Hope and positiveness.
Both words almost mean the same. I guess, one tags the other. The question, being which tags what?
Hope is to look at things in a positive manner, trying to believe that our trust and belief in something hold good. Hence, does a positive outlook follow hope, in it's usage, it's literary sense?
Having a positive outlook towards things. Attempting to make us to believe that everything occurs in our favour. It neccesarily does not define so. A positive side also emphasises on the how we approach, accept, digest things.... whether they please us or not. Will the same pack enough courage in us, in order to face one disapointment after another. Or is it, in vain?
Hope and trust? Do they have something in common. Hope surfaces from trust, a strong feeling, that one may or may not realise. It is something which is soothing, when one is in despair, when one wishes otherwise. I also feel that hope requires some input. To make us worthy of it.
Which among them is apt, when one experiences setbacks, in continuous fashion. About the nature of setbacks, does it matter?
