Have you ever happened to wake up in excellent mood and when you got to school/work something unpleasant occurs and your day is ruined. I'm experiencing this from time to time and i really find it very difficult to take control over my emotions. i don't know what the reason is - perhaps I'm an emotional person and i take everything happening around me too seriously. So, every time I'm feeling low i want to be alone and try to find solutions to my problems. Have you been in such situation as well? What do you do to get rid of this mood?

I once worked at a job that would just ruin my mood by walking in the door. I would call the person in my life who was able to cheer me up with just a word. One minute phone call could get me back to understanding my happiness meant more than anything.

I don't have such situations very often, because I'm quite cheerful person. But if I do have problems and when im feeling low, then it will be very low. I won't talk to people and I do everything alone. Just to refresh my taughts and to see , if I can handle it myself, and it annoyes me when other people feel pity about me.

well well well. I have always had this problem and to be honest there is nothing you can do other than just feeling low. just accept it and think of it as a cycle which is inevitable u feel bad and than u feel good and if u believe u gonna be feeling better in a bit....

Every morning I wake up I feel down, cause of my financial situation! What I try to do is keep in mind my goal I have for myself to keep at it constantly to pull myself up out of this slump! Taripre$

Right now I am at my lowest of lows; I just lost my job and my voucher to get a house,and then they denied my unemployment due to misconduct. I am like, Get out. But I notice that when you stop blaming people, things and go to God, your better off. I don't know how my life is going to go. I have heard folks tell me that it's going to get better. I don't see it, but God does. I suggest at a time like this, pamper yourself(bubble bath, manicure, pedicure) get in the right foot with the Lord and get to church. I also suggest Norman Vincent Peale's books, Robert Schuller, the Bible and some good uplifting music to keep you going. That is what I am doing. Also, stop blaming you. accept the thing for what it is, find the lesson, then keep on trucking..I hope this helps.

hi When I feel low, i take solace in the lotus feet of the God. I silently talk to HIM whatever I want to tell. I don't know why but I start feeling better. Afterwards, I talk to myself. I just remind myself that if i feel low it'll affect my health and other people around me will also feel bad. The 3rd and last option i use is to remember some of the joyous moments. And using these techniques, I slowly gain normalcy. But, i have seen the same thing to happen to one of friends rather regularly. Later on she had to see a doctor and now she is in good mental health. So, I think yours problem isn't that much serious, but unfortunately if you think that it's serious, please immediately contact a doctor. With best wishes, enjoy happiness.

when i feel down, i wanted to drink a bottle of soda. you know why, because it boosts my energy up and makes me think of solutions which i can't figure out a while ago because i was drowned by my emotions. i think it's just more on the psychological effects that made me think of solutions, but it worked.

I get those feelings occasionally, mostly when I'm having arguments with either my boyfriend or my parents. I feel so awful because I don't know how to fix them, and i really feel horrible when I know that another person is upset with me, and I can't do or say anything that will change that. I usually listen to some relaxing music( I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true) or try to get out of the house, or go shopping-that ALWAYS helps mend anything ;) I guess it's much different for women than it is for men. For eg. my boyfriend, when we argue, and I leave his place, he starts smoking, and drinking, of course not to the point where he gets drunk, but definitely more than usual. Men take a different toll on arguments than women. Cheers!

When I am feeling low,I prefer to be alone too.I would go out,aimlessly walk in the street and observe the brow on the people's face,guess what they are thinking.Some look happy and some look not.And I know I am not the only person unhappy.After a long walk,I would go back with a much better mood.

Just put on a smile to your face. Try hard to make yourself in a good mood.Life is short, no matter whether we are sad or angry, someday it will be gone, you will ferget all of that, it's useless to get yourself involved into this bad mood, think of mre happy things, and forget unhappy things, don't let the others bother you, you'd better talk with friends over interesting things or just do some physical exercises. Do not so concern about things around. learn to forget.

I'm quite an emotional person too and very sensitive, so quite often I'm upset or at a low ebb. The way I combat this is to put on some music, get myself bathed dressed and made up, and to go out for a long, quiet walk on my own. Nothing cheers me more than the sight and sound of nature... I love to be at one with Mother Nature and all her special gifts. To my mind, it's the most soothing thing ever. Brightest Blessings.

I have those moments wherein everything is fine till i went to work and something bad happen. It ruins my day but i tried to make things easier for me by not thinking so much about it. Sometimes bad things can happen and we have to deal with it.I always see to it that i thank God for everything that happen in that day wither it is good or bad. For me making it home safe is enough reason for me to be greatful to God for that day.

I tried to hide how I feel to everyone and pretend that I am still okay and trying to go with the flow. With that, I forget the sadness within me and enjoy. But when I really get upset, I would just very quiet and can't talk properly and being absent minded..haha. But I never take it seriously because I don't want it to control over me and I tried to be relax and feel happy.
