Just when you think that Twitter is all about trolling and bashing people at the expense of other people’s self-esteem and public image, it comes up with positive stories that make us hooked to the platform even more. Remember how a tweet helped this food delivery guy follow his passion for painting or how a daughter’s tweet about finding a groom for her mother was praised online? So while we were looking for motivation to kick-start our week, we stumbled upon this tweet that is giving us hope.
A Twitter who goes by the name Scott Hechinger posed a question to his followers and the responses to his tweet are like sunshine on a gloomy day. Scott asked people to list the things that give them hope.
A positive question for this Saturday night:
What, if anything, gives you hope?

And out of the many responses that the tweet received, here are some that are sure to cheer you up.
As a psychotherapist, I couldn’t do my job if I didn’t believe in people’s capacity to grow and change. People only come to therapy because as troubled or unhappy as they may feel, they still have hope that life doesn’t have to be this difficult.

I bought a couple of sweet potatoes and they are sprouting.
They have no earth or water, and the leaves get glossier every day.
They remind me of the white flowers that grow out of cracks in pavement.
Tenacious, ferocious, unrelenting.
Life gives me hope. pic.twitter.com/TML7BKE6Ee

The next day is better as long as you are willing to fight for it! Nothing is permanent, all things are temporary that’s what makes them beautiful.
