    I cry till it passes. Then carry on.

    It's ok to have weak moments; acknowledge them. Feel them and move past them till the next one.

    Feel free to PM me if you ever need to talk.
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    I let myself be weak. Because if my heart I know I am strong enough to get through any storm. I'm also not afraid to ask for help form someone, or a lot of people. Not anymore, sometimes we need that hand to get up again. I'll let myself cry or watch a horrid movie on netflix curled in my pjs on my couch and then i pick myself up take a deep breath and keep on going.

    I feel like marathoning Grey's Anatomy or something and feeling sorry for myself long enough for my self-defense mechanism to kick in and pursue happiness again.

    For weak moments, I tell myself to shut up and get over it. It (whatever situation 'it' is) could always be worse. A thousand times worse. In a number of different ways. So shut up Vino and pull yourself together.

    Thats how I work best. Wallowing tends to make me more sad and pathetic and lethargic and blah.

    For my super weak moments I cry a lot for a night and have oral sex with my two favorite men- Ben and Jerry. Wake up the next morning and tell myself to shut up and get over it.

    I am harsh with myself- may not work for you (in fact that method doesnt work for most), but it works for me.

    Nahh, you're right. It could be worse. But you never really experience that perspective unless, well, you experience it. I know deep down that DB would take away the pain if he could but my brain is getting the best of me. Paranoia and Insecurities abound

    exactly. sometimes i call my navy mom. she is a pro. i journal and i have a therapist. but seriously, dont fight the emotion, it only makes it stronger. just ride it out and now that tomorrow is a new day. it will pass.

    I write out all of my feelings in a journal just to get them all out. I let myself cry for a little bit and go hunting for some chocolate or candy. Unhealthy, yet effective. After that, I'm normally okay. I take a deep breath, give myself a mental pep talk, and continue on like normal.

    I find the saddest songs I own, play them until I get a good, solid cry, pour myself a glass of wine and then tell myself to let it go. Things could always be worse.

    I set a timer "OK Lizzy, you get 30 minutes of pity-party then you have to be a productive person again!" It works pretty well for me, and sometimes all I need is 10-15 minutes of letting myself feel sad and lonely, and then I can pull myself together again.
