You have lost all hope.
Some days you feel you have nothing left to live for and you can’t see beyond what has been ripped away from you.
I am so sorry. I am sorry that life can be so unfair and so unearthly. I am sorry that this is your life.
I want so badly to help you, to heal your broken heart, and I can’t. I just can’t. If I could I would wrap my loving arms around you and make it all right. Fix what is broken in this world and make it orderly. The way it should be.
You are in the darkest pits of despair and I want to pull you out. But I can’t. You feel stuck. It is so dark and lonely where you are and it’s so hard to find the light. Everything around you seems bleak and not worth living for. I was there once too. If I could change the world for you, I would. In a heartbeat, for you, I would.
I see you, drowning in grief. Floundering through life with very little hope that it will ever get better. You teeter on the edge of a cliff wondering if it’s worth jumping because you have nothing left. Because it’s all been ripped away.
But there is so much left. There is still hope. Please, please don’t give up.
The pain you feel is so very real and so very raw. Things will never go back to what they once were. As much as we want them to, they won’t. We can’t change the unchangeable, but that doesn’t mean we should give up. We have to keep going. We need to have hope. Hope is what ignites our souls and lets us find light in the darkest of places.
Find hope. Cling to it. Never let it go.
Things didn’t work out the way you wanted or planned, and you have a gaping hole in your chest that will never go away. You stand feeling alone and isolated in your pain.
But you are not alone.
Hope is all I have to offer you. Hope is the only lifeline I have that keeps me going. Please, I beg you, take my lifeline. You may not feel like it, but you will survive this. One heartbreaking moment at a time. And each moment that passes you are one step closer to finding what’s worth living for. You just have to have hope that you can get through this. That you can find the light in the darkest of places.
Hold fast to the lifeline of hope. There is still joy to be had and a life left to be lived. Do it for the one who was taken away from you far too early. Do it for the one who can’t live out their life here on this earth. Live life the way they would have lived theirs, with hope and so much love. They don’t have an opportunity to do that in this life, but they live on through you. Cling to the hope that they are with you, always.
Please, take this lifeline.
Please, don’t give up.
You will find your way… and hope will be your guide.
