How do you encourage yourself?
When you have battled for years and held on to hope -- what do you do to keep going when you feel like you can't go one more day?
Simply, with my dreams. When there's nothing left around you to keep you going on, you need to refer to your dreams, all the more often. Be it a song, a TV show or an old picture of a beloved one.. and with the instant power you've gathered from it, attack your problem from a different angle. It sounds cheesy and it doesn't work miracles, no, but it's really the best thing one can do, in my opinion.
i pray to God,if i am honest he will definetly help me to overcome...this is my self belief in God and other part is living and moving forward with the best ...living relationship one have,it may be family,son,daughter..or ones wife...once you are a responsible man for then you owe your life to them and they are your driving force..
Nothing. I stand up and get back to work.
If I relied on anything else, If I put my weight on something, it is guaranteed at some point to fail.
My mind is fickle, it wants one thing one day, another the next.
Poems and stories are nice, but they are not a crutch.
Plans and dreams are useful, but can change at the drop of a hat.
Memories are comforting at times, but they are also fleeting and temporary.
My family is what is most important to me, but I think they would feel a little uneasy if I told them I drew my strength from them, and that my world would crumble without them.
Living without a middleman to your happiness seems to be the best route; it strengthens that part of you that is most crucial, the only part you can only ever truly rely on.
I'm by nature a plodder, one that keeps going at a slow pace, through endurance, making progress one step at a time. The better the cause, the longer I endure.
Of course, this is not best applied to all things in life, but personally, it depends on the type of person you are.
You have asked a very valid question. It's a real situation for real people. Whatever you're battling, I would say, take it to the Lord in prayer. That's how I encourage myself. I read the Bible and allow the scripture to speak to me since there is a word in there for every situation under the sun. I commend you for holding on to hope for years. . . that's truly what faith is. May be you've come too far to give up.
Wishing you blessings and strength to go on.
By believing in own one be encourage, remove impossible word from your dictionary and place where there is a will, there is a way:)
I encourage myself by remembering God's promises to me and holding tight to them regardless of my circumstances. I also gain encouragement through God's Word, prayer, praise & worship, speaking positive affirmations, and from communicating with positive people whom I have grown to trust to give me godly counsel and not worldly counsel.

Would you encourage or discourage a preteen obsessed with prepping foran apocalypse? If you had a preteen who was becoming a bit obsessed (as in pretty much the only thing they talk about or want to spend money on) with prepping how would you react?
