Oh and P.S. I hope things get better for you and I am sorry for the bad things that are going on with you lately.

It's hard for me at the moment, but I turn to my parents, my faith, exercise, tv/movies. I fall back into that gloom though.

It is extremely difficult for me - especially since the commitments of work and school have become increasingly stressful the past few weeks - to remain positive. The only techniques that I can think of that remotely maintains a positive outlook for me is listening to music and eating. However, those commitments always remain in the back of my mind. Once they have been accomplished can I finally take a breather.

I find distractions to keep me from thinking about the negativity in my life. For example, I feel like I lost a close friend recently because of senseless drama, so I've been using my runs for marathon training to help me keep my mind off of her.

I've had such a hard week. From someone stealing a lot of money from me, terrible apartment management, to difficulties at work. How do you cope with everyday stress?

Make it a point to be grateful for everything good in your life. And believe it or not, it helps to be grateful for the bad things as well. God has a plan for whatever happens to you, and a bad thing could end up being a benefit in the long run.  :angel11:

Don't focus on the bad things. Push them out whenever they come popping into your head and replace them with good thoughts.  :in-love:

If you went to other countries where there is persecution, disease, lack of clean water, inadequate housing, etc., you would be more than thankful for what you have. We're still better off than so many other people in the world.
