Losing hope: Common mistake people do that make them hopeless

Losing hope

Dr Judith Rich writes, ” Hope is a match in a dark tunnel, a moment of light, just enough to reveal the path ahead and ultimately the way out.

Hope is anticipation to live, think and act for the future. The world survives with the existence of hope. Hope varies with the person, situation and surroundings. Hope is our primary motto to live. One wakes up with the idea to start afresh. Every dark tunnel has a light that could be seen only when one trespass through the darkness. Those who got stuck in mid of nowhere fails to cherish light coming from the other side. Well, it’s a matter of concern for us, at some point, we all feel the same. Some feelings hit so hard that one could fall from the edge or think to do so.

The grass is not always greener on the other side. Keeping hope sometimes prove futile. If you are in a toxic relationship, expecting a favourable change in your spouse will throw your life in a hallowing spin.

Hope is underrated if we expect loads of positive changes around us. The pandemic has evacuated bruises on our soul, leaving us helpless. In this gloomy time, the foremost challenge is to not lose hope. Believe is our next motivation. The Law of belief states that any sort of chronic illness is cured by keeping faith in the healing process. But, there is an urgency to discover the cause that blocks positivity.

1. Stress-

In medicine, the body’s response to physical, mental, or emotional pressure. Stress can knock at your door at any time. The duration and causes vary from childhood to adulthood. Stress arises when emotions got stuck in the body. It could come in the form of anger, pain, grief, resentment, love and hate. A person living in stress dwells in a Dark world where everything seems futile. Living with stress is a threat to mental and physical health swamping hope from life.

2. Feeling worthless-

How many times you have called yourself,” I am a loser.”

I am good for nothing

I can’t do it

There is nothing to worry about. If we worry once, we suffer twice. Negative thoughts have the power to destroy or churn our mind. It creates a loop in our subconscious mind. Then these thoughts develop the feeling of worthlessness in the brain.

3. Finding why-

We are not special in this world but we yearn for special treatment. Life is brimmed with hardship, struggle and grief. Each path has tribulations and situation have their consequences. In every adverse situation, we often ask a question, ”Why every bad thing is happening to me.” To add insult to the injury we think it’s the result of our sins. There is no exact answer to our problems. Life is not a piece of cake. It’s easy to say when life gives you a lemon, make a lemonade out of it. In practical life, we don’t want to accept the harsh realities of life. Cursing only worsen the situation.

4. Low energy-

An old proverb says,’ A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body. But what one can do if fatigue knocks you down. Feeling low is natural after an intense workout or being in depression. If ailment takes a longer time, feeling hopeless becomes so common. Low energy radiates negativity sweeping the

the essence of gratitude.

The thing that hurt us most is living with assumption. The pandemic has taken a toll on our lives. Remember, it’s okay to sometimes feel hopeless, angry or in pain. Sometimes life is a bit harsh on us but everything happens for a purpose. The choice is always in our hands. Losing hope is quite easy rather than keeping faith in life. Lifeworks on the principle of belief. We fetch what we believe in our thoughts.

  2. Great post here Friend. Another thing in my opinion that makes people lose hope is when they try to do everything by their own power. Sometimes we need to give the situations we face to God. God is able to take care of some of our burdens and to take care of us.

    The Bible says in Philippians 4:6
    6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

    God says in Jeremiah 29:11
    11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Therefore, it is important to pray about everything and to give all that we do to God in prayer. God is able to assist us, and with God, nothing is impossible.

    If you are interested in building a relationship with God, I have a post on it here: https://christcenteredruminations.wordpress.com/2018/08/29/how-to-build-a-relationship-with-god/

    However, there is more to know about God, and I make posts on my blog to this effect. You are welcome to follow my blog to keep up with my posts.

    -Great message here and God bless you, amen.
