How do people overcome

Discussion in 'Personal' started by pinkflipflop, Jan 9, 2011.

  1. I always find that work is the best distraction for things upsetting me in my personal life. When they are bothering me too much to concentrate I go for a walk and then get back to work.
    If problems in your relationship are starting to badly affect your personal/professional life then they need to be addressed.

    Find the space and the peace to write it all down. Read it to yourself. Allow yourself to think about it carefully. Then put it away safe and put your thoughts away too. Concentrate at work on work and nothing else, don't even think about what you might have for dinner when you get home.
    It's hard but doable, sometimes you have to compartmentalise your life to get through it.
    Take care

    I agree wholeheartedly. I doesn't suit everyone's personality though, and it's not always possible in some circumstances. Then again, as a teacher the concept of having a public face and a private face shouldn't be completely foreign to you.

    If you are aware that certain situations trigger an emotional response because of what is happening at home then try your best to avoid or do something that distracts you in some way.

    Yep, I'd agree with that. Works for me.
    My mind is full of little boxes. I deal with the box that is opened and once that's done I close the box and stick it back in its and open another one.
    Some of the boxes are on very high shelves... [​IMG]

    Damn this stupid wireless keyboard!
  8. That is what I do.
    And I often find work a blessing and my saviour when private life is tough.

    And so do I.
  10. I have major problems with procrastination, so when things go bad in my personal life it makes that worse. I wish I could be someone that 'just got on with it' but it seems near impossible :(
