Hope



I have a question.

When does hope turn into foolishness?

You know what I mean, don't you? There's all this grey area between having hope for a better tomorrow & just letting things go on too long. Where does the distinction lie?

And if you see it, but there is no solution, then what? Where do you take it?

Mostly I just sit back like a fool, knowing I've been "hoping" too long, and wait for something to save me.

  1. That's such a difficult feeling. I like to think we know in our guts when we've hoped too long, but I'm not always so sure that's true. I hope whatever it is that is making you feel this way can resolve soon.

  2. Too busy today to answer this question. I have to work today and I'm on my way out the door now. You could come by here tomorrow to discuss it, or I will stop by your work on Monday to discuss it if you'd like.

  3. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
    Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen. --Reinhold Niebuhr

  4. For me hope is getting through this depression...waiting it out while fighting. Hope is so crucial to a lot of things, but you also have to make that hope happen ya know?

  5. No idea where the line is. :/ I'm sure I've held onto some things too long and let go of others too soon. Instincts are not to be trusted either, it seems. Thinking of you!

  6. I know and hate this feeling. Three years and 19 medications later my hope turned into reality. I know the waiting sucks and I wish there was an answer that was cut and dry. I'd like to tell you, no...it's not foolish to hold onto hope. Without hope, what have you got?
