I like some of the comments. Good folks here. Sometimes we need to regroup. Sometimes our attitude needs a swat on the bum. I like this, from the movie, HIDEAWAY: "“You can't change the direction of the wind, but you can adjust your sails.”
Usually a little "time out" works for me...
Grit my teeth and put one foot in front of the other until the feeling passes or eases up. Giving up is not an option. Physical activity, like running, helps me think things through
Well.. maybe it's time to give up.. I will think backward how I feel about it.. If there was so many times I found reason to give up maybe it's time.. No ? Different case ?
I think of all the people in the world who are a lot worse off than me. Then I stand tall, look the world in the eye and set about finding an answer to my problems
I carry on, my wayward son.
slap the crap out of myself and carry on
