Well, you can not do this, and life continues at a marching pace. The only solace that you have is the fact that whatever it is that is bothering you did not kill you. You did not die from a broken heart; your financial problems and woes are now taking the forefront and you are dealing with them instead of ignoring you current situation and life will continue on.
Somewhere, sometime, someone stated that life is not a race it is a journey. It is our way of inhaling all the the wonders that surround us, and make a promise to ourselves not to forget that life is good.
Setting goals, even the smallest ones will allow you to feel a sense of accomplishment. If you are not good at setting goals, make the first ones very small. Something like: Once I clean the kitchen I will sit down and relax, perhaps watch a movie I haven't seen in a while.
Keep your own pace. Don't try to keep up with someone else. There is always someone more skilled, and you will place yourself in a position of self doubt...let's try to avoid that!
Follow Your Happy!
Happy Does It!
