Hope Is The Demon That Ties Us To Our Past

Hope Is The Demon That Ties Us To Our Past

“Hope is the demon that ties us to our past. The longer hope stays, The longer we dwell. To kill all lingering memories an thoughts, kill hope. If hope is dead, an attachment is dead, and only then can we move on.”

  1. This saying reminds me of a scripture which essentially says, "hope deferred can make a heart grow (weak) sick." How I think about HOPE and having hope and of the saying is…too often we live out our lives hoping and praying without active intention. We rely on hope to bring us that chance, that change, that opportunity for our dreams to be realized. Sometimes this is through what we "hope" others can bring or give to us. And at others, it's hoping situations shift around so we have to be less flexible with our own thinking. On the other hand, having hope ~ can bring more optimism and in many cases actualize what couldn't be – had we not stayed on the positive and more affirming side of things. So with HOPE and of having it …there are two sides of the coin. Two faces of it…one can be limiting and the other, life sustaining.

  2. Word hope is used here diffrntly.u hoping for someone to come back to u then it means u havnot let them go in the first place.listen just ask urself and find an honest anwsr the reason someone is not in ur life might have been bigger that's y it ended so can u imagine to get that one back even with that reason?still acceptable for u?I don't think answer is yes.

  4. Classic Sam darkness ? really Sam ? how ?
    Hope is something I really have suffered because but that is true for a particular aspect, – if I keep that aside, hope is something so empowering, how can that be dark ?

  5. The Tenth Personality Yes in general hope is a good thing to have… Totally agree.
    But when we stick to hope in regards to have things back, they were like before, or hoping a person comes back in our life, or anything similar – it is then , when hope is doing the wrong act.
    It in a way delays the recovery

  6. If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don't abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.

    Certanity = Hope ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I think we have to give hope an expiring date. We have to recognize when having hope in situations or people is nonsense anymore. May hurts But waiting for something we know deep inside is hardly possible not only hurts but also stresses us…

  8. When disappointment comes hope helps people stay strong, don't give up hold on to your life things will improve. Hope is part of believing there is something better in the future. Hope is when you want the best for others. Hope is believing God is in control. Hope is a prayer, Hope is like a wish. Sometime like wishes hopes manifest. Hope has to do with the future and less to do with the past.
