I like to think of myself as an optimistic person. When things don't seem to be going good I'm usually able to find even the littlest bit of hope or I look at the situation in a light situation. This is my coping strategy.
This may sound like a good think? Or not? depending on your look in life. My problem with this is when people that have SERIOUS things happening in their life, and all I do is make jokes or try to make it sound like it isn't that big of a deal they don't appreciate it. I recognize my fault, but now for the next step of changing my strategy when dealing with others.
