Despair

Right now I am thinking...

Being desperate is not a "bad thing".  Despair doesn't help.  Being desperate alone doesn't get us what we want.  But seeing that we are desperate and admitting it to ourselves at least helps us understand ourselves.

This reminds me of these lines of Shakespeare:
This above all,--to thine own self be true;
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
