There are some people who are feeling incredibly low at the moment.
Even discounting their own personal issues, they can look at issues in which they have a vested interest and see how they are faring poorly. They may have suffered defeat in a cause they passionately supported. They may see a favourite notable person come under severe pressure. They might have a concern in business that suffers from a significant decline in shares. These factors may converge leaving the overriding impression that they are onto a loser.
I can relate. In the midst of that feeling can come a sense of despair at matters not turning for the good anywhere at any time.
This is not that article that encourages you that it will be alright in the end. This is just to let you know that it is a good opportunity to reflect on the motivation for holding those interests in the first place and seeing how they match up to the values that really matter in your life.
A brief reflection on those issues can at least lead you to reconsider things in the light of what matters. Also sometimes in doing so, you may gain some perspective that even if you are onto a loser, you may have won something more valuable in the process.
