I'll disagree that things aren't ever as bad as they seem. Sometimes literally everything sucks, and there's nothing you can really do about that. And trying to talk yourself into thinking they're not bad is just going to be frustrating. But, good things (or at least not miserable things) are always just around the corner.

As the author of the post she was referencing, I feel the need to point out that you kind of missed the point. There's a difference between "things" as in "the thing that is happening right now" and "things" as in "my life as a whole." It's possible to be experiencing something extremely sh!tty but still try to step back and look at the big picture.

As you say, good things could be right around the corner. Bad days/weeks/months aren't the end of the world. Sometimes it definitely does help to try to maintain a bit of perspective. It isn't "trying to talk yourself into thinking they're not bad," it's trying to remind yourself that bad things aren't the only things that happen, difficult as that might be to do when bad things are happening at the moment.

Waygook.org user Mister Tim - I'm not sure which post you think I was referencing of yours. I was just responding to waygook.org user Bingsu's post. I wasn't responding to any post of yours. Sorry for the confusion.

...right?

I was the someone in the moments thread she was referencing. I was clarifying the point she was talking about and that you disagreed with.

Nobody told me that all my 1st grade classes today would be cancelled. This is the GOOD kind of Korean Surprise to end the week  ;D

I've never understood why people get upset when classes are cancelled. And people say I moan.

a picture of food
feeds the whole hungry clan
the image of good
makes the whole healthy man

why walk the mile?
why do the work?
just smile the smile!
after all, success is a quirk!

life isn't real
that's the message I give
it's easy that way
plus
who wants to live?
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky
With one hand waving free

Happy Friday.

YES THANK GAWD

Same to you. This has been a long week, and it's time for me to go wilderness junkie and just disappear for the weekend.

Is the wilderness a metaphor for your room?

Or are you going feral?

I am going ****** savage. I'll be chewing twigs and spitting acorns at squirrels to eat for dinner.

My bedroom is nice, too, but I need to get out. I'm basically a ghost at this point.

You too? I'm going to Daegu by myself. Gonna relax.

Yes, except I'm gonna do more of a Lewis & Clark thing instead of a George of the Jungle goes to San Francisco thing.

I might even grow a beard.

I had a relatively good week, until today. Today was a dumpster fire of a day with Murphy's Law written all over it. I think I'm going to sit at home all weekend grumbling about how I wish I could still drink my problems away.

Was in Myeongdong at the weekend with my wife, doing a bit of shopping and then trying a bite to eat.  Being a vegetarian is a trial as it is in Korea, so we popped into a 'Pho Bay' restaurant that had some 'for vegetarians' noodles advertised on the poster outside.  Bit strange.  Went in and my wife asked about those noodles 'Oh no, it's with pork and beef broth'.   :evil: Go fook yourself.  Don't actually advertise something like that for some unsuspecting vegetarian to come in and eat it.  Juanker!  Best thing was the 'Red Hong' 'toppoki'  :laugh: restaurant next to it that actually only used vegetable broth for all their dishes.  The only thing that made the dish non-vegetarian was the additions.  That was the first time me and the wife could actually eat 'toppoki'  :laugh: together.
