It’s like restoring the trust in an abandoned dog who put the all the trust in the master.
The terrible thing about despair is the danger of getting used to it and how it will change the attitude towards life. The lower income class of Filipinos are a classic example. They never take promises seriously. If it comes it comes. Its all right if it doesn’t. Noticed it even in young children. They crave for something like a pair of shoes or a volleyball. But they live on with that longing happily even if they don’t get it. Kind of dream that did not come true.
