I tend to feel sorry for myself a lot. Is there anyway out of this?
Come on! I can bet that most of the people on the planet have more problems and less money than you. They know from research that being unhappy about your life or liking it doesn't have much to do with the real problem you have have. Some really poor folks are perfectly content and like their lives. Some rich ones are the reverse. My advice is that when you start feeling sorry for yourself think of a friend who is in worse shape and give them a call. Take them out to lunch. Cheer them up. It will cheer you up!
