I would like to hear some examples on how different types deal with things that devastate them emotionally
I am currently in a situation I would rather not be in and frankly cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel yet. Usually I am VERY good at this.. but I think since I am aging I think I have less and less optimism.. I do seem to be good at seeing it for others.. a recent example: telling an ISTj that it's not a failure that counts but how you react to it; seemed to help her. Now, I think this could work for myself but I think it has to have some kind of rational basis.. I also think I have trouble having confidence unless I have some kind of path to follow.
How do you a) handle yourself in tough times and b) how do you get through it?
