As an additional thought, posted a few hours after I first put this up, I like this: Reader “Teresa” has commented that when she’s sad she goes on Youtube and looks up laughing babies. I read this and loved how particular and sweet this was. It really is funny what we find around us that “gets us through the night”.
In my twenties, when I got sad, I’d go climb a tree. It worked for me. What’s worked for you?
