Do you let it keep you down or does it motivate you to do better, to try harder? I let it motivate me. It's hard though. It's hard to not feel down when life seems to throw everything at you. I look at it as a way to prove my strength and a lesson will follow the hardship. How about everyone else?

I know times are hard, and everything around mwe is hard, I just come here online and I work hard as I can, to earn my money, and this help keep my mind off of everything, that is hard going on around me, the harder I work the better I feel.

I hear you. I find myself venting on hee and it helps a lot. Working hard and focusing on the good things in life keeps my mind in a positive state.

Hi I totally agree with you...I always try to remember the old saying, when life gives you lemons.... make lemonade...I just don't feel to stay in a down moment is good for me...life still goes on with or without us so I just pull myself back up and keep on keeping on.....

I admit it makes me feel sad and down, and it's okay to feel that way. What's not okay is when we stay down and depressed for long. After venting out and releasing our feelings, we should feel better, dust ourself off and try again and do better this time.

when life gets rough i take each day as it comes. i get on with my daily routine and try to push the problems away from my mind. thoughts of these problems return before i go to sleep and that's usually the time that i wallow in my miseries.

It has in the past motivated me to do better and try harder. Here lately it has seemed as if I have been bombarded with a lot of life's problems and it has really brought me down. I'm working on getting through this and I hope that soon things will calm down and that I will feel better about my life.
