Why ‘Hope’ is a Four-Letter Word EP#152

EEver find yourself hoping and praying that something will work out in your favor? Maybe you’re hoping a family function will go well, you get that job you’ve interviewed for, or perhaps you are hoping *that certain someone* you love will finally get clean and sober. And, although we’ve been taught that Hope is quite the virtue, I would argue that sometimes Hope destroys. (Yes, I actually just said that.)

I think it’s far less common to talk about the negative consequences of a life consumed in Hope. Now, don’t get me wrong, I totally think Hope has it’s place and can provide immense comfort, but I think it’s worth examining when we use Hope as a crutch. As an excuse. As denial. Hoping that things work out but NOT making any solid plans of action. Hoping that your spouse will magically be what you need after expressing your needs over and over again and continually being let down… but, of course, hanging on to hope that he’ll change.

And let’s not forget that when you place all your eggs in the Hope basket, you are likely giving all your power away to people and circumstances you can’t control and ultimately you post-pone your happiness… You know, until X,Y, or Z happens… Because surely then, THEN you can be happy. Have a listen and see if you’ve been attached to Hope as a breath of inspiration and comfort or if you’ve allowed it to become a crutch of stagnation and self-sacrifice. Or… somewhere in-between.

This pod explores:

  • Why Hope isn’t a strategy
  • Think you’re super hopeful? You may actually be in denial… find out how to tell the difference
  • How Hope may be putting your happiness on hold
  • How to know when it’s time to be hopeful and when you’re giving all your power away to shit you can’t control
