  1. I have found a very effective way for me personally to deal with discouraging situtations. When faced with a difficult situation that I cannot change I have learned to refocus my thinking away from the negative and toward the positive. Sometimes this coping skill is challenging to apply but when I am able to accomplish it I deal with discouragement a lot better.
    I try to remind myself that God takes us through difficult days to grow us. I ask, God what are you teaching me here? I know what I CAN’T do to change my situation. God tell me what I CAN do and help me to look for the good in what I am dealing with.
    To me it is kind of like the old Lamaze technique I learned for childbirth. Find a focal point, something you enjoy looking at, and focus on this positive image as you press through the difficulty.
