Whatever happens in your life, no matter how troubling things might seem, do not enter the neighborhood of despair. Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you. Be thankful!
~Elif Shafak,The Forty Rules of Love
Despair is the condition of losing hope, feeling so crushed that you even question your very existence. Everyone has felt despair one way or the other. But those who hold on long enough soon see the light at the end of the dark tunnel.
One realization that continually actualizes is that life is full of so much pain and at the same time, so much hope and beauty. All these have their phases, nothing is permanent.
If you are feeling despair, think of others in worse circumstances than you are. Some are dying, so hopeless and without even a family to call their’s. The greatest stories heard are those of people like you and me that constantly battle their fears and despair.
Hold on….your time is near. Keep hoping, never give up on life. For there are some out there that wished they had what you take for granted.
Be thankful for even the little things and look forward to a brighter future.
