Encourage people going through tough times by reminding them there is a possibility of their circumstances changing for the better in the future. Urge them to remember the reasons they have held on for so long every time they feel like giving up.
Uttering the quote, "Just keep swimming," from the Disney movie "Finding Nemo" is a light-hearted way to lift people's spirits in difficult times. It can also be encouraging to remind them that, although they may not realize it at the time, many people learn their most valuable lessons during times of adversity. In addition to offering comforting words, ask them if there is anything you can do to make their suffering a little more bearable.
