Nature of Discouragement

Last Update: July 07, 2020

Discouragement is a Powerful, Destructive Force.

Recognizing its Harmful Nature.

Understanding Discouragement .....

Is something we Choose. No one else is Responsible for our Discouragement

Is Universal. We lived in a Flawed World filled with Flawed People.

It can Recur. Triggered by something a person says or does.

It can be Temporary or Lifelong. Influence our Decisions, Actions, & Relationships as long as we Live.

Is Conquerable. Our feelings of Discouragement will be slowly replaced by Hope.

Very nice post, Jean. Discouragement can definitely be a huge detriment to our lives and work. And we are responsible, perhaps not for the discouragement, but for our reaction to it.

With 2020 Vision,

Good post Jean. Discouragement/negativity, can creep up unawares.
Always be aware of you thoughts and keep them from straying too far into the negative.
List things you are grateful for if you start to become discouraged, it turns things around.
