Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Several days ago I wrote What Helped me to Form a Healthy Relationship with Hope. In this article I shared what I discovered; that I had a dysfunctional relationship hope for many years. I went on the share what I discovered about hope that helped me to form a healthy relationship with hope. This too has been a process for me, but I have discovered when I use what I share in this articles, I am empowered by hope.
I would invite you discover what I learned through this presentation.
Below is an excerpt from the written article:
“What I discovered through my process and share in this article, What Helped me to Form a Healthy Relationship with Hope; forever changed my relationship with hope. What changed, helped me to form a healthy relationship with hope.
For many years I had a dysfunctional relationship with hope. I expected hope to do for me what I needed to do for myself.
For many years I found myself buying into the notion that if I just hoped enough, what I hoped for would manifest itself. Sort of like that magical thinking manifested in fairy tales. Consequently, when hope did not manifest itself, I became discouraged and despondent. You see I had bought into the notion that hope had let me down, because hope did not play by the rules that I had made for hope. Consequently, I found myself scoffing at the idea of hope. My cynicism surrounding the idea of hope continued until I reached an emotional bottom and experienced a spiritual awakening. My spiritual awakening revealed to me that hope is neither passive nor ambiguous, but active and engaging.
With my spiritual awakening, hope helped me to realize that I could no longer sit on the “side lines”. With my spiritual awakening, I began to see hope as a coach, who encouraged me to get and stay in the “game”. With my spiritual awakening, hope helped me to realize that I needed to learn.”
