Everyone needs encouragement,
Everyone needs to be believed in,
Everyone needs someone to push them a little,
Everyone needs a boost,an incentive to keep going,
Everyone needs to believe in themselves, everyone needs to be able to encourage themselves,
You need to be able to tell yourself that you can keep going.
Because, if you don’t believe in yourself, it’s going be hard for someone else to believe in you.
You have to love and accept yourself before others can love and accept you.
You dream your dreams yourself, you know better how you want to be, how you want to feel better than others.
Because, people won’t always be there when you need them.
Your best friend won’t always be around,
Your parents might be preoccupied when you need them,
Your spouse might be having his/her own issues to deal with.
Everyone you would need at that time of your depression, lack of enthusiasm, at your down time may not be there.
Because everyone has and always would have their own issues to deal with and yes! They won’t always have the right words and things to do to make you feel better.
What then is our solution to reduce dependence and to accept well the situations that we have to handle ourselves?
God never leaves nor forsakes us.
He knows us better than we know ourselves.
He knew us and was already taken care before we where even conceived.
He feels what we feel.
He never gives us more than we can handle.
He has promised he’d see us through every situation.
He has done it before. He is the same God, He is I am, hence, He can and will always do it again for us.
Go to God, Go to his Word and you shall find Solace, Bliss and Peace.
He’d envelope you with all you need to go through it.
Secondly, Consult your inner self!
A very common flaw now,
A fault that most people possess now,
We look outside for happiness
We feel that if we have this or that we’d be happy. We have neglected our inside, the true source of Happiness, Of Joy!
Materials things, People, Places won’t always be available but
Us, Our within, Our inner Man is ever present.
If we start looking on our insides, we find ever flowing, non-shaken Joy and Happiness. Looking within, guarantees Ever present Joy (Even when the outside is in turmoil).
We have to start encouraging ourselves…
With God’s promises, With the little efforts we make, with our best effort (even if it looks not good enough. — but hey! REMEMBER though, That you best efforts are The Best enough).
Encourage yourself with past victories (If you could achieve something in the past, You have the abilities to Achieve another -greater one- Now and in the Future)
Encourage yourself with Fun memories, Times that made you laugh, times with friends and Family (this times would bring a smile to face and can lift you off a bad mood).
You have a right to be happy, Nobody, nothing has to key to your happiness except YOU.
