This thread is for users of /hope/ and visitors from other boards to advertise their favorite boards. The OP post will contain a list of what I consider to be the sister boards of /hope/ even if they don't know it, yet, as well as a periodically updated list of current boards of interest.

Sister Boards:












This list will be added to as I discover boards that share parts of our mission and/or outlook.

Boards of Interest:



Go out, /hope/fuls, and help your fellow anons! Tell them there is /hope/.

>>>/sad/ - discussing depression and its related issues while trying not to be all /r9k/ about it.

This board is dedicated to collaberation between 8chan anons in order to help their fellow anons, especially those who are suffering from depression, social isolation, addiction, and all the other plagues peculiar to imageboard users. If /kind/ is for kind words, /hope/ is for everything that goes above and beyond words. Users may use this board to either receive or give aid and comfort, and coordinate with other anons to provide anything from companionship, education, advice, and even material assistance. It was begun by /christian/s interested in doing charity work among a demographic they feel strong kinship with, and which is neglected among mainstream society because it is relatively unknown. This is not a Christian-specific board, however, and all are welcome as long as they abide by the rules and come in a spirit of charity and love for their fellow anons.

The rules can be found at: https://8ch.net/hope/rules.html

I don't know where exactly to go with this, but I want to relay something that's been helping me get out a few bad times, I randomly discovered this board, and /hope/fully this mental exercise will help anyone passing by.

It starts with your heart. Now, there are a lot of places in your body you can think about, but what I want you to do is focus on your heart, the place you've probably been neglecting- a place a lot of people have been neglecting emotionally because the idea is infantilized. We've been taught to treat it as something cartoons and cheesy movies yes, that it's "too childish" to talk about your heart they say. Hurt people say it's "Just an organ that pumps blood through you," people who say that, have broken or stunted hearts. People put you down emotionally because they're been hurt or conditioned to shut themselves out of their emotions.

Forget these people, let them go, they have zero control you, your heart is fine, and if it's hurt you can heal it.

Focus on your heart, imagine it, feel it, meditate on it. Ask yourself "what does my heart think is fun?" You will find that thing that your heart thinks is fun, and when you do, do it. How does it feel to do this? It should feel amazing. Now, keep listening to your heart, and use your head to find what your heart wants. look for what makes your heart feel good, and think about how, what where can you achieve this.

Have faith, it will come to you. You will find what your heart feels, listen to it.

This thread will be for anons to discuss the subject of /fit/ness. Post your fitness questions, fitness advice, fitness resources, and blog your fitness journey! Even if your achievements are modest, we will be here to give you moral support. Don't be a sad cunt; be a sick cunt! We're all gonna make it, brah.

I will start us off with the two infographs I have in my very lonely /fit/ folder.

Hello /hope/,

I made this thread to satisfy a verbal agreement.

I am planing to an hero after my school's semester is up. I am not doing this because I am depressed or have suffered any kind of lost, in fact I have a moderately comfortable life. The problem is twofold, the security that is by the grace of my mother is coming to an end and I will have to wage slave soon I am not saying I am entitled to be taken care of by anyone, but by the same token no one is entitled to my labor or time, but the problem comes up when I have on more food to eat, and I would rather take the quick painless way out, then weeks of starvation I understand, then the question is there anything to work, so you stay live to experience it, and the answer for me is no. I don't enjoy learning, being around other people, food, exercise, I get no sense of accomplishment from anything.

I am 18 and in college, no friends, and my mother works too much to notice me.

I was told /hope/ would be able to 'help' me, not that I am see what I need help, but it isn't like I have anything else to do.

I have learned a lot since I made the thread. Still don't think I was wrong when writing the OP, but after learning about genes, the brain, the purpose of depression, and how free will isn't a thing, I know where all of it was coming from. gave myself a reason to persist at least.

was a retard tho, could have got a shot-gun from wal-mart

thanks for your confidence tho

Hello hope.

I'm mostly here to vent, I'm sick of venting to people I know, it just makes me feel terrible and I "cheer up" right away because I can tell it's just making people uncomfortable.

I'm depressed, which I'm sure is little surprise. I'm not exactly suicidal, I don't hate being alive I just don't feel anything. I don't feel anything from accomplishments or tasks; any time I finish something, especially something that was a tough challenge, I immediately forget about it all and move onto the next thing.

I live with my dad, partially out of choice but partially because he's old and needs the company / the help. I live here with my brother, who is mildly autismo. You wouldn't tell he has issues but he's definitely not capable of taking care of himself alone.

I've had relationships, but my self-destructive tendencies always caused them to end in one way or another. I got low enough to where friends suggested I seek therapy, which I saw for 2 years until my insurance expired.

For a little bit I was feeling good but now I can tell I'm slipping back into bad habits. I'm just…unhappy. Nothing excites me, nothing is there to keep me pursuing anything. If my family wasn't around I'd end it already, I just can't be bothered.

I'm tired of working, I'm tired of people, I'm just tired. I look at death like a big rest, like I can finally lay down and close my eyes and sleep.

Not kissless, but I'm a virgin. Will be 30 in 4 years. Should I bother or is it okay to just sleep?

Learn some charity and don't argue for the sake of arguing, you'll have a much better time on the one and only /christian/ board.

In the meantime cool down and repent in this fringe dimension for heretics and gnostic apostates. Peace peace peace

Two of the closest people in the world to me are having some money issues. Being a broke ass college student I have nothing to give them but my time and effort sharing this link in hopes people are kind enough to help. They've been so kind and wonderful to me and I just wish I could help more. So I'm doing what I can and ask if maybe people could give a dollar or two? I'm really sad they moved but they deserve to start their new life off better than this. If nothing else, enjoy the phone wallpaper posted and continue with your day

This is how dead this board is: This is the first thread that survived the zombie-fication of threads back in 2016

Almost all the threads are dead. Including the three pinned threads.

Isn't that sad? This is like one of those old, abandoned, soviet-era buildings.
