Dealing with it.
    #1761373 - 07/30/03 12:35 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

What strategies do you use when you feel down and you don't know why? Or alternatively, how do you deal with it when you feel down because you are stuck in a situation where any action taken to resolve it would be unpleasant?

I know it's very general, but I'm having a hard time articulating the way I feel to myself.

I smile and wonder how many other sufferers are worrying about completely different shit right this minute.

heh once you articulate a question, you might just recognize the answer.

I feel like I'm looking for answers that I know I'm never going to find.

Maybe it's just little things, building up, and I lose perspective of the fact that I'm really just bummed out by 10 little problems which seem to have wound up into a big knot.

It's probably both. It's generalized, philosophical angst (sorry if that sounds pretentious) and personal things. Sometimes it just doesn't go away. I can't distract myself forever.

Oftentimes, one will find many answers once one stops LOOKING for them

Something worth trying is calling up someone who you haven't gottetn in touch with in a while. Anything to stir things up and break the monotony of your persisting problems.

You'll be fine. You're tough, you know that. Just hold it some more- It gets better, that's obvious, I hope.

It's funny you mention calling someone up I haven't gotten in touch with in a while.

A lot of what bothers me is the past. I feel that the past, my past, is always unreconciled and not understood. I move towards the future, looking at an education and towards a career which I hope can help me understand and close the past. I doubt that I will live long enough to understand my past with the level of scientific understanding that I want. I will aim for it.
Feeling that I doubt I have answers forthcoming doesn't help. It makes me feel like I should change my approach to the future, and close myself off. The way I do things now, I feel like I'm creating the possibility of more things in my past that I'll one day be struggling to understand. By the end of it all, I don't want to look back on a lifetime that I struggle to understand and feel is unreconciled. In some sense, I'd be happy keeping my life cut off from others and simple.

Try not to spend so much time in the past and in the future that you forget you have to shape that future by exploiting "the Now" through action.

Give it time and resign yourself to struggle or, if you have to, drag yourself through it until it gets better (which sooner or later it usually invariably does).

Also, sometimes we grow and change from how we were in the past. Don't let it have such a great hold on you; be who you want to be - if you don't know who that person is, then spend some time with yourself and try to find it out. Don't know if that'll help you any, but I had issues with my past, too, that weren't really resolved until I decided that my past doesn't really have as much bearing on who I want to be as I thought it did. You'll be okay. You have your life to live, especially if you are young you probably still have a lot of it left in front of you.

Strength and peace to you.
