# How to # motivation

How do you cope when you are sad?

Hi all,
Sorry for the late post, I try to rest a bit on Thursdays and do other stuff. This tought came to me, and my hands were itching to type. I would love to hear from you.....


I was jejely browsing different blogs and sites, and there was one thing in common with some posts, a lot of anger, sadness, people fighting with friends openly on social media, calling names, family members fighting, broken marriages, people doing their best to bring others down etc. I know the world is filled with so much hate, some of us even fight our own private and personal battles.

Even though I believe that by being better and making the best of a situation, we must face the truth and tackle it (i no send you to go fight o, Lol) I would love to know how you handle negativity, a loss or a difficult life event? How do you move on? we Africans are not like the oyibos that will just go and kpai themselves. Even if we get that feeling of “let me just kill myself and have peace” once in a while, there must be a way that we get through. I would love to know, how do you do it? But first here’s mine:



  1. I cry (I am human too)
  2. I wipe my tears, I kneel and pray to God.
  3. I look for my family, my hubby, my kids, they always give me a reason to giggle and laugh, once I laugh, I'm fine, I sleep.
  4. When morning comes, I put on my running  shoes, plug in my earphones, put on some good music and run. I run my sorrows to the ground. After 30 mins, I feel good. Positive thoughts start coming.
  5. After breakfast, I feel bubbly again. Life is good. I count my blessings and thank the Lord.
So please gist me, and other readers, your story could change a life. How do you cope when you are sad? Thanks and God bless
Cheliz.

  1. For me, gone are the days I allow people to get at me, it haf tey :) However, there are days I just break down, and yes I force the tears to come out , releasing tears makes me feel better.. once those few drops of tears are out, I plug my ipod and blast my worship songs.. once I'm done, you nor go believe na the same Oluchi. Also, there are days that all I need to do is just count my blessing and eat a fantastic meal afterwards not minding how many calories dey inside.

  2. Oh well. Depends I can b very direct and confrontational, I don't like keeping grudges * e de give me sleepless night* I talk d talk n get relief. I am also very emotional n can cry you a river especially wen it has to do with my mum, siblings n close friends. I Also run to comfort foods 😟 SADLY. I just can't help it no matter how hard I try not to 😭. You can never go wrong with worship songs it does d magic. After feeling good with myself believing God has taken care of the situation, I begin t ask myself why I nibbled on unhealthy foods.

  3. For me, I hate confrontation cos I end up saying things I might regret later, withdraw into my shell, create a scenario in my mind, like a drama, insult or blast the person finish in my mind, might even slap the person then I walk away feeling very good, in my mind of cos. That calms me down in a funny way, as if I had the upper hand and the person that offended me just got squared. I am also very tolerant and overlook alot of things cos I believe we all have our personal issues and pple don't really wanna hurt anyone, its just a reaction to what they too are going thru .there are however some good friends that I can yell at and have the quarrel there and then and that's the end of the matter . I work in a customer care unit and there we meet all sort, that has helped me too. Personal issues like depression over life, weight, money and stuff, I pick a romance novel,movie , or a cartoon and travel to another world where its all rosy...kate
