Cautiomisim

I am cautiously optimistic. It's halloween, and for the first time in years, my apartment seems to be a community. Parents have been pre-asking whether kids can stop by. We've been socially distance showing our pumpkins via the balconies. Every thing is cautious full of apprehension, but almost more social than it has been in years. Without the pandemic everyone was anti-social and snobbish, but now in order to avoid people being social, people have to communicate that, which is respected. I have had more small conversations with more people recently than in the past few years. I get the feeling Christmas will be the same. half angry people doing angry things, and half cautiomisitic people being festive and social on a small scale.

Very well put. I totally agree with you, especially about the many small conversations. Makes you realize other people aren’t that scary, they are just people too. (From a person who really hates to talk to strangers)

What is this word? I see it twice so is it a double typo?
I think we all get it, but doesn't cautionistic work? -
1. a person whom is "cautiously unoptimistic" or both mildly optimistic and greatly pessimistic.

Yeah, why are there so many angry people in Vancouver? Is it because they don't have a place to live, or are surviving in substandard housing? Because they can't get any help for their mental health problems or other social issues? They still can't find a new job and their EI is about expire? They don't have families or SOs or even friends? Why can't these grinches just adopt a positive attitude ffs?! Quit harshing my vibe losers!!
