Are you feeling hopeless?
Most people have times in their lives when they have lost hope or thought that things would never change. You may even find yourself in one of those dark places when it’s hard to find hope or figure out what to do next. But many people who get better have one thing in common— they realized they were not alone, found ways to make changes and got the help they needed to feel better.
You may feel hopeless because of something that happened to you — you made a mistake, had a big disappointment, lost something or someone you care about, or have to deal with situations that are very stressful or overwhelming. Other times, you may feel hopeless and you don’t even know why. It could be depression, addiction, lack of sleep, physical illness or something else that is affecting how you feel.
The good news is that things are never hopeless, you just feel like they are right now. There are always things you can do to feel better. Sometimes these actions are little things you can do every day to improve how you feel, and sometimes the action that helps the most is reaching out for help to talk to about how you are feeling.
