    2. Blame everyone else for your unhappiness
    3. Use "if only" for time, money and frineds
    4. Compare what you have with what others have
    5. Always be serious
    6. Take responsibility for everything all the time
    7. Try to please everybody all the time: in other words, never say "no"
    8. Help others, but never let anyone help you
    9. Consider your feelings & desires unimportant
    10. If anyone compliments you, discount it

  2. This is so true! Thanks for posting, Azz.

    People on a downer often find it difficult to 'pep talk' themselves out of it and need to see something in black and white to follow, a bit like an instruction manual. So these sorts of lists can be really helpful.

    That's what I reckon, anyway :grin:
