How To Find Hope In Desperate Times

Find Hope In Desperate Times

Life is hard. In vain we try to pretend that life is easy, the reality is that sometimes life is unfair and hard. For many situations there are not even half-effective solutions. Many times we simply do not know what to do to solve a situation. Who to call to help us? There is no one who can help us and we can’t help ourselves either. How to find hope in desperate times?

It is quite difficult to find hope in situations where nothing is going well. However without hope life is even harder. In desperate times, try at least to keep your hope up. But how can you keep your hope when life is so hard.

You need a deeper philosophy of life. That is, you need deeper thoughts to give you hope in these difficult times. Many times these deep thoughts were told to us by our parents or we read them in a book. Here are some small recommendations on how you can keep your hopes up in desperate times.

1. Beauty Is Found In Simplicity

The moment you notice beauty, your hope returns. Fortunately, there are many beautiful details around us, wherever we are. One of them is the sky. You can always look up and look at the sky to lift your spirits a little and feel confident again. Confidence in the beauty of life generates hope. Because ugliness generates a decrease in hope. Try to contemplate a beautiful little detail that you have at hand. It can even be a small object that is dear to you. The small details contain a lot of beauty, because beauty is found in simplicity.

2. Have Patience

The ability to be patient is directly correlated with the level of hope. The moment we lose patience, our hope diminishes dramatically. Think that all things and events are transient. Unfortunately or fortunately everything will pass. Yes, of course you want the bad things to happen faster and the good things want to last longer. We all want that. But life is composed of a mixture of pleasures and troubles. Sweet moments would not be so beautiful if we did not have some troubles in our life.

3. Slow Things Down

When you start to lose hope, it is an alarm signal that you feel overwhelmed. Give yourself permission to slow things down for a while. Just think about today. Leave the future. The future has an extraordinary ability to take care of itself. You don’t have to worry about the future. You need to only care about today. Survive today as best you can, until dusk, then go to bed a little earlier. You deserve it. Leave the whole world and your own life in someone else’s care for today.

4. Read a Wise Book

Wisdom generates hope. A deeper understanding of reality helps you a lot to have a high level of hope. Somehow, when you feel that you are losing hope, your level of wisdom temporarily diminishes. Go back to a wise book you read in the past or read a new book. Don’t read something dramatically with an ugly and hopeless ending. Read something that will give you strength and motivate you. Also, don’t read a book that is too hard, because you don’t want to add even more weight to yourself. It would be best to re-read a wise book you have read in the past. It will definitely help you.

5. Talk To A Friend

Talk to a friend, mother, father, brother or sister. In desperate times, communicating with a friend or a person who has known us for many years helps a lot. Don’t hesitate to say everything you think. Tell them all your thoughts from those moments. Wait to see their reaction and listen to what they tell you. If you are both in the same situation or you have been in the same situation in the past, talking about this common life experience will help you a lot, you will see. Don’t hide from people who have known you for many years. Nobody can compensate for the value they offer you, because no one can know you in a few days as they know you from so many years.

6. Write Your Thoughts

Write your thoughts on paper. Try to write freely. That is, to write down all the thoughts that go through your mind even if they are the worst possible thoughts. If you think that someone might read what you are writing, break and throw away the sheet after you have written your thoughts. As you write down your thoughts, do not try to lift your spirits and motivate yourself. Do not deny your negative thoughts. Don’t tell yourself it’s nonsense. Just write the thoughts on paper. Try to write a single page with the darkest thoughts you have from those moments. Don’t write more than one page and don’t hide some of your thoughts.

7. Do Something Small and Simple For Yourself

When we lose hope, we also lose the ability to do good things for ourselves, which leads to an even greater loss of hope. This vicious circle can be broken very easily when we do a small and simple thing for ourselves consciously. Doing something for yourself to feel better greatly increases the degree of hope. Extend the bath you take a little more. Sit on a bench in the park and contemplate the nature for some minutes. Read a good news of an event that is happening in the world or that has already happened. Take a nap. Make yourself a cup of tea by paying attention to all the details of making the tea by making them slower and more conscious than usual.

Conclusion

Hard times are difficult, but losing hope is even more difficult. Whatever happens to you, try to keep your hope up. Another way you can bring hope into your life is by giving hope to others. Be the one who inspires others even in the most desperate moments of life. Yes, it is difficult, but not impossible. Keep your hope up and also give it to others. Happiness can be found even in the darkest moments if we remember to turn on the light.

How to Get Back to Normal Life After Losing Someone Close?

How to Get Back to Normal Life

Dealing with the loss of a near and dear one can be one of the most challenging times in your life that you may face. The sorrow or losing a close friend or family member can be quite intense. We all know that death is a natural part of our lives, yet it can be overwhelming when we have to face it. The sadness usually becomes less over some time, and grieving is essential to overcome the sense of loss and comes to terms with the absence of that person.

Every person reacts in a different way to the loss of a loved one and uses a different coping mechanism. However, the time needed by each person to go back to their normal lives varies. Research has shown that people who seek help or assistance during this period recover faster than those who try to deal with it by themselves. Trying to stay strong by suppressing one’s emotions not only lengthen recovery time, but it can also have long term repercussions. Even though human beings are resilient, some people struggle more to cope up with sorrow than others. They are not able to partake in their regular routine and find it difficult to go back to normal life. That is why it is advisable to seek help from positive sources to overcome the sorrow of your loss.

Most people think of consulting a psychotherapist or psychiatrist when they need help to deal with emotional turmoils. But these days more and more individuals are turning to psychics to understand how it is possible to stop missing someone who was one of the closest people on earth to them. Psychics are gaining popularity as the new wellness coaches.

How Can a Psychic Help?

Psychics are gifted individuals who use their abilities to support other human beings. They are also natural empaths who make the other person comfortable enough to be able to share what they are going through. If you are struggling to cope up with your emotions, maybe you are not getting the right avenue to express your feelings and emotions. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a close friend of a family member. Reaching out to a psychic will allow you to express your grief and share your thoughts that are bothering you. If your relationship with the deceased was complicated or difficult, you might be feeling guilty. Or you may feel that you were not able to express your love to the person who passed. A psychic can help you to understand how you can heal yourself and come to terms with the absence of the person.

Many people think that psychics and mediums are the same. Although all mediums are psychics, not all psychics act as mediums to connect with the spirit of a person. Depending on your expectations, choose whether you want to see a psychic or a medium. Psychics who act as mediums can help you to ask a question or get a message from the deceased. If you are not able to move on because you have unresolved thoughts about the other person, or you are concerned about how they are in the afterlife, you can seek help from a medium to communicate with the soul of the deceased.

Moving on With Life

Coming to terms with the loss of someone dear to you can take a substantial amount of time. It helps to establish a renewed purpose or direction for your life. These are some of the ways that can assist you in coming to terms with your loss.

Talk About It

The first step to recovery is sharing your thoughts and emotions. Keeping them locked up inside can be detrimental to your emotional well-being.

Accept Your Emotions

Coming to terms with a range of emotions can be overwhelming. Feeling sad, angry, and exhausted at the same time might confuse you, and you can find it difficult to differentiate between one feeling from another. That is why it is essential to seek help if you are not able to understand what it is that you are feeling.

Help Others

Sometimes being a part of a support group is not just about being about to share what you are going through. You can also help someone who is going through the same situation. Helping someone gives you a renewed sense of purpose and might provide you with the closure you are seeking.

Staying healthy, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep can also prove helpful in coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. Remember that others are connected with your life too, and it is still worth living for them, but most importantly for yourself.

Good Friday To Hope For Easter Miracle

Good-Friday-To-Hope-For-Easter-Miracle

Today is a Good Friday to hope for Easter Miracle. Actually it is the perfect Good Friday to hope for an Easter blessing.

Over the time we have called Good Friday “good,” even if is such a dark event commemorating a day of suffering and death of Jesus Christ. We can do the same now. We can keep faith on a Good Friday that doesn’t feel so good.

One way to do this is for us all to include in our prayers that this Easter energy be directed to heal everything that the world needs right now.

Today is Good Friday. And we can navigate uncertainty with courage.

Courage is an interesting emotion. It does not denies fear. Actually courage invites fear in, in order to accepts it and to manage not to be afraid of fear itself.

It take courage to have faith in times when so many people have lost faith.

Many positive people has gone silent in the past week. It feels like they are shocked by what is going on. Where is the power of positive thinking? Where is the power of the law of attraction? How can be vibrate at the level of joy in these challenging times?

In life there will always be a choice to make. I remember reading in a book “you always have a choice over your thoughts and feelings”. The book was inviting me to use this choice. But in these times I wonder if this choice has value anymore. Do thoughts and emotions matter anymore in the current state of the world?

Where is the power of healers, of light workers? Why can’t they just heal the world and make things good again?

But have you wondered what is the deeper meaning of all this? Have you thought about your soul lately?

It seems to me like we are giving to much importance on the body these days. We forgot about the importance of the soul. But here it is, the Good Friday has come. A Good Friday to think about your spirit.

It seems to me that we are invited to think positive only if it solves the current situation. It feels like positive emotions are good only if they solve the humanity crisis in which we currently are. Beauty has lost its meaning and value. What is beautiful today? Almost nothing. Or day by day the beauty decreases… until all the beauty of the world will disappear.

I don’t like this way of negative thinking. And I think you don’t like it either. This is one strong reason to choose positive thinking. Someone said “Choose to be optimistic, it feels better”. That someone is Dalai Lama XIV.

Optimism lost so much power over the coronavirus, COVID-19 that has now spread to a number of countries. Why?

People expect that optimism, positive thinking, positive words, positive feelings and emotions solve problems and situations. This is the basis of their choice to choose optimism or not. But Dalai Lama kept it simple, he said choose optimism because it feels better.

And what a better good day for choosing optimism than the Good Friday. Like always, Today is a good day to start.

You might need to read an inspiring story to give you a reset. We are inspired by other people so many times. And this is good. I have found this amazing story on Forbes that will give you all the power you need to choose optimism Keeping Faith On A Good Friday That Doesn’t Feel So Good.

Also, you might need to paint some eggs for the Easter that is coming. And you might want to paint some good Easter words on those eggs. I actually advise you to paint kind and motivating words on the Easter eggs this year. Get inspired from two of our amazing vocabulary lists:

Etymology

“Good Friday” comes from the obsolete sense “pious, holy” of the word “good”. In Old English, the day was called “Long Friday”, and this term was adopted from Old English and is still used in Scandinavian languages and Finnish.

Significance

On Good Friday we remember that Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. It is followed by Easter, the glorious celebration of the day Jesus was raised from the dead, proving his victory over sin and death and pointing ahead to a future resurrection for all who are united to him by faith.

What is Faith?

The one responsible for giving an answer to this question is you.

It is the same responsibility as you needing to give yourself the answer to the question Who am I? Someone was saying that it’s strange to ask another person the question Who am I? Because the person you are asking might be a flight attendant that could yell in the entire aeroport: Does someone know who this person is, because he doesn’t know who he is.

But I can give you a little help in discovering what faith is.

According to the dictionary faith is a belief in God or in a set of religious doctrines. You might say that you do not believe in God. And this is ok, it’s your choice. Also according to the dictionary faith is the confidence or unquestioning belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea or thing.

Therefore the big question What is Faith gets split into questions like: What are your values? What is your deep truth? What are you confident about? What do you believe in?

Answering this questions will anchor you in a deeper meaning of life, a deeper truth where your soul resides.

Faith is Trust, Belief, Confidence, Assurance, Reliance and it’s opposite to Uncertainty, Doubt, Distrust.

Have faith. Stay optimistic. Think positive. Appreciate. Be grateful. Smile. These are not meaningful affirmations. These are powerful affirmation. Give them a deeper meaning. Connect them with your soul.

And remember to paint some eggs with good words!

Hope – The Ultimate Savior for Us in Tragic Conditions

hoping

There is a saying that “hope is when the whole world is shouting ‘no’ and all you hear is maybe”. When we face a very worst situation in our life, the only thing that gets us going is hope. We, humans, are very fragile when it comes to dealing with emotions. We tend to succumb to the circumstances rather than fighting back. But what we forget in our hard times is that there is always a door which is going to open when another door closes – a universal truth. Even though the journey seems tough, at the end there is always a silver lining to the sunsets. For the ones who are stubborn at heart, the universe falls for them and listen to their woes like no one else will. We should always keep hoping as we don’t know when a miracle might happen.

Hope never dies

There are so many incidents that we all experience in our complete lifetime when we least expect them. Like often we may not hope of passing a subject, but we pass on it. Sometimes we remain uncertain of a certain job but hopefully, we get it. Even sometimes miracles happen when we are more likely to lose our loved ones in accidents or some diseases but we get them back unexpectedly.

A totally unique case of hope can be the example of someone who gets bitten by a dog – what do we expect out of that situation? To be treated with the positive measure as we cannot really bite back the dog! But hope says you can still get justice for this incident in Georgia. There are umpteen numbers of Georgia Dog Bite Lawyers who deal with cases like these and helps the victims to take necessary steps. The justice may be of financial compensation or even lead to punishments of the owners too depending on the gravity of the situation.

Losing hope sometime means losing all you have

Well, it won’t be totally wrong if we say so! When we face a difficult situation we expect to come out of it as soon as possible and we do our best to survive. But if we tend to give up on these situations then chances might be that we fail to emerge a winner. So, all we understand by such situations is that when we do not lose hope, we can always expect a solution out of any difficult situation. Thus, it is necessary to keep trying and hoping until there is really no way out; the rest is destiny!

The final take

According to psychiatrists and other psychological experts, the ones who are hopeful of a certain crucial situation are more likely to get positive results than the ones who are always full of pessimistic thoughts. It’s very important to keep your hope alive in every situation, irrespective of how hard it is.
Alongside hoping, we should also learn to be patient; these two are the success mantras to achieve anything in our lives. When we hold on to a situation, we end up being more careful about the results and that in turn make us eligible for a better outcome. We should understand that we do not always get what we want and there is no harm in it as life must have better and bigger opportunities waiting for us.

Although it becomes very difficult to get through this journey of failure and heartbreaks at the end it really does make us the real survivors. And when you are happy at the end, all these hardships would finally make sense to you why it was all necessary at the beginning. Thus, we should never give up and keep trying hard to achieve the goals of our lives until it’s accomplished – the hope should not die.
