too good to be true

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Seriously. Hasn’t life shat on you enough by now, for you to know how dangerous hope can be? Are you familiar with that line from Dante’s inferno “Abandon hope all ye who enter here”? Contextually, it’s not because hopelessness and despair contribute to the misery of being in hell. Rather, it’s a warning that holding on to hope is its own hell.
