Motivation lagging? Self-esteem beaten up?

I spoke to a friend a few minutes ago who is doing his best to date.  He spoke of the difficulties he is running into, and I expressed my belief that it takes nerves of steel to date these days and requires a good self esteem not to feel too badly beaten up.

Many of the practices that are common in dating at this time are hard to live with.  The worst, and most frequent frustration, is having a date say that you are interesting, attractive, and sexually appealing, followed by no communication afterwards that you exist.  No response to a text, email, or phone call, depending on your style of communicating.  I hear this all the time.  Ouch!

I feel for him, and since motivation to keep trying anything in life is a precious commodity I thought of the video shown below.

Occasionally there comes along a rare person who, by their actions, has essentially written the book about making lemonade out of lemons.  Nick Vujicic is just such a person.  Born without arms or legs he came to terms with his experience and has made quite a life for himself.  You can read about him on Wikipedia.

Below is a video you won’t forget.  It’s about finishing strong in times of difficulty.  It’s funny, meaningful, and moving.  Enjoy!

Good luck to all of you out there who are looking for a partner or who need motivation for some other task.  Keep looking, and be healthy in your communications!
