How to Overcome Hopelessness

Masterclass with Insights from Lua Weatherdon (Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW)

It’s common to experience hopelessness after narcissistic abuse.

Hopelessness is an emotional state characterized by a lack of hope, optimism, and motivation. 

It often involves a feeling of despair or a belief that one’s situation is insurmountable and unlikely to improve. 

Some common thoughts you might have if you’re experiencing this are:

  • “Nothing is ever going to get better.”
  • “I can’t see any way out of this situation.”
  • “There’s no point in trying anymore.”
  • “I feel like giving up; nothing makes a difference.”
  • “It seems like happiness is something I just can’t achieve.”

If you can relate to those thoughts, this masterclass could be for you.
