Even pears get depressed. I know I certainly do, and it can be very hard to hoist myself out of a bad mood. Sometimes I don’t even know why I’m feeling down, but knowing why doesn’t always help either. Every year, for instance, I notice my mood goes a bit sour when the seasons change, yet I can’t seem to stop myself from feeling that way. I’ve found that the best was for me to get over feeling down is to force myself to do something I usually enjoy– seeing friends, knitting, taking a walk (although that’s harder with all this snow in Montreal!). It can be really difficult, but it often helps.
