When someone sees the good in every situation and is all optimistic and thinks the world is great you say that person is viewing the world through “Rose tinted glasses.” There’s only one problem with that, what the hell is that supposed to mean? The color of the tint in your glasses has absolutely nothing to do with your outlook on life. Even IF it did, it still wouldn’t make sense. That would mean if you had brown tinted glasses you’d be a pessimist and see the worst in everything because you’d be wearing shit tinted glasses. Well shit tinted glasses are actually more common than rose tinted ones and that’s not a socially accepted saying. The only way this saying is somewhat applicable to real life is the fact that hardly anyone wears rose tinted glasses. When was the last time you saw someone actually wearing rose tinted glasses outside? Never, and that’s because people are more pessimistic these days what with us living in a post 9/11 world on the constant verge of economic collapse.
