attached article.
