Always Hope but Never Expect

Being hopeful means you are looking forward to something despite the circumstances. In times of challenges and difficulties, hoping is what keeps us going. However, being hopeful must not be mistaken as expectation. Expecting something can be frustrating if it doesn’t come true. When you are hopeful, you believe that there is still a chance for something or someone even if it doesn’t seem that way. When you expect, you are 100 percent that it will come true. This will lead to hurt feelings and disappointment if it happens the other way. It’s good to hope without expectation. But hoping must be coupled with actions.
