Hello there :),,

English is truly a magical and fascinating language.

It has countless words that have same meaning but different usages.

Here are three adjectives that I find confused with.

Despairing / Hopeless / desperate

Three of them identically convey something that we can't reverse or no hope.

I can't tell any differences among them. Do they have distinction in expressing degree?

Could anyone help me?

    Please give us a sentence in which you might use these words, and we can talk about their differences within that context.

    (It would be good to include some description of the situation you are referring to.)
