Did you hear what they did this time? Within a group, it’s easy to start a conversation by mentioning the latest stupid, cruel, or unfair thing that an outsider said or did. It’s nice to know that someone shares an attitude, a frustration, or a laugh, and if you’re tuned in to what’s going on and thinking critically, you can find plenty to talk about. Unfortunately, talking at length about things that others have done wrong can also generate discouragement and distrust. I’d like to offer some strategies for staying encouraged even when there are many problems to address.
