Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation that we feel has no remedy. And yes, there are times that this is true and we have no choice but to move on. However, there are also times where we shouldn’t lose hope. Here are a few mental techniques to keep yourself hopeful in what feels like a hopeless situation:

1. Be appreciative: Evaluate the situation and see what you should be glad for. Think about the positives of the situation and how things could have been worse. Then, appreciate the situation you are in before fixing it. At the end, be glad you’re learning from all this.

2. Think it through: Most of the time — where there is a will, there is a way. This brings us to evaluating again, but this time in search of a solution or something to calm things down a bit. Sit down, think deep about what’s going on, and ponder it all until an idea comes to mind. Don’t be shy to ask for help either, two heads are better than one after all.

3. Be positive: It is easier said than done, but whenever you think of the situation negatively, push it out of your head. Think about what is to come and how things will be okay again. Look ahead. Things may look glum now, but they will get better. Positive thoughts can bring positive outcomes — like the law of attraction states.
