“In my experience in the therapy room, when people have no hope, problems tend to control their destinies. When I can assist people in uncovering even a glimmer hope for something (anything!), the problem begins to lose power—and when the problem loses power, the person starts to determine his or her destiny on his/her terms. Often, hope serves as the catalyst to uncover forgotten strengths, to begin to see possibilities, and to create and sustain change. As a therapist, hope is often my “partner” in helping people overcome obstacles or loss and see their worlds through a different lens. I want hope floating around the therapy room as often as possible, just waiting to be discovered and embraced!
So, as we march into another year, embrace hope. Hope allows for possibilities. Hope motivates. Hope heals.”
I couldn’t agree more. Survivors should have hope simply because they are still here, and can heal. As long as you breath, there is hope for you.
