You don’t say why you feel in low spirits, but rest assured, dear friend, your feeling of discouragement is perfectly normal. We all feel “down” at times. The important thing is to guard against slipping into despair.
Try this simple recipe which may transform your pessimism into feelings of hope.
Find another person, anyone, who may need a word of encouragement from you, or may need to know that you are thankful for something that person did. Tell that person you appreciate him or her. Mention something specific about what you admire. Did that person help you in some way? Did that person smile at you? Did that person do a favor for you? Did that person call you on the phone, or send a letter, or send an email/text, or mention you on social media?
So ... step out, step up, and tell someone else that you appreciate them. Do it today. You will experience uplift beyond compare.
