    I think of the people who have it worse than me that still continue on.

    haven't felt that way in awhile, but usually i thought of the people who cared about me, and what i could do well, and tried to up my feelings of self-worth.

    or i listened to music that i felt empathized with my current state of mind - which seemed to release those feelings for me (i'm sure it doesn't work that way for all).

    As Japan Four said, I think about people who have much worse lives than me. People with mental retardation or who are paralyzed is always reason enough for me to realize how stupid most of my worries are.

    I think of ways to get out of that state of mind and how to improve my situation. I also talk to people because it seems to make me feel a little better. Then I find something to distract me and take my mind off things.
