How do you cope when you’re upset?
I have a few things that I do. One, I lock myself in my room at home and avoid the outside world. I refuse to take phone calls and I don’t want to meet anyone either. I would like to surround myself with things that I like to do and love to have around me. I’d play my favourite music and try to watch some comedy skit or stand up comedy clip on Youtube.
That will usually put me in good mood and reduce some of the frowns. If there is a movie that I can enjoy and watch I would put that on. I would order my favourite food and enjoy that with a drink. Speaking of drinks, my favourite booze will go a long way to changing my upset nature. As long as I don’t drink too much!
Ofcourse if I still had my dog she would put me in a good mood. Dogs are magic that way. When you come back home upset, seeing the dog so happy to see you, wagging her tail and wanting pets and to cuddle with you. That would change anyone’s mood to a happy one. Also if you have a loving wife who wants to ease your troubles, that would be great. Maybe you can talk about it over a glass of wine and then enjoy dinner.
