2. Set aside some time to really feel everything you are going through. Stuffing emotions only delays the inevitable. By giving them a time (not too long) you can honor them, understand them and then set them aside because emotions are just emotions and they don't have to run our lives.
3. Spend much more time focusing on all the positive things in life. I like to focus on the things I can still do, the blessings I have, the people I love - that kind of thing. This always helps me to keep things in perspective and remember that there is actually hope.
4. Do things that are fun and relaxing, no matter how big or small. Doing these things help me to feel more like a regular person and sometimes I even catch a glimpse of the old me. Honestly, this probably does the most to help me feel hopeful. I know I'm still in there and someday I hope to see more of that me.
