It is common among people that we lose hope and let our dreams die in front of our eyes. It is understandable that the world is full of discouragement and one has to be very strong or to be intelligent to build his own world.
Whenever we struck with some kind of disappointment, we take a step back or we just fell down. What can help us in such situation is to be patient and try to stand still as long as the thunder of discouragement passes away. Then we can move forward right from where we were standing.
It is important to know here that being patient is not waste of time or energy. It strengthens us and energizes us to get our journey going and we realize this only when we face the disappointment without fear.
