Those Days…

Around this time of the year, it seems that “everyone” is celebrating and partying and just having fun, in general, right? But that is wrong. There a probably a bunch of people who are sad right now.
You, reading this, might even know someone who feels down right now. Or it could even be you
And it could be for a lot of reasons. You could be fighting with a  family member; you could have just broken up with someone; you might be missing someone; you could have just been fired from your job or it could just be one of those days where nothing seems to be going right.
Even though I talk a lot about being positive in these types of times; it’s okay to just feel miserable. You don’t have to talk to anyone or go out of the house or anything. Just feel the misery that you want to.

But after this period of self hating and loneliness, you want to feel better about yourself. And you don’t want to go call up a friend because you feel like you look ugly and gross and hence, you don’t want to leave the house.
So what do you do to make yourself feel better?
There are a million things you can do but I think that taking a nice long and hot shower to start of with always helps. Letting the warm water wash the grime, dirt and overall “disgusting feeling” you’ve had can help you feel a lot better. It’s like washing off a tonne of baggage, yeah? And by using a nice, sweet smelling shampoo or soap – you can stop smelling like the clothes you’ve been wearing for ages and start smelling like a new person ready to take on the world again.
After this, you can do a bunch of things
You can just unwind and read a book in bed.
Take your mind off whatever is bothering it and envelope yourself completely in a different world. A world where you’re someone else – a witch, a vampire, a girl in the 1700s ? Anything you want.
Paint your nails a colour you would never have before! 
By doing this, you’re creating a new image of yourself and hence able to think and act different to how you were before. (Preferably something bright, vibrant and lively!
And then there is always the delicious method. 
Go cook something that will make you salivating before you even take a bite out of it. Or if you’re just a horrible cook – order something / get someone to buy it for you hehe. Eating delicious/good food makes you feel good too. I mean, how many of you have felt happy after eating something that tastes like dirt?
There are many things that you can do in these times. 
And you should always remember that this feeling doesn’t last forever so don’t do something that you might regret later. I believe that for every time you’re sad; something good will come out of it. Just like how even the darkest night will eventually pass, and the sun will come out in the day. You just need to open your eyes and step out of the darkness. And if anything, you can always talk to me.
(Feel free to add me on MSN)
I find that talking to a complete stranger with no bias can always help.

    Good post, sweetheart. :] I guess since it is this time of the year and everyone's out celebrating, that we sometimes forget that not everyone's having a blast. :(

    I find that taking a shower definitely helps. I usually play games until I fall asleep to help me take my mind off things. :3

    Oh and I also like to eat a lot of junk food too…. even when I'm not sad. >:D

    Aw what a sweet post :) When I feel down, I like to just stay in my room and do something that will distract me. Sometimes it's not always good to isolate yourself but at the time, that usually seems like the best thing to do.

    The things I do are listen to various music on my iPod, play a game on there or go online and just surf the web. I eat snacks like chocolate because it makes my taste buds happy x)

  • Ailing ♥

  • Elisa ♥

  • Amy

    re: LOL! omg!!! >ww<!!!

  • Noelle

    Great blog, and so very true! When I feel down, I read a fun book or study. When I am having a really, really bad day, I will probably start cleaning the house with some great music on the background! Really helps :)

  • Caroline Josephine

    Good advice :)

    I always allow myself a good moping session, then I take a hot shower, get all dressed up, do my make up carefully and force myself to go out and leave my house. That usually helps to pull me out of whatever funk I'm in.

    If I'm really down, I usually just lay in bed and watch some of my favorite TV shows.

  • Jilliancat

  • Rocking Doll Museum / Diabetic Lolita

    It's sometimes very hard to step out, but we just have too!

    And I don't know in what item your were interested in? Maybe we can work something out?

  • siwing

    your blog posts are so inspirational ^__^

    when i feel down, i usually try to sleep it off.. i love sleeping. lol.. and i just usually wake up forgetting about it.. but if it's something really serious, then going shopping or treating myself to a cup of frozen yogurt usually helps my mind off of things..


    oh this is a darling post, you are so gorgeous!
    painting nails definitely helps..not sure how!! :D
    shopping is good too, as is lots of hot chocolate and a chick flick.


  • Cassidy

  • P o o p e r

    You are so considerate and understanding, you'll grow sick of me saying this but I love this! xD Your post really did cheer me up, even though I've been fine it's just a reminder that even if things do go wrong that its ok to feel down but to also try to cope with it after you've let out that tension. You're going really help out a lot of people with this post!

    Whenever I feel down I usually go find comfort in video games, cartoons, and youtube tutorials. xD

  • Mei

  • melanie

    Kisses, Melanie

  • YomiLikesSweets

    AWHH I love this post ♥ It's sooo nice :D

    When I'm in a state of sadness I usually watch anime or read manga to pull myself into another world- or call up a friend to help me, distract me, and comfort me if it's really bad (: Showering always helps though XD

  • Jessica

    Being vain helps :P
    Well yeah at first youd want to cry it all out or something but then youll realize you dont wanna stay ugly or keep that puffy red eyes for good.. then Id start putting make up on and dress up xD

    Nice to read this blog entry, it'S also sad to think about the tsunami the last two days. We should know how lucky we are and thank for everything we have.

    You're such a nice person :) *hugs*

  • Gyaru Mika

    Very cute pics and you're so right with your posts!
    Nice to meet you by the way

  • brainloss

    Ahh, this is a nice post. I'm glad I found it today. ^^ When I am upset, I cry like a spastic. I don't talk, but if I am forced to, I talk like a spastic (bad version). Usually after I've calmed down, I go off and do my own stuff. If given the chance, I'l probably put on makeup. I find that strangely relaxing. I used to listen to music, but not so often now.

    In all honesty, the best way I calm myself down is to forget the problem – it's a defense mechanism, and a not so good one. I also like being around people… though I do get what you mean by feeling ugly if you called up a friend. ^^"

  • ☆ NachiPoo

    Great post! This is really helpful and I'm sure someone really needed this. I go through a lot of this..feeling ugly, lonely, and unchanged, but I push through.

    Haha, I noticed all the cute tofu's around your room XD very nice.
