When we apply the Buddhist concept of impermanence to life are we not overly pessimistic?

First of all, we must realize that impermanence and pessimism are two different subjects, just like permanence does not mean optimism.  By understanding impermanence, we will not insist on life’s events happening exactly our way.  We are able to appreciate our lives and will try to build good affinity with others.
