The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.

– Mark Twain

Often, when a low mood is coming on, sometimes it is because the mind has started to brood upon itself. The things that formerly seemed exciting now elicit no response. In a sense, we have closed down. A friend can talk to us and we will not hear; we can go to a movie and may… Continue
