Quotes about Overcoming  |

"If you are in a period of discouragement because you are going through a trial and you are asking yourself, 'Why is this happening to me?' consider this: Never make a major decision when you are depressed. Often, when we get discouraged, we are tempted to say, 'Iím just going to quit' or 'I'm going to move' or 'I'm going to change jobs' or 'I'm going to file for divorce.' Never make a major decision when you are depressed, because at that time your feelings are unreliable and you cannot exercise accurate judgment. Your focus is blurry, and your perspective is distorted. Instead, face the storm head-on and donít get involved in self-pity."
