What happens on the journey from despair to hope?
Being stuck in a state of hopelessness usually pushes us in both directions at the same time. The first is feeling like shutting down, quitting, and moping. The second is a prompt to grow, meet and rise to the challenge, to learn the lesson sitting right in front of you. The second direction often hides, maybe provides an undertow, or operates in the background, but when it reveals itself, it’s the current that sweeps us back to hope.
How do you have the courage to face despair and see the undercurrent of hope?
