Are there people around you who feel discouraged and you think that they are capable of doing better in their lives after multiple failures of attempting to reach their goals?
The social cognitive theory states that in society our thoughts are influenced by our own personal experiences and the experiences of others also help us to understand certain phenomena in our societies.
I would like to point out that words such as “I told you so” shouldn’t be used to destroy someone when they are already down,words of encouragement can bring them up again only if…
You have fully experienced the same situation,then you are fully equipped to encourage them and give them tips on how to fix things for the better,for instance an ex-convict can motivate troublesome learners to respect everyone around them.
Those who are discouraged also have to be attended by only individual and not a group of people who might make things worse.
Remember…words cannot be taken back therefore individuals need to be really careful in relation to the words they use when they talk to someone who feels like a failure.
Through support and attention we can uplift one another as individuals,because even the strong-willed individuals break down at times which is normal.
In closing,individuals should learn to listen to one another and approach situations in such a way that they do not make others feel worthless.
