Then I tried something new. I challenged myself to come up with 5 positive things about my current situation. I looked around the bar and noticed the great decorations, the good beer on tap, the cute girls, all the people laughing and singing (it was a karaoke bar), all of my good friends hanging out together.

I immediately felt better. And I now had 5 positive things to talk about.
Thats really awesome. ^^ I need to try that as well. Im going to write everything that applies to me down .
