Hope, The Basic Ingredient to Survive
Life, at some point becomes so painful and afflicting, that it becomes difficult or may be nearly impossible to survive. You have to face many obstacles. Things become extremely dreadful and terrible. One gets tired of trying and struggling. And its even more painful and hurting when you know that no one believes in you, not even a single person.
And then you yourself begin to negate your abilities and strengths. Darkness seems to be spread all around you and everything seems to be worst.
But no matter how worst the circumstances are, how tough the times are, how tiring the struggle is, how painful the situations are and how hard the hardships are, there is always a thing that we call, HOPE.
Hope is a very deep, dense and broad term. But we normally define it as to believe, to desire and to trust. Life becomes easier and at least worth least worth living with the richness of Hope. The only thing that builds you up again is hope. Hoping that the best has yet to come, One must be optimistic and believe in himself even if nobody else does in order to fulfill his desires and to meet his goals. Having goals is not enough. One has to keep getting closer to those goals, amidst all the inevitable twists and turns of life. And it is only possible, if we hope and believe firm enough.
Another important aspect before hoping, is to try, and try hard enough that you’re sure that you’ve made an effort that is worth hoping the best outcome from it.
The next questions that might knock inside everyone’s mind would be, “Whom should we hope from?”
In my view, hope within yourself, and as it grows, we automatically start hoping from everyone around us, especially who are near and dear to us. But sadly, hoping from others always results in disappointments. And that results to even more problems and worst situations and hurts the most. But at the same time it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear the hardships today.
So, the basic and ultimate rule to Hope, is to never give up because the beginning is always the hardest. Believe in God, and then in yourself, even if the world says give up, Hope whispers, try one more time.
