    When life gets you down, what brings you up?

    We all face difficult times and struggles. How do YOU remain positive?  What gives you faith?

    When I get down because of negative circumstances, I have found that getting my eyes off myself is the quickest way to relieving the feeling of discouragement.  I've done some volunteer work, helped a friend move, listened when someone else needed to talk.  My problems seem to shrink when I handle the blues that way.  I don't always do this, or I wait too long to start, but it does work when I practice it.

    Well I used to smoke herb, but I wouldn't recommend it, I'm not against it however, it's really expensive and illegal in most places in the world. Now I usually just play Mortal Kombat, it's funny how fast kicking the shit out of a virtual character relieves  stress! Other than that, work does help, anything distracting really.

    My difficult times and struggles right now center around osteoarthritis, and I concede that is it a challenge.  I have learned to be the "thought police," especially in times of stress.  If I once give in to negativity and feeling sorry for myself, I can go to places I don't want to be.  I try to nip it in the bud.  This doesn't mean I'm always successful!  I  just become very vigilant and for every nasty thought, try to replace it with a better one until the bad ones go away.  I've written a hub here about depression and one of the things that has helped me pull out of it or even avoid it entirely is not giving in to gloomy thoughts.  Music lifts my mood sometimes.  But mostly I believe that we choose what we think about, what we give in to.  I love a quote by Abraham Lincoln, and I think it's so true:  People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.  I'm not a church person, but I do have a full spiritual life.  My favorite scripture in the world is this:  Be still and know that I am God.  That is what gives me faith.

    Changing thoughts. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.

    Another thing that helps is to cultivate appreciation. If we remind ourselves of all the things we truly feel appreciation over, this can lift the spirits.

    Our self-talk also plays a roll. It is good to watch thoughts and if necessary change these so they are more constructive and less self-defeating.

    Yes! Whenever I am down and feel very depressed, I have learned a great deal to play music especially that of Christian gospel type that will lift up my spirit and after that I visualize the solution coming right my way in a miraculous way. Then I go to sleep immediately. After this I have found that I feel so refreshed and within some days or hours the solution just come and present it self like a solution to a jigsaw puzzle.

    Anyone here can try this and give me a feed back. Love you all!

    When there are problems, even serious ones, they cannot keep me down for a long time. I have learned the hard way to accept things as they come, so I neither hope for miracles nor become weakened by problems.

    Being human, I tend to wallow in my agony. For example, before I begin to relax I will listen to music that makes me furious or depressed and feel even more sorry for myself. As the old saying goes; "When it rains, it pours."


    But, once I finally become vulnerable I use a wide variety of resources to cheer myself up as life is quite complex. Be it talking it over with my wife, writing, praying, laughing it off with friends, lifting weights, gardening, running or just listening to music (generally, I stick to classical when I'm fuming).

    I have always wondered what gives me faith and hope. Even when all light seems to have dissipated I have always been able to carry on. Perhaps, I have been given the gift of endurance. But, I suppose it is hope for something more that essentially keeps me positive.

    Just look in the mirror and smile. Take a deep breath go to your happy place. Changing your thoughts goes a really long way in changing your circumstances. It is very important to break the flow of negative thoughts streaming in your mind and pulling you down.

    If you cant do that simply distract yourself with music a tv show maybe cook something or anything which momentarily diverts your mind to something else.

    You will suddenly realise things are changing around you. Focusing on everything awful is disastrous.

    Lastly just like everything in life even the down is temprorary and will change. Nothing is permanent!

    Its funny that you ask this question right now, because I am listening to a sermon by Ken Hutcherson that is talking about that.  I remain positive because this world is not my home.  As bad as this world can be, it will be the only hell that I will ever know because I have accepted Jesus as my savior.  If i did not know Jesus, that would be depressing because it is the only heaven that i would ever lnow.

    I find staying positive, associating yourself with loving friends and engaging in positive acts of self care help to keep me above water.

    But there are times when even strength of character, will power and everyday faith start to crumble, ie, at times of depression and severe trying events.
    At the lowest point in life, when I feel powerless or incapable to carry on, I was blessed to have special help from above. I have just recently written down two such personal encounters. I wrote them with the belief that others could also relate to them and find hope and new strength.
