If you have given up on everything including yourself, I’d like to remind you that you cannot stop living while you’re still alive! For quite a while now, I have struggled to write anything at all. This is because my life has been a roller coaster of emotions recently. For some of us, life is an endless test, and I honestly feel like I have already died many times before my time. Have you ever believed in something so much that you wake up every night praying for it to work and you do everything right to get it but end up being utterly disappointed before? Well, most of us have experienced this multiple times and that feeling breaks something in us and it robs us of our ability to hope again.
I live in numb days, days where I don’t want to feel anything or expect anything. I have adopted a new mindset, to live in the present expecting nothing and hoping for nothing. After all, what is the point of investing so much faith into something that is most likely to fail? The heartbreak is not worth my endurance.
While hope is a beautiful thing, many of us today have given up on it because we are literally bleeding from disappointment and failure. We do not wish to believe in anything again because we are afraid to be disappointed. I’m certain that 6 out of 10 readers of this blog can relate, however, can we all try one last time to hope again?
I have had limited experience with feelings of pleasure but what I know is that the sensation of hope offers unimaginable pleasure. The fact that you believe so much in that job, that relationship, that person or circumstance and you see it all working before it actually even happens can be thrilling. But some people have felt the pain of being disappointed so many times that they can literally feel it physically which makes them unable to hope again. One thing we must know is that hope keeps us alive and losing it is the beginning of our death.
Finding your way back to new hope is the most difficult thing to do. People have worked so hard on relationships that have failed, people have applied for a job so many times and they are still unemployed, some people battle with chronic illnesses that are eating them alive, and many of these people live in despair because they have lost their hope and cannot find their way back to it.
My business with you that day is to encourage you to hope one last time. Try a new relationship, apply for a new job, start a new business, run some new tests on your health situation, and believe that something will work for you this time and it will. If you have trouble coming out of your pain to hope again, just be reminded, that diamonds don’t shine until they’re buried alive. Don’t die while you’re still alive by losing your hope!
While you keep your hope alive and live your life as happy as you should, be reminded that depression and suicidal thoughts have no power over you. Allow your new hope to guide your new visions. Let your dreams live on through you and fix yourself by fixing your attitude towards the new beginning in your life. Cheers to new hope and a fresh start because it is always okay to start all over again regardless of how far you had gotten to.
