Sometimes I struggle with reasons, and I often think way to much and stress myself out.
When I overthink I tend to get depressed like a lot. Living in the present and not stressing out much is the best course of action for people with sz.
My reason to have hope is my love for my husband. He is the reason I carry on.
Also to share my story with others with mental illness so they can have hope too. This keeps me wanting to stay around and not die yet.
For me @Joker my reason to have hope is the presence of love in my life - to give it and to receive it. That’s what keeps me going. Other than that life is a bit of a struggle some days but love always puts a smile on my face.
The family that loves me. I don’t want to hurt my mom by hurting myself. I’m her only child.
I suppose my reason is to avoid despair.
I’ve felt despair before, and I found it nearly terrifying.
I figure I might as well stick around and see how this cosmic lottery of life unfolds.
I don’t think you need a reason for hope. Maybe that’s what’s stressing you out. But here’s some reasons anyway:
You have a good support network
You’re a fighter (but try not to fight those trying to help you!)
The future’s bright.
I suppose the question I have is, do you feel hopeless? If so, what is making you feel that way?
My kids. Family. Pets.
I’m hoping that’s enough.
Because I feel I don’t deserve the people in my life and I don’t contribute to anything. Life around me would easily be able to do without me.
I’m still improving, even if it’s slow. I have a lot of reason to hope I can still make a go of it.
My reason is my family.
At times I can feel pretty hopeless.
My psychologist says the the human brain always looks at negatives to ensure survival and safety, and it’s only natural.
It gets me down a lot. I try not to load my family with these pressures, but it makes me feel so alone and hopeless.
From this thread I was hoping to see how the SZ.com community view something like hope, to see if we can relate.
Some of the stuff posted here helps
I have hope because I’ve seen again and again that no matter how shitty things are, they eventually get better.
I have hope because when I look back on how I was 1, 5, 10 years ago, I see a definite improvement.
My daughter feels that way sometimes because she has medical issues that have taken a lot of time and money. The thing is, the value of a life is not based on the material things one brings. It’s just valuable and love is really the thing that keeps others going in life. I’m sure you give love to others and are an important part of their lives being better.
Have hope that the voices aren’t real and I dont live in a false reality
My reason to have hope is to be a good wife, mother, and author. I want to be good at all of those things so that I’m remembered fondly for at least one.
I live the life i hoped for. I don’t work anymore, sleep in everyday and live in the day. My problems aren’t religious nature anymore. Lately I discover new natural skills in me. I got so much to look forward to. I am happy and love my life. I gave in. Sometimes it’s raining but most days are sunny.
I am living for my family, parents and brothers.
My hope is they develop a long-lasting vaccine for Covid19, and life goes back to the way it was.
