Emotional Hope

Second is the emotional aspect. Hopeful individuals evaluate their feelings in light of their anticipated outcome. They have assurance regarding the ability, strength, or genuineness of someone or something. This is not a state of denial, but rather the process of refocusing emotions so they don’t get too far off track. It is common knowledge that when optimism and hopefulness are conveyed people feel better sooner. When they believe in another person’s hope and optimism they become more confident that things will work out for the best. This feeling of positive anticipation is a key ingredient of hope.
