I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. The dreams I had not so long ago seem impossibly far off. The grind of climbing toward them doesn’t seem worth the effort of striving without satisfaction. I’ll never get there. I’m a clueless child, and I don’t understand what I’m doing or why. I just know I’m tired of trying.
This is the voice of “Discontent and Boredom,” better known as the Four of Cups.
Sometimes, it’s also my voice.
If this is where you are, I wish I had an easy answer for you. I don’t, beyond saying this feeling we get sometimes? Transitory. Like other Tarot Cups, we’re dealing in the realm of emotions, not objective facts. Emotions change. That knowledge can be helpful.
I also sometimes turn to people who love me to buoy myself. Or retreat into a book of one sort or another. Taking my head outside my own life into a bigger realm seems to help.
What helps you fend off discouragement?
