I got the push to write about it because of a post of Anamika. I was really moved by this post of her – hope. I always wanted to write on this particular topic but your post opened up my clogged mind. Her post has only four lines but even then, the meaning is clear. I have tried to explain it a bit in my own words. 

One of the most said sentences in the world “Don’t lose hope.” 

I am sure everyone of you would have heard this atleast once in your life. 

Well, it does feel great to listen this line from someone but there’s another face to this particular line.

Sometimes, this so called hope binds us to the past. It stops us from moving on. It isn’t weakness to give up hope when you know that holding hope is doing much bad to you rather than doing anything good to you. 

Sometimes, the hope has to die to pave way for a new beginning. You have to shed everything from the past to move on and hope is the one thing other than memories that binds us to past. We can make peace with memories but we have to leave this hope. We have to make ourselves understand that clinging on to hope when everything’s crystal clear to us is not at all good.

From my recent personal experience, I know what stopped me moving on. This hope or better called “pseudo-hope” stopped me from looking to the future and moving on in my life. I had to make myself understand that holding on to this hope is pulling me back every time I want to move on. 

Believe me, giving up hope sometimes does wonders to you.

      1. I get your point. But I do have a different perspective!! For me, hope is something that gives you a reason to live, a purpose to your life even if it won’t do any good to you but you’ll live with a reason!

        1. Great that you have a different prespective. I understand your perspective too. Till sometime ago, I had only had this one prespective that you have. Now I have this other prespective too.
          Dual prespective you know.. 😁😁


                    1. When do we ask a question. When we don’t have an answer to it.
                      That’s why I asked a question but cause I don’t have answer to it. 😜

                    1. Quitting anger isn’t the right thing to do. Maybe channeling this into something useful would be better.
                      And moreover is age me irritate hoke gussa ho jana is normal. 😊

  1. well..God works in mysterious ways. I did hold on to pseudo-hope for a very long time. And then I gave up..just to find what I was looking for.
