Where to Find Hope in a Hopeless Place

“We Found Love in a Hopeless Place”– Rihanna

Well, it seems like love isn’t the only thing we can find in a “hopeless” place.

In the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, he had reiterated that we only live in a dream and we are currently living in hell because of anger, fear and other negative things that surrounds our lives.

Though silly as it seem, somehow, I believe him. Because of the misery everyone felt, this world had turned into “hell”.

A hopeless place.

People will destroy each other, values and morals are thrown out and disregarded, bonds break, betrayal, misunderstandings and of course, the seven deadly sins.

Its everywhere.

If we try to reflect, we can say that life is a one big mess.

But, where can we find hope in this hopeless place?

Try to examine yourself.

Are you contended for who you are and what you have achieved?

Do you see yourself doing what you should be doing in this world?

Do you think you are living with a purpose?

Are you happy yourself?

Are you one of those people who give “good” vibes to others? or one of those people who continually make fun of others and make them feel bad?

Do you make others happy? Or you make them feel miserable?

If you are one of those black sheep, come to think of it. Without knowing yourself, you unconsciously make this world miserable as well.

Remember, We are our own hope.

What can make the world beautiful? or a better place?

PEACE : Make peace with yourself. Forgive yourself and your mistakes. Start all over again.

LOVE: Love yourself. Embrace your imperfections.

HAPPINESS: Make yourself happy to give happiness to other people as well.

MONEY: Gain money by using your unique traits and abilities.

Everything that we need is in ourselves. We only need to discover it and use it for good.

However, remember that discovering yourself is the only start.

“No man is an island.” For we need to share these gifts to others. Nothing seem to be so important if we have no one to share it with.

If each of us discovered our purpose in this world, then maybe, this hopeless place can turn into a lovely and beautiful place to live in. A place where we can get love, hope and happiness.

Where to find hope in this Hopeless Place?
