Lately I have been feeling a bit discouraged and having to question myself a bit more. Few days ago I found out that apart from talking to God about how I was feeling, there was something that strengthened me even more and that was encouraging someone else. What I did whenever I began feeling discouraged was to call up someone or send a message of encouragement. Of course I might not have an idea of what that person is going through or they might not be going through anything but even those who aren’t going through any kind of challenge still need to be told they are doing well and they are appreciated. One of the most difficult things to do is to encourage someone when you are also having your issues, I used to be that person that would go silent the whole day whenever I was feeling overwhelmed but I guess God has His way of working in us and grooming us daily.
This exercise is something I started doing recently and I know God was trying to let me know that even when you are discouraged you can be a shoulder for someone to lean on, Beauty can come out of darkness.
I find this to be very therapeutic because whenever you encourage someone or I encourage someone I also feel like I am talking to myself and I become strengthened gradually.
What do you do whenever you feel discouraged? I would really love to hear from you.
Have an amazing weekend
