When times are tough, we all need a message of encouragement, like a big hug of words. Here’s something to help you.

Messages Of Encouragement For Difficult Times. Because Words Are Powerful 🪄

9 comforting messages of encouragement

When we’re going through a difficult time, it’s almost impossible to take a step back from what we’re going through. It’s often negativity that takes precedence and pushes us ➡️ toward the bottom of the abyss. A message of encouragement that you share or repeat to yourself is a kind of hope, a helping hand, except that it’s not always easy to find the right words (especially in troubled times), but this should help.

5 famous quotes to lift your spirits

  • “We can’t direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails”" Dolly Parton
  • “It’s never too late to become what you could have been.” George Eliot
  • “It doesn’t matter if you advance slowly, as long as you don’t stop.” Confucius

The power of words for our brain

The words you send to your loved ones or repeat to yourself is very important. Indeed, they leave an imprint on your brain because they transmit emotions. As such, they strengthen social ties, but they also have the power to trigger the thinking and imagination that will enable you to keep moving forward. If hurtful words make us suffer and sometimes even leave scars on us, so do words of encouragement and words of love or love letters. They act like plasters for our souls and make our backs grow wings. So words are never in vain!

Beyond words

In difficult times, everyday life can sometimes take a back seat. So don’t hesitate, in addition to your message of encouragement, to offer your help, and don’t be too insistent if the person refuses. Perhaps they don’t want to see anyone. If it’s you who’s in a bad way, ask for help from someone you trust, someone whose judgment you won’t fear. Not allowing yourself to be overwhelmed by daily obligations also helps you to get back on your feet more quickly.

Editor’s note: Words that do good

Words have an almost immediate calming power, they do us good, especially when they come from the heart and from someone we love. Lauren's words are sure to soothe those in need, so don’t hesitate to share them with your loved ones. The words of a psychologist will also ease your pain, as will the words you say during the session. Don’t forget that anything we don’t say is printed on us, so don’t hesitate to make an appointment with a psychologist if you’re going through a difficult time, it’s important...

🤗 Understanding yourself, accepting yourself, being happy... It’s here and now!

Psychological Abuse: Identify It To Get Out Of It

A little belittling remark here, minimizing our emotions there... So many little things that show us that we’re being psychologically abused. It may seem trivial, but that’s the problem.

Behavioral Disorders: The List & Their Definitions

I suffer from an eating disorder, and several people around me have a mood disorder. I’m not completely unfamiliar with behavioral disorders, or at least not these. However, there are several types of disorders and they can even affect sexual behavior. So how do you define them? Here’s a list and some definitions related to behavioral disorders.

8 Reasons Why Malignant Narcissists Are So Dangerous

If the title of this article hasn’t totally scared you away, then you are no doubt wondering what this beast of a person is really like. Well, a malignant narcissist is a step up from a typical narcissist and adds an antisocial personality disorder to the already intimidating mixture. Combined, these two personality disorders represent the relentless need for control, admiration, and power for selfish reasons, making folks with this diagnosis that bit scarier than classic manipulators. Here’s why these people are so terrifying, and how you can get your own back on them.

What Are The Weaknesses Of A Narcissist?

Each one of us has our own weaknesses that hold us back in life; be it at work or in relationships. However, on a more positive note, most of us have the will to work on them and transform them. That being said, once narcissists are brought into the picture, the idea that they want to work on their weaknesses doesn’t exactly seem feasible.

How To Camouflage Your Cellulite At The Beach

You were well on your way. You were holding on, motivated by the idea of finally having a bikini body this year. But then the lockdowns and the laziness all hit you at once... That’s right, your cellulite is still there and not ready to leave just yet. But guess what?! Cellulite is like a little pimple, either we own it, or we resort to using tricks to camouflage it.

I Never Thought I’d Say This, But I Hate Working From Home…

Work has always been a synonym of repression for me because it takes up so much of our precious time. Let’s be honest, a 9-5 job with a horrendous daily commute often means that work is sadly our sole occupation. So, when the Covid-19 pandemic struck over a year ago, and we were all ordered to stay home, I found it hard to hide my joy in front of my distraught coworkers; although thankfully my acting talents saved me. You can probably already tell, but going into the office every day was nothing less than torture for me. Yet, all these months later, I’ve realized that I despise working from home and would do anything to sit in my uncomfortable office chair once again!

Do We Always Need To Have The Last Word?

Today, I’m focussing on a habit that drives me crazy: wanting to have the last word.

But why do they always want to have the last word? What’s behind it?

I Still Suck My Thumb As An Adult

In general, thumb sucking ends around the age of 6. I say “in general” and not “normally”, because as an adult I don’t feel weird or particularly bothered by it. When I get stressed, I allow myself to let go and return to my childhood self by sucking my thumb. Those who know about it or catch me by surprise make me realize I should be ashamed… But is this habit a big deal? What if it makes me feel better? It’s certainly no worse than lighting up a cigarette or biting your nails…

Why Do Hugs And Physical Contact Make Me Feel Uncomfortable?

There are people who don’t like to be touched at all, and who are almost disgusted by physical contact. There are people who like to caress and be caressed for anything and everything, and there are people like me who always recoil when someone tries to touch them. Why do I shy away from physical contact? What if it’s all linked to the past?
