Bad days are the worst! Sometimes its just the smallest thing that can bring a bad day on. Maybe you showed up late for work and got in trouble by your boss. Perhaps, you forgot your homework. No matter what the situation is, sometimes bad days just happen. Here are a few ways you can combat the bad day blues.
- Realize bad days happen for everyone. Bad days happen for every person. So don’t beat yourself up if you have a bad day. Realize that tomorrow will be a new day and you can get new perspective on the situation.
- Realize that you are not facing these things alone. It can be easy to feel like you’re all alone or that no one really cares about you and your situation. The truth is God is always there for you to lean on and talk to. He gets it and understands what you’re going through.
- Think on what is true. It can be really easy to focus on the bad, and the negative about your bad day. Realize though that this might not be 100% reality. The situation might seem worse to you than it really is. Don’t feel too bad about it, but rather choose to think on good things.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” – Philippians 4:8
Bad days happen to everyone. Its important when bad days come to take time to focus on getting God’s perspective and God’s help on the situation. Many times, a situation seems worse than it actually is. By keeping God in the mix, it helps you not focus on the wrong things and draw on God’s strength and ability when facing a bad day!
