Warning: this post mentions suicide. Hopefully, it will encourage you. However, you may want to give it a miss if the subject may trigger you. Despair is a horrible emotion. It is defined as a feeling of hopelessness, that is, that things are profoundly wrong and will not change for the better. I have experienced despair. Recovering from that pain and distress has made me passionate to help anyone, where I can, to find hope.
