How To Not Let Things Get To You

    I was stood up the other day and it's not like it hasn't happened before. I am usually upset for like a lil then I get over it. This time I was very upset and for what reason? I hadn't been talking to this guy for months and I didn't drive out of my way to meet him. I was also rejected for a job possibility I was being very optimistic about and that crushed me. I think when I get upset over something like that, I let a lot of other emotions out at the same time. I don't wanna say I really let things boil up, I let it out but I think I am really NOT over it. I didn't let it out as much I should have.

    The title of this thread is really me asking how do you cope with BS? Part of me is like, "Oh well it happens and it sucks but gotta keep moving on" and another part of me is like, "I just wanna give up and crawl in a hole" It doesn't have to be just rejection or dating, it could be any disappointment

    It sort of depends on the situation ... I like to sit in complete silence and meditate and work things out in my head.

    I was stood up tonight by an RJer!!icon_mad.gif

    Lol, it's no biggie, but I was supposed to meet up with a fellow RJer at a bar for Pride, and I never found him. I did run into a few old friends, who were shocked by my beard and had to take turns petting my face.O_o

    I only had two beers and kept my shirt on the whole time.icon_lol.gif

    Acknowledge that and take your time and meanwhile do something that comforts you weather it is renting out a good movie, going out for dinner with your friends or meeting you mother or just taking a walk in the park.

    OP.. we all have a 'Breaking Point'..

    Sometimes things pile up and we snap..

    It might not have been that particular event ..but the sum of events put a damper on your day.

    Believe it or not working out helps!

    Running clears your mind, maybe for the moment.

    It first takes conscious effort to decide not to let things get to you. It also takes some thought behind the reason why things bother you so much. Little by little, you'll notice that things are improving.

    That lady should have visited Netherlands.
    The line would have been:
    You wait until it stops raining, don't wait up for sun though or your life will be over waiting.

    7 kids, one of whom wants to lose her virginity to the Nazi-youth mail man?

    Technically you would have me there, but I figure they're rich enough to send the lot of the off to boarding/military school.

    Merely an assumption.

    I'd imagine many, if not all, schools were taken over by Nazi education programs.

    By all means, let's discuss the ethical choices of fictional characters. icon_rolleyes.gif

    A deft combination of perspective and denial.
