I am not a spiritual teacher, and there are many things that I do not know. I just felt the urge to open up a thread where we can exchange spiritual practice (and sometimes mere psychological tricks) and whatever that could help with feeling better. It will take awhile to re-collect everything I tried which has helped in the past or is helping me now, but hopefully I am not alone here and others will contribute, maybe others who know more than I do. I noticed that I am more prone to fall into a hole when I stop things like meditation, affirmation, focusing on different senses, questioning... When you are in that deep black hole, meditation won't work anymore, of course. Nothing that others do or say really helps, and often exactly when you are down already, people are saying things that are everything but helpful (like "pull yourself together" or "at least make sure that the kids do not see it" or any other criticism which only makes you feel worse). I will list a few things in another post. Will need to go off soon.
