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 🪄

✨ “You’re searching and don’t really understand what’s happening to you, but there’s bound to be something to come out of this situation. And probably even something positive. Keep hope, have confidence in yourself, and have an open mind.”

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
  • “Success isn’t final, failure isn’t fatal, it’s the courage to go on that counts.” Winston Churchill
  • “Our doubts are traitors and rob us of the good we could often gain because we’re afraid to try.” Shakespeare

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!

8 Reasons Why All Narcissists Are Hypocrites

If you know anything about narcissists, you'll surely be aware that they are extremely overly judgmental and critical, especially towards other people. Their faultfinding stems from their perception of ultimate superiority, and therefore legitimizes them in holding people to intimidatingly high standards 👑. However, although they may believe they are pretty much perfect, the reality couldn't be any more different, yet they are slightly more forgiving with themselves.

What Is The Tinkerbell Effect In Psychology?

Brilliant, ambitious, perfectionist... These words correspond to some people, especially women, who suffer from “Tinkerbell” syndrome. But as in all fairy tales, there’s a dark side... Just like Peter Pan’s fairy, they try to impress and are perpetually unfulfilled, compulsively seductive, and even manipulative 🧚.

What Is The Narcissistic Stare? - 5 Reasons Why They Glare 👀

Narcissists have a reputation for being amongst the most manipulative people out there, and rightly so! The truth is, these people are so good at the evil things they do because they operate under the radar and use covert methods to exercise their depraved missions. Now, one of the biggest and seemingly most unsuspecting techniques they use to manipulate and control their victims is staring. You're no doubt a little dubious about a stare being an effective tool in the art of manipulation, but it's true, a void and menacing look is one of the most intimidating and unnerving gestures that these folks turn to.

Are Covert Narcissists Dangerous?

The concept of covert narcissism, or as it’s also known, ‘vulnerable narcissism’ is a fairly recent one. Now, these terms may seem pretty harmless, but the reality couldn’t be any more serious. The truth is covert narcissists present themselves to the world as anxious, socially uncertain, sullen, and withdrawn, yet, in actual fact, they share the same grandiose and unemphatic traits as their exhibitionist counterparts 😱.

5 Scary Things A Narcissist Smear Campaign Involves

We hear so much about these emotional abusers in every walk of life that we are sometimes so overloaded with information regarding them, meaning we often miss the red flags that, in hindsight, seem blatantly obvious. These vindictive manipulators often use smear campaigns as a way of getting back at their victims and villainizing them publicly. That's right, these evil campaigns are an effective method for them to change the narrative of the abuse, and to present themselves as victims, when in reality they are the perpetrators of the terror.

Are Narcissists Lonely?

Loneliness is one of society’s biggest enemies, and none of us are exempt from it, not even the most devilish of narcissists out there. In fact, throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, 36% of Americans claimed that they have never felt lonelier, which sets a scary benchmark for the wider population 😔. Now, lots of us would no doubt immediately assume that narcissists are too independent and strong-willed to feel alone, however, the truth is they are often the biggest victims of loneliness, yet simply have trouble expressing their inner malaise.

Why Do I Feel Bad When People Don’t Message Me Back?

What if they were in fact a complete facade, fabricated to keep people away, in the hope of hiding their deepest darkest insecurities? 😱 After all, everyone has weak spots, even the most confident and put together of people, so why wouldn’t a narcissist deal with the same niggling doubts as everyone else?
