Today, I wanted to talk about using the pronoun "one," as in "It gives one hope that tomorrow will be better."
There's nothing wrong with using "one," but it does sound rather formal.
I would go with "you" if you're talking in general terms:
"It gives you hope that tomorrow will be better."
You can send "one" packing!
