It’s easier for you to see problems before possibilities and this can hold you back. Don’t force yourself to be happy, but instead use distractions to stop yourself from fixating on negative or worrying thoughts. You could work out, listen to a song or talk to a friend. Challenge your assumptions about how bad a situation could be by taking a step back and seeing it from alternative perspectives. Exaggerate the outcome in your mind until it becomes something to laugh about!
