Despair and acedia

“‘In both good and bad, one proceeds, as a rule, from what is imperfect to what is perfect’. A sin as “perfect” as despair is normally not the first sin to be committed, nor does it “just happen”. Rather, the beginning and root of despair is acedia, sloth” (Faith, Hope, Love, p. 117).
