AT DESPAIR, WE OFFER THE CURE
FOR HOPE. AND FOR SURPRISINGLY
An ironic look at life and poking fun at everything this site and everything I share with you is trying to accomplish, Despair.com is an “anti motivational” site that doesn’t build up your hopes or aspirations- it reminds you life can be hard and it’s probably not even worth trying.
In fact, the best way to describe the site is to use the text from their own homepage –
No industry has inflicted more suffering than the Motivational Industry. Motivational books, speakers and posters have made billions of dollars selling shortcuts to success and tools for unleashing our unlimited potential. At Despair, we know such products only raise hopes to dash them. That’s why our products go straight to the dashing! Enjoy!
Reading that you are insignificant, are destined to fail or that multitasking is futile actually puts a smile on your face and in a strange way does inspire you- through the sheer honesty of the content.
Life is tough, following dreams is tougher- but making fun of that difficulty is a worthwhile pursuit and totally refreshing.
It’s the tongue in cheek nature of the site, and it’s multitude of funny merchandise that made it worth a share.
