Re: How do you handle your emotional pain?

I distract myself (neptunian escapism to the rescue) until the pain is less raw. Then I try to rationally think through the situation. What was it that hurt me? Was it a specific situation that might be avoidable in the future? Did a person intend to hurt me, or could it be that I misinterpreted? When it comes to other people I try to interpret everything in the best possible light. It's not really in me to think that someone is out to hurt me, unless it is really blatantly done. And if there wasn't any intention to harm then I find that the hurt is much easier to let go of. Also helps that it's easy for me to forget things in general. That which I don't dwell on will start to fade pretty quick.
