Some people find it hard to be encouraging. When a loved one tells you something traumatic like they are suffering from an ailment or they announce the loss of a loved one. It is not because they do not genuinely care about the presented situation. It is more likely because many people feel uncomfortable by sad and tragic events especially discussed amongst those whom are close to them. When words are sincere and heartfelt, they can be powerful and meaningful to the recipient. Words can also uplift spirits, encourage and inspire. Words used in a negative matter can also cause pain, hurt and degrade. When you encourage someone you uplift them and at times your words can assist that person during a time of healing. Encouragement can make a difference in a whole society.

It is human nature to view the negative aspect in any situation, but it is only when we stop to view what is positive about the situation, that we will be able to lend our encouragement. If you are only able to focus on the negative aspects, you are allowing yourself and others to dwell in negative feelings and thoughts. Negative thoughts, unlike positive ones can quickly spiral out of control and plague your thoughts. Because we all can choose our thoughts; if you decide to think positively you have chosen to have a positive outlook on life. This will make it easier to provide encouragement to your family and friends.
