we have experiences, expectations of every single thing we are into. Problems arise only when the outcomes does not meet(completely opposite) expectations. To this we add imagination , to imagine things, and thus end up programming ourself into a state which we are not actually are....which is we are sad, lost etc.  Other reason is we don't have much work to keep ourself busy, busy enough that we don't have time to think about things which were not upto our expectations.

Best things would be to keep ourself busy, when we are in one thing try concentrating in that (enjoy the moment). Going for a vacation we don;t have to think about office (we are not enjoying it) and later part we'll regret that we didn't enjoy our vacation. If kind of process loops through we end up programming our mind that we are not being/doing good.

Understand that we don;t have to worry about stuff which is not in our hands. We can be what we are and improve ourself. No point in rushing at things and not able to do anything proper.

Prioritising is important in life. work/personal/life etc.

I think in similar lines when i go little down. Spending time with friends, going for a pleasure drive, music, a party will help us a lot. Most important indulge thy self to relieve from every thing. We are masters of our self.

Ugh, my advice is don't take zoloft. I took it for 3 weeks and it made me worse- I became extremely depressed because I wasn't depressed when the psychologist told my doctor to prescribe it.

From what I hear, alcohol makes you depressed, not happy. So it's probably better to quit drinking.

And every councillor, psychiatrist, and psychologist I've ever talked to (total of 2, one school councillor and one psychologist) were crazier than just about anyone I'd ever seen.

The school councillor acts like she's in denial, she's ALWAYS smiling, but looks depressed when she's alone. The psychologist always used a plane analogy that scared me- "You're in a plane, your parents are the pilots, your brother and your sisters are there too. Your parent's bail out. What do you do?"- and no matter what I answered, he'd say -"No, don't fly the plane. The plane will fly itself."

I suggest that no one who is in any way involved with the airport or the air force should go to that psychologist.

The moral of this post: Find a councillor that you can trust, and who's a professional. If you go to one that you didn't pick youself, you'll probably end up worse off than you were before.

I find that rather disturbing.

Sweetheart, you re only 24.  Don't do anything rash because of a few bad weeks, even months.  Life is supposed to go up and down - that is it's nature.  You are young and haven't lived through the downs, and experienced the  " ups " that follow, so you wonder if life will ever get better.   Once you understand the rhythms of life, the downs will get easier because you won't lose hope.  Also, as you age the ups and downs become less extreme.  <p><br>The past is gone and the future is but a promise without a guarantee.  Try to see what there is to enjoy today.  Remember, 90 % of what you worry about never happens.  The secret of life is to keep getting up off the floor.  When God closes a door, he opens a window for you.  You have to help a little by looking for that window.  In other words, do what you can to help yourself and be patient.  And remember, you haven't lost hope just because you can't feel it right now.
