What is hope?? The definition is: desire accompanied by expectation of or belief in fulfillment; also : expectation of fulfillment or success
Hope is the very thing that is lost while in the throes of depression. You can lose many parts of yourself, but when hope has been lost… it can be a very dangerous place to be.
I know the feeling all too well, as I have lost hope many times. I have had moments when I felt life would not get better, I had lost hope in it. I lost hope in being happy. I lost the hope of thriving. Lost the hope of living tear free, fear free. Lost hope in myself. When I got to that point, it was a matter of life and death and to choose life… I had to fight. Fortunately, my children have been my beacon of hope during my darkest moment.
Why did I want to write about this? Because I want people to know that when hope is lost, you can fight for it. As I did.
Don’t lose hope, I have hope in you. ♥
