When fear and despair gripped me, not losing hope was the thing that helped me best at fighting it and seeing beyond. Good memories, talking with nice people, praying or recognizing my strengths were good ways for me to nourish hope. I have learnt to consider discouraging times as a passing moment. When I now think about these bad times, I see them differently. In fact, I made it!


Do not lose hope even in the most difficult and discouraging moments and think that they are temporary so they don’t last forever.
