I have this struggle staying positive. I mean I just can't figure out what to do and what to tell myself. What do you do in case you feeling low and want to be positive. That's why asking others on mylot and other places on how to be more positive.

I agree with Rahul. Stop whatever you are doing and take a deep breath. And another. And another. Empty your mind and just concentrate on deep breaths till you find yourself a bit calmed down. Your mind will be constantly talking, piling one problem on another. The trick is to shut it up. It works for me. I still have to practise a lot, though. And for every problem your mind comes up with, order it to think of a blessing you are grateful for. If it can't come up with gratitude, then it has to shut up. ;) A beautiful quote to sum this up "The soul always knows how to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind"

I think we focus too much on always feeling positive. Our other, less desirable feelings are just as needed as the good ones. When you feel down, let it happen. Feel bad and feel sorry for yourself for a few minutes or hours. Let all the negative out. Then get drunk! Works for me lol

I struggle also and heck I even went to school for many years of trying to understand psychology against the human mind and I still cannot 'always' have the perfect day or flow positive all the time', but I figured something wonderful out: When I did not expect a positive attitude 'all the time', realizing things get in the way of messing that up naturally, I could accept a mediocre position with grace instead of grit. In other words I let go of totalitarian thought and chose a middle ground, saying okay I got this but can he or she get it too . . .

You have to count your blessings one by one.
