To lose all hope: despaired of reaching shore safely.
To be overcome by a sense of futility or defeat.
Complete loss of hope.
One despaired of or causing despair: unmotivated students that are the despair of their teachers.
n 1: a state in which everything seems wrong and will turn out badly; "they were rescued from despair at the last minute" [syn: desperation] 2: the feeling that everything is wrong and nothing will turn out well [ant: hope] v : abandon hope; give up hope; lose heart; "Don't despair--help is on the way!" [ant: hope]
Well the context is the next, the phrase was said by a friend of mine when I asked her how her "sentimental" life was going on... I could have imagine that but the thing is that we had connection problems and the conversation just ended there, so I just wanted to be sure..
