It is officially Fall 2011. I can’t wait for all the pretty moments to come to me! I am already getting hyped about Holiday season as well. Hope this year’s Thanksgiving is extra thankful and special. Hope this year’s Christmas is extra home-zy and loved. Woooooo so want dress up nicely and sit in a cafe enjoy all the jazz~
This may not be my greatest year after all. But, I think I am still having a pretty damn good time. Gained a little bit here, gained a little bit there. Lost a little bit here, lost a little there. I NEED TO GET RID OF THOSE THOUGHTS AND PUT MYSELF TOGETHER. 加油.
Have a good cry. Sometimes the sadness stays inside your head if you try to force yourself to be happy. Try to let the tears out at the most appropriate time, mainly the best time when you are alone. Do this, and you might feel more relieved of your sad feelings, as if it “got off your chest”.
And warning to this process of getting happy is:
Sometimes people eat when they’re sad or stressed out, but this is not the best idea. Sure, it might make you feel good, but eating won’t cure you, you’ll just feel bloated and put yourself in a tougher situation. However, some people find eating difficult when they are particularly upset or sad. This is just as detrimental to well being as overeating. The brain cannot function properly without the carbohydrates, proteins, fats and other nutrients it needs. This can lead to irrational decisions, decrease in energy and listlessness.
Do not isolate yourself. This is especially important if you are depressed very often. You might just want people to leave you alone, but don’t make yourself be with no one else around. Don’t push your friends away and try to regularly participate in social activities that you enjoy or don’t mind doing.
Don’t start doing irresponsible and irrational things. It won’t make you truly happy and will only end up giving you more problems. If you don’t normally drink/do drugs/smoke, then don’t get anywhere near it when you’re sad; you won’t think clearly and regret it later. Don’t do any self-injury either, it will just cause more pain and trouble.
Dont take your anger out on someone else. Instead, punch a punching bag or a pillow
