Disappointments in life.... October 07 2014, 0 Comments

Things do wrong, do not turn out as expected. Little or big walls come up in front of us and we get despondent, down - as yet again it feels like it's one step forward and two steps back. Whether it's the school child who doesn't like their art work and throws it in the bin or the adult who is rejected yet again in either a relationship or job appllication, or your illness has had another setback.... Disappointments come in every shape and form and in different depths of response.  If you stay in that negative response place then this can and does lead to depression - so better to nip it in the bud or start treating the cause of a longer issue. 

Gentian is the Flower for experiencing a setback - despite the disappointing outcome your outlook will become one of positivity, the cup is half full not half empty, it feels lilke you can take a step forward and keep moving. Gentian people can tend to be negaitive anyway so it certainly doesn't help when they have something go wrong. Gentian will instill in them to have another go. 

Compare:

Gorse - they've given up totally and won't try again

Hornbeam - they can't be bothered to do anything from boredom or monday morning feeling.

Larch - lack of confidence to try - "I can't do that"
