When all else has failed, we still choose to hope against hope - because there is way too much to lose, too much at stake...perhaps a life, perhaps the ability to live and function on one's own, perhaps a source of income, or perhaps even one’s peace of mind.

When one is really that desperate, and not willing to take "no" for an answer, one keeps looking…keeps searching - hoping to find an alternate way... a way that could still turn thing around.

I am here to say that more often than not, THERE IS A WAY, even where there seems to be no way - if one refuses to give-up, is willing to block out all negative conditioning from the past, and determines to pay heed - to that still small voice inside, the voice of one's instinct.
