First thing, you accept yourself for what you are. Radical acceptance is the term for want of one; so it is not giving up, but continuing to try. One of the breathing meditations to use is to simply focus on the outbreath. Sometimes the more we try to straighten things out, the more tangled up they get, but if we bear with things and with ourselves, we may notice that things tend to straighten themselves out.

In gassho,

Mark

Train harder would be my suggestion. :D
Works for me.

I keep putting one foot in front of the other and doing what needs to be done to support my life, even if it doesn't make any sense at tthe time, on the assumption that one day my depression will lift, and when that happens I will want my job, home, friends, etc.
This is different from existential angst, which requires that I actually consider the need to change my life conditions and then do so.

Life isn't fair. Pain is just as natural as bliss. You must accept pain and grieve when necessary. It is perfectly natural and healthy to have negative feelings. Express them in a safe environment, and forgive yourself and others for any transgressions that may have occured to cause the grief. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason for problems in life, but that's life, as they say. Remember that as alone as you may feel, we all suffer together. Find someone you can open up to and share your grief. Love yourself and move on.
peace,
jk

Why are you so sad? Is it related to your dojo? Perhaps without saying too much you could say a little about your situation.

For me, as long as it's not excessive or destructive, I try to accept that having ups also sometimes means having downs.

Sounds silly and simplistic, but whenever I'm depressed, repeating this to myself helps me to get through the bad times without fracturing my self esteem.
