Do you have hope? Hope that tomorrow holds something better? Writer Nikki Banas* writes:
“If you only carry one thing throughout your entire life, let it be hope. Let it be hope that better things are always ahead. Let it be hope that you can get through even the toughest of times.”
When someone is dealing with grief, anger, anxiety, and constant triggers tied to a previous abortion experience, hope can seem beyond reach. In fact, it can seem impossible. But, how does one go from hopeless to hopeful? Typically, the first step is to acknowledge the abortion happened and caused a loss in your life. Next, it can be helpful to find someone who will talk through your situation in a confidential, compassionate, and nonjudgmental setting. Someone who will really listen to you, validate your situation, and take the time to walk this healing journey with you. It may not be easy, but it will be worth it. Overcoming this challenge will make you stronger and emotionally healthy and may even give you future opportunities to help others going through the same thing.
