When you are in the depths of despair, remember this. Things WILL get better. What that will look like, I can’t tell you. And I am certainly not saying that hanging in there and waiting for it to get better is easy, because I know it’s not. But I also know that in the end, it will be worth it. It may take a few false starts to get there; you may think you are finally starting to dig out of your hole only to find yourself at the bottom again. But please hang in there. Call a friend, call a help line, talk to someone who can help you see that there just might be a glimmer of hope to hang onto. It may seem hopeless, but there is always hope.
