I think we’ve all been there.

I think they key is to worry only about what you can control. Obviously this is hard to do sometimes, but when I find myself worrying about hypothetical what-ifs I try to snap out of it. It just adds to daily stress that is real.

Change IS stressful.

Try to do things you enjoy and keep some sort of routine so some things are stable. Maybe exercise to burn off some steam. Watch a funny movie. Just take your mind off of your worries temporarily.

Things will get better. If something is going on that you don’t like, try to change the situation if you can. But again, only focus on what you can control.

I think that all the time 🙁 It’s one bad thing after another, and often doesn’t feel like life is worth living, but you just never know when that life changing/inspirational/happy/perfect moment will hit that will make it all worth while.

Life is hard and sometimes it sucks monkey balls.  I hear ya girl, sorry that you’re having a rough time!  I agree with PP that try not to worry about stuff that you can’t change or the little stuff.

@dancingunderthestars:  Aww sorry your feeling this way – I think it really does happen to us all at some point in time…. I have been feeling this way too of late due to various things going on in my life but watching the closing ceromony of the Olympics I was reminded of a very OLD song in England that my mother used to play and sing when we were kids.. and the corus lines goes…

“Always look on the bright side of life…….” 

So I have been singing it to myself over the last few days just to remind myself! lol 🙂

We are going through a rough patch right now (car got broken into, Fiance work hours cut, FSIL’s wedding just passed, my old car is dying, etc.) —- so I know how you feel. Just remember the bad time don’t last forever. Soon things will be on the up and up! *hugs*

So sorry you’re having a rough time. 🙁 I don’t know what your particular struggles are, but I can tell you that a lot of us have been in some pretty dark places – job loss, unemployment, depression, poverty, abuse, unplanned pregnancies, loss of loved ones. But keep putting one foot in front of the other, take care of yourself, and you can pull through to a brighter place. Sending good wishes your way!
