Hope

When things look bad, hope is what keeps me going. Struggling with depression can leave one hopeless.  The thing to remember is what a difference a small amount of time can make. Looking hard sometimes to find what we are thankful for. Do we have a roof over our head? Do we have something to eat? Are there those that care for us? Many times life can look so bad and things seem to be at the bottom.  Hope keeps us going,  Hold on to that thread no matter how small it may seem.  I fight suicidal thoughts frequently.  I know the despair of thinking things can not be worst. Keep safe, what ever it takes because there is a tomorrow and that might be the day when things change. I write this for all that suffer from depression, because depression make things feel hopeless.  As we help one another the world is a better place. Hope keeps us alive!

Sometimes an ordinary day is what we can be thankful for. Stay strong and be at peace.
