The feeling may ache, but know that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Here are 5 things to remember when you feel down in the dumps:
Don’t take things personally: Rejection often puts us in a bad mood. Be proud of your accomplishments and keep in mind that you will never be able to please everyone (and you shouldn’t try to).
Distractions can help: Even if it’s a mundane chore, doing something else will take your mind off of your sadness.
Failure is inevitable: Hold yourself accountable for your mistakes and learn each time you make one.
You’re not alone: Knowing that there are others in the same boat can ease the pain. Not everyone has a great day every day.
You’re not Superwoman: If your schedule looks swamped, remember that you can’t accomplish everything at once. Complete one task at a time.
