To trust or not to trust

Hope, being an emotional state, differs from optimism which is a result of a thought out conclusion. Often the by-product of faith, hope has been the driving force behind many things in this world. Interestingly, the Greeks considered hope as the greatest evil because, without hope, other evils will not be such a torment to mankind. It is because of hope that one believes that other torments will come to an end sometime.

But in reality, everyone hopes for something or the other to happen favorably for them. But as their hope jumps from one thing to another in quick succession, they get torn between the feeling of “I am almost saved” and “oh no! I am almost dead…” over and over again.

In essence, it is alright to trust to hope in life. But life itself shouldn’t be based on hope.

    but sometimes hope leads you to circumstances where all you end up is losing trust…

    Then we hope to regain it again somehow, do we not?
