The Geneology of Hopelessness

  1. Expectations!
  2. Dashed expectations.
  3. Disillusionment and pain.
  4. No new options in sight.
  5. Deciding recovery (of whatever it was that was lost) is impossible.
  6. Resignation to despair.

There is nothing I can do about steps 1-4. But Step 5 holds transformational power. If I alter Step 5 to: Decide to accept the world as it is and passionately work to find an alternative path, Step 6 is eliminated from the DNA.


“Life isn’t about finding pieces of a puzzle, it’s about creating…and putting those exceptional pieces together.” -Glenn van Dekken
