Holding Hope, During Dark Times

There are times in our lives when we may feel overwhelmed with what we need to do, alone in our sadness and despair that our lives will ever change or get better. This blog will address, how do we hold hope during the dark times in our lives?

It is important to know that you are not alone, there are people out there who would listen and like to support you when you are struggling. There are people out there who have been in the pits of despair and have climbed their way out.

A basic loss is when someone we loved deeply dies, and we are alone to pick up the pieces. When we experience the pain of this loss, it is hard to imagine that we will ever feel better, and for awhile you won’t.

Life teaches us that time is what we need. After all there is a time to grieve, a time to be happy, a time to be joyous and a time to go inside and be quiet.

What will help you, might be different than what might help someone else. Talking to a counselor, a religious person of your faith, a dear friend or a trusted relative. Walking, reading, writing and being quiet for periods of time helps.

Time helps us to come to terms with our losses, we don’t get over the deaths of a loved one, or a terrible relationship that we have had to let go of, we learn how to be without that person and to live with ourselves. I think it is fear of being alone that is worse than being alone.

I hold hope for you that as you walk along the path of your life, you can learn the lessons you need to learn to be more effective in your own life.

At some point, you will learn how to hold hope for yourself, so that during the dark times, you will know that you shall overcome and come back to life.
