Hope Faculty always tells its members that tough times is only a phase and to remember to have the strength to not let it control your mind and body. Below is a great quote Hope faculty found on the web and thought we would share it.
At Hope Faculty we laugh a lot, and I’m afraid it’s because otherwise we would be crying all the time.
A lot of hope Faculty members are so in tune with their feelings and what they are worth that their own natural voice of reason talks to them all day in their head about the wrong doings of mankind, and then this manifest into anger that continues throughout the day as you continue to spot small injustices that accumulate in screaming out loud “why isn’t the world Right”, “Why can’t things just be done correctly”.
You only must look at the international news to see how unfair and all the problems the world is facing politically and economically. You can see the pain and suffering humans can inflict on each other, how people become groups will try to divide by differentiating themselves, so they can find the evil and a cause to conquer some other human being who deep down is just the same as them. We are all just one human race and that’s why at the Hope Faculty we tell our members that the anger and sadness generated through the injustices you have encountered in today’s society, use that energy to counteract it in your daily lives , yes you cant change the world ,but you can change what your reality is , you can lead by example show that there is good in the world , be well behaved and good mannered , approach and say hello to everybody you encounter, smile and be vibrant all this has a knock on effect and can empower someone else who is watching you. Also, we tell our Members to help at home, talk to your family members that you have not talked for a while, engage with your kids, younger siblings or nephew and nieces or simply younger adults in the family, your advice can be powerful and just getting to understand them will benefit you and let you know what kind of route they might be on. Be good to your friends by being positive, taking an interest or reminding them what life looks like and what life is about by removing them from that box, that same mental state they find themselves in and give them a different perspective, help them think out of the box.
All these good vibes projected will in turn be projected in your own life, you soon will discover more positive people in your life, when you reflect positivity you will have this way of being able to find the positivity in people who could be considered to be negative. Projecting smiles will bring smiles into your day and you will start this wave of good feeling within yourself that cant be broken .A wave of good feeling that’s so strong that not even the bad world news the media portrays can knock you, because you have the positivity to not let the media get you down simply because you know the world is full of positive and good people which in turn brings us hope, and hope can change the world into a better place and that’s why we see no point in crying and just laugh at the battles ahead.
To the partner of someone with mental health problems:
We know it’s hard because sometimes the person you met, fell in love with and care about may have changed a little; they now have ups and downs. They are the person you love one day, then can turn into someone you may not understand, but one thing is for sure you know you still love.
Love is the key because you love, you care because you care you want to help, you step up to the plate , you learn and educate yourself in the condition, you empathise so much you share and know the worries . You do your best; always try making them feel comfortable, you are here for them.
You will find days you are consumed, a relapse, things don’t seem to be moving forward you still put on a brave face, you still comfort, you are still their rock. You can’t relax, you can’t show weakness, you can’t scream in frustration. You can’t air out your own concerns and worries about the future because they seem selfish.
But that’s just it, you don’t leave, because even if they don’t know! You have been ready for the battle, you’ve known this since the day you first met, because you still see the person you Love.
There’s not a lot of gratitude when your in these situations that’s why Hope Faculty salute you!
