I need your best distraction techniques for negative thoughts. Graduation is just over a month away and I'm dreading it. I just want to back out and not go. :(
I don't know how best to deal with it really. I can already feel it hanging over me like a black shadow that's seeping at my happiness. Do I block it out and pretend it's not going to happen until the actual day? Or do I try and deal with it?
I need techniques for the actual day too. I know that right before the ceremony and the first part of it will be the worst. Horrible thoughts. Wanting to just run away and bail. Pounding heart.
I read one comment on someone's blog that said to remember the situation is only temporary, it won't last forever. I think that might help slightly if I can keep telling myself it will be over soon.
What else can I do to keep myself calm and fight off those bad thoughts?
