Advice for Anyone having a Bad Day

Tue Sep 11, 2018 1:42 am

Find a friend, share your story with him/her, cry together for some time, collect the tears, and make some salt water taffy with it!

What if somebody is having a bad day because they have no friends
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

I don't like taffy. I need an alternative.

Perhaps go out, make it a good day along with some new friends, and then you’ll have friends!

ALWAYS remember that no matter how bad your day is, there is always some poor sod who is getting worse than you. :checkmark:

Schadenfraude? I always felt that was a little psychotic or sadistic. I get it, that it's normal'ish, but I never found it consoling.

Bad day? Running, biking, reading, making holes in paper...these are the things that make me feel better after, or during a bad day.

While you're always good for perspective here...

I'll just add that I do agree (I hate the term first world problems, because if ever there was a more useless thing to think...) Yes, it's not consoling.

But for whatever reason, the thought of 'well this will be a funny story later' has seemed to work out...

This seems to work because I haven't died yet (or wound up living in appalachia; same thing) and in the end, I get something to do a tight 5 with.

There are few problems that happen where I can't imagine my life two hours from now... YMMV.

That works. Many things that constitute a "bad day" can be laughed at later, or not seem so bad, in retrospect.

Many things, but certainly not everything.

I've had my share of "bad days", that won't be funny in retrospect, over the last 18 months, and sometimes you just need to ride it out.

If you see someone you suspect is "riding it out", be there for that person.

I take inventory of the bad situation and determine what I can change and what's out of my control. I try to address the things I can change and let the rest go. No need to fret over things beyond your control. Eventually, you learn that only about 10% is something you can do something about. Just take a deep breath and pray for tomorrow to be better... and make it that way.
