I'd suggest despair cuts off the correspondence between our being & the environment. Despair is s a constricting state where the self is narrowed down to a self-enclosed point, whereas something like love in its fullness is an expansion of self, expanding one's unity with the outer world. Despair muight be the necessary sickness that helps lead to that second state, but in itself it is a weakened state of being. Exalting it as the highest state is a mere wallowing in this weakness.
