The verb deparar is used with reference to the action of granting, granting or offering. The concept can also refer to presenting or exhibiting.
For example: “I don’t know what this trip will bring us, but I really want to get on the plane and start the journey”, “The draw for the round of 16 of the tournament can bring up to three classics”, “Never forget to that a betrayal can only bring anger and pain”.
The idea of providing is often linked to what someone expects from something. Suppose the president of a country discusses a possible tax increase. The president begins to think about what he can bring such a measure: on the one hand, it is possible that the citizens do not agree and that they express their discontent; On the other hand, the increase in taxes could lead to greater tax collection and thus the State would have more resources that it could allocate to satisfy the needs of the people. Based on these forecasts, the president must make a decision.
The randomness that we usually associate with the future can be fascinating, and many times it motivates us to keep going in the most difficult moments simply to see what destiny has in store for us around the next corner, behind the next door. On the other hand, we must not forget that our actions always have consequences, so that if we pay more attention we can anticipate certain negative situations to live better.
In addition to the synonyms of the term provide exposed so far, we can also mention the following: “supply” and “provide”.
When a person asks himself “what will fate have in store for him”, he does not focus on the possibility that fate grants him to live a particular experience, but on the experience itself. This nuance makes it difficult to assign an antonym to this verb.
Both in this context and in the example of the president who analyzes the potential consequences of an increase in taxes, the verb stop makes us think of a door that opens to the unknown and that lets in an often unpredictable reality: it does not serve us to ask ourselves if “the company will give us a raise”; behind the same door, fate can bring us a raise, miss the train, meet the person of our dreams or even a terminal illness.
Although on some occasions it is possible to analyze with some clarity the things that a decision can bring us, this term is not used to look carefully at each one of them, but before, perhaps to make up this list in our mind and only then move on to verbs such as “conceding”, which do allow us to focus on more specific issues.
Having said all this, it is not an easy task to come up with a verb that serves to express the opposite idea of deparar; if we really want to be at the other extreme, perhaps we should simply avoid the question about the consequences of our actions or what the future holds for us. We are facing a special case in which it is preferable to deny the original verb to use another, if we wish to express the opposite: «I wonder what this trip will not bring me».
Deparar can also be related to the attention paid, or not, to the consequences of an action. A young man can organize a party at his house, inviting dozens of friends and listening to loud music throughout the night. The next day, the boy meets several neighbors who express their complaints to him since they could not rest. It can be said that the young man organized the celebration without considering the inconvenience that he was going to cause.
