Hope is something of a false reality really. Its this excuse we give for not knowing or wanting to accept the real thing. Hope can be a positive thing, just as faith. But its something we should not take for granted or become dependent  upon. The better half of my life has been filled with false hope. I can easily feel hope for someone more than I can for myself. One of the motto's I go by is 'Hope for the best, expect the worst' I am such a guarded person, with a more logical approach to life. I don't base things off of statistics, but it is what it is. Anyway people tend to take my view on hope as me being a pessimist which I don't think I am, I just look at things from a logical perspective and considering my one too many 'false hope moments' or failed expectations I think I at least have a little leeway to be a pessimist.

Why are there only 2 extremes Pessimistic and Optimistic? How about Realistic? That's much more accurate. Hope for the best, expect the worst is a good motto. I do that too.
