Overcoming despair

Today I want to let you know about a brief but very sensible article that will help when we feel a bit overwhelmed by the way the world is:

4 Ways to Overcome Despair

Here's  the first way:
1. Act. As Joan Baez once said, “Action is the antidote to despair.” If you despair about a problem or crisis in the world, do something. Choose actions that will lead to positive, sustainable, lasting solutions; that use your best skills; and that you enjoy doing. You’ll find friends and support in the process; see the positive effects of your efforts, and feel buoyed by the capacity of action to create change
