Eeyore the donkey is one of the most lovable of the Winnie the Pooh characters. There isn’t anything he would not do for his friends. Unfortunately, Eeyore is extremely pessimistic. He is always expecting the worst to happen. In fact, he is surprised when the worst does not happen. Eeyore is so concerned about all the bad things that might happen that he misses out on all the good things that do happen. Unfortunately, I know a few people who remind me of Eeyore.
