Beyond that, how do you stay strong? Well, for most people it’s really just a matter of getting through it. Getting up every day, eating, showering, going to work/school/whatever and coming home, sleeping and doing it all over again. That doesn’t sound very helpful but that’s how it generally is; life keeps going on no matter what and you go along with it and eventually some time has passed and things change or you don’t feel as bad anymore. Some people find solace in religion or spirituality, some distract themselves with books and TV and friends, and some people can’t enjoy anything so they just feel terrible all the time.
