Hope can be tricky.
On the one hand, it can be your only saving grace. Holding on to hope can sometimes be the only thing that’s keeping you going.
On the other hand, it can end up being an unhealthy addiction. You might not choose to move on if you stay stuck holding on to a hope for something that might never appear.
The key might be in getting honest with why you’re holding on to hope.
If you realize that you’re using hope as a way to distract yourself from moving on from a fantasy and getting down to really living, then you need to be honest about it being more of a crutch than a beacon of light.
But if your heart truly believes in what you’re hoping for, then you need to honor it.
When it’s true, hope can be your saving grace.
