"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." - Desmond Tutu
Hope can be hard to maintain at times. However, being able to have hope in uncertain circumstances gives you the ability to believe that an expectation or desire is attainable.
Repeating a mantra can support you on a journey to finding hope in challenging situations:
I am loved. My future is bright. I have worth. These statements can help you focus on what empowers you and develop coping skills.
You can also list your strengths, surround yourself with positive people, or set a new goal to begin working toward. Taking steps to choosing hope can show you that there are no limits to what you can achieve.
