I find what's good in my life now and think about that. Bad things certainly happen and bring me down, but I try to put it all in perspective and not focus on the negativity. I also try to stay hopeful. If things aren't good now, I look to the future and how I can make things change. Sometimes it takes a while, and it can be frustrating, but hang in there. Look to what brings you joy in life--be it family or friends, a pet, book or TV characters, or even an internet meme. Good luck!
