. . . finding hope in every difficult situation
From despair to hope….
Loss . . depression, confusion, hurt, anxiety, transition, divorce, anger, addiction . . .
The pain of suffering with these and other life issues, often brings a person to seek help. Our natural instinct, when hurt, angry or hopeless, is to build walls around our heart. Walls of self-protection that separate us from others. The loneliness of it all can feel overwhelming. and the anger or depression may seem relentless.
Hopelessness settles in.
As we become isolated, worry more, talk less, become despairing, angry, unforgiving, depressed and anxious, we often do more of the very things that are NOT working already. . . . what else could we do?
Hope starts when we begin to speak out loud about what we have experienced in order to find the truth in it.
And yet, those walls of protection now keep out the very desire and curiosity that are needed for healing. Instead of growing into a new way of life, understanding and action.. you find that only the painful circumstances grow.
