Top 3: Things I Do When I’m Feeling Down

1. Smoke a Blunt

I need to be honest, right?! And there’s nothing in the world that makes me feel more calm or heightens my mood the way smoking a blunt of Indica flower does. I’ve been using marijuana as medicine since I was 14 years old.

2. Read a Book

When I read I can escape my own reality. I can’t have other thoughts in my head while I read because my mind is invested in the story I’m reading and bad thoughts can’t find their way in.

3. Listen to Music and Sing Along at the Top of my Lungs!

How can singing at the top of your lungs not make you feel better? I’ll sing for hours and it never fails to put me in a better mood.

  1. Although if you were my sister because I think I’m about ten years older than you or more, I won’t encourage you to smoke. But if it helps you and makes you feel better and as long as it doesn’t cause harm to you, then maybe there’s nothing to worry about. You’re so honest and real, that’s what I like about you the most. You are a wonderful soul. πŸ™‚

    1. Aww thank you, Jimi! My dad knows that weed helps me a lot and he encourages me to quit but whenever I’m in a bad mood towards him he asks why I haven’t smoked yet, lol. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Thank you!! You are the wonderful soul. πŸ’—

    1. Ugh it’s hella expensive here, too!! But I have too much anxiety, no appetite, and insomnia without it. πŸ™ˆ I’ve been thinking about getting a medical card but I’m too anxious to bring myself to the marijuana doctor. It would make it considerably cheaper though. 😩

      Reading is so relaxing, isn’t it? I like sleeping too but then when I wake up from my 4 hour nap, I get so stressed out because I should’ve been doing something else. πŸ˜›

  2. Interesting. For distraction – particularly if I can’t stop thinking about something that’s bugging me I’ll go for video games. Usually that time away from focusing on what’s bothering me stops the loop long enough for me to move on.

    At the same time, my usual approach is like it would be with anything else in my life that’s not working: open in up and see if I can fix it. I’m never content to rest in a situation where something isn’t working so I try to figure out what the problem is and make a change. I’m lucky in that most of the time that works. But then I’m willing to go to great lengths to fix something that’s not working for me – heck even as far as immigrating to a whole new country :-). The great advantage of diving in and seeing if I can make a change to fix it is that then I avoid the impulse to distract myself. And so, instead of zoning out in front of a video game for hours, I can go out in the world and have more adventures. πŸ™‚

    1. I do enjoy playing video games, app games, and the Sims on the computer when my mind is bothering me, too. πŸ˜› That could make my Top 5!

      I wish I could open up and fix every problem right away but I need time to sulk and feel sorry for myself first then I can fix it, haha. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜›

    1. I like comedy sitcoms too! Especially Everybody Loves Raymond, if I’m feeling down! I don’t have friends to hang out with really but hanging out w/ my boyfriend helps, too. 😊 and I love your 3rd one! I’m not really a poet but it’s sweet you keep your readers in mind!

      1. When I was teaching a verbal English class in China, I had my students write and perform their own skits. One of the groups tried performing an episode of “Everybody Loves Raymond” and hoped I wouldn’t notice; the irony is I have only seen two episodes and they happened to pick one of them.

          1. He was a serial cheater. I caught him plagiarizing in the public speaking class, too. It was bugging me because while listening to his speech I could have sworn I’d heard it before, but it wasn’t until he made the same English mistake that I remembered where I’d heard the speech before.

  3. I love your openness. Listening to music is also one of the things I do when I’m down. I use to listen to music that matches the mood but happier uplifting songs are much better✨

    1. Ahh, thank you! I just wanna be honest so there are no barriers when I write!

      I like any song that I can sing super loud, lol. Something like Christina Aguilera, you know? 😬

  4. I’ve never smoked on my own, but I feel if I was able to and really stressed out, it would help. It does take the edge off!

    Reading is always a good method to escape from your own current reality and focus on the life of someone else.

    And music is definitely the best method! I don’t scream at the top of my lungs though lol. But I do put my music on loud and stick headphones in to block out everything else!

    1. It def takes the edge off. πŸ˜› I believe it will be legalized everywhere soon!

      Lol! Screaming at the top of my lungs while singing is better than in anger. It feels like I’m letting everything out so I need to sing haha πŸ˜†

      1. There’s talks of it! It’s only a matter of time haha.

        And I could only do that if I had the house to myself (which is rare) so I wouldn’t let myself do that πŸ˜‚ but I will sometimes sing if I’m by myself because it’s the only time I feel comfortable doing it. And it does help me feel better πŸ˜‚
