Realize that the emotion is steeped in the past and all that matters is now.
By recognizing the problem. Deciding what needs to be done. Then do it. The same way I fix everything else.
Music, exercise, read a good book that helps me escape, sex...
Bring up confidence inside to realize I can do it, and nothing to worry and afaid.
Do something for someone else. Get your focus off you. Best of luck!
I tell myself that I can do anything and keep telling myself positive things. I read lots of positive books.
I tapping, Emotional Freedom Techniques it works every time. Plus ask yourself the thoughts you are thinking - are they true?
I shift my perspective and simply make an active choice to be happy.
Time alone to have a bath, a think....a cry maybe, then some rest.
A new day begins and because it is new we can approach it in a new way.
Also, it's always helpful to make a plan for a few days ahead, some nice trip or meal or movie with a friend or brother...make the calls, confirm the event, book it and get ready for it.
Make a plan for a few days after that too; make the preps.
It's a life line into the next phase!
That fact I've realized I'm in a funk is the first step. Then I decide whether there is anything I can do or not. If not, I play some games, or something amusing and distracting, then sleep to clear my head. When I wake int he morning, if I am still in a funk, it's time to try soemthing new, literally. Learning something present too many new stumili to allow me to remain depressed.
great question Earl! after expensive studies on this subject i believe emotions were created to tell us we are out of balance. P.E.A.R. our Perceptions see one side of any/all two-sided event, which yields that Emotion, (good/bad) that produces an Action that gives us a Result. since scientists have proven ALL of life is made of "frozen light", which is based as a wave/frequency which has two sides equally balanced.
i used to write on paper "what are the benefits" to this "bad" event, person, situation. until i see both sides. sometimes one side has more smaller items to equal the larger "charge" of the event i am upset over.
Yardwork. That's one of the reasons I live in Florida. I suffer from Bipolar disorder and when I get in a funk, I take the radio outside and get some exercise and sunlight.
I think it's important to make a conscious effort to take your mind off of things. Do something active to get out of the mood you're in. Be surrounded by loved ones that are encouraging. That helps a lot.
Well ive had a friend that was addicted to meth. 1 day he got out of jail & never went back to using even with everyone else around him smoking & parting i his face. i asked him how he did it? He said he wake up turn on music & that was it. he'd just listen to music all day.

Take a step back and start taking inventory of all the things you are grateful for, that make you happy, and make you realize how fortunate you truly are. Make sure your life has an element of helping others.
An amusing, lighthearted site that can give you some perspective is quickmeme.com

You have to make a change in order to get out of an emotional funk. Whether or not you know why you are in this mental state, it is important to sit down and reevaluate things in your life. No one else can help you get out of it. You need to find the strength to figure out what needs to be changed and make the change in order to move on to bigger and better things.
Watch a feel good movie or program. Share with someone. Fill your life with positive things as much as possible. Smile when you even though you do not feel like it. Laugh. Take a walk. Don't deny that you are feeling funky: accept it, feel it, move on. Put one foot in front of the other. Sleep well. Challenge yourself. One or many of these may trigger you. Remember, you are unique and you are the only and best you in the whole world.

Okay so I'm expecting a lot of sexual responses to this but I don't mean it in this way. I know that generally speaking, the idea of being a good girlfriend is to give him space, be nice to his friends e.t.c but are there any smaller things that I could do. Like how girls love spontaneous kisses...
