Hope -> Help -> Heal • r e p e a t •
1. Hope. My hope was the moment I remembered who I really am- a creation of the highest power, a loving God. It was a FIGHT for me to find it, but I did. Keep fighting to find yours. 2. Help. Let your hope help YOU. Be selfish. Do whatever you need to do to get back up. Once you're up, let your hope help you help others. Tell someone struggling you've been there, validate their feelings, remind them they are loved, be their safe place. 3. Heal. With hope in something greater we become strong enough to help others and that's when healing happens. It will never be easy for me to share my story. It's physically, emotionally and mentally exhausting. It scares me. BUT sometimes we need to leave our comfort zones to do hard things even if we're exhausted/scared to help others find hope to help them not give up. Last weekend I JUMPED out of my comfort zone as a shared my story in an Arena full of people my age on the same stage as many speakers I've looked up to for years. Clara was one of many fighters I met after sharing my story who made all my exhaustion and fear worth it. We reminded each other we're not alone and we're stronger together. Sharing my story was helpful for her and healing for me while her sharing her story was helpful for me and healing for her. aka WIN WIN!! Hope -> Help -> Heal it's a cycle that works, it's the #survivorscycle When we use it, we give each other more hope to help ourselves and others heal.
