Is it wrong to have blind hope at times? Is it wrong to be absurdly optimistic? I was having a conversation with this friend of mine the other day and he was at times basically ridiculing me for carrying this blind hope when he thinks its a lost cause. The sad part is even his situation at times earlier this year seemed to be a lost cause, yet he was able to stage a recovery. By being optimistic are we not giving this other friend a hope and chance to stage a similar and if possible better recovery? Where is that thin red line that differentiates being optimistic and turning towards practicality? What do you chaps think?
