    Really, I am.  In the past month though, so many things have happened that I bounce back & forth from being hopeful to losing hope (not to the point of thinking suicide).  I am very hopeful more than I'm losing hope, though.  So, that's good!

    I'm in my mid-20s. I grew up in a cult with a crazy mother who was abusive in a variety of ways and had an emotionally abusive father. After several years of hard work and therapy, I've untangled my mind and heart from feeling the need to love and protect my mother despite her...

    hopeful ... yes.  VERY hopeful ... not so much.  life's experiences have taught me to have hope but not to get my heart set on anything.  high expectations are a great way of setting yourself up for failure. despite 'life' and all it has to 'offer' ... hehe...

    Hopeful

    i always think that there's always a sunshine after a dreadful dawn. if something bad has happened then it's time for something good for you. this makes me an optimistic person. that's why i always hope for something good to happen.
