My glass is always half empty .....

I'm not depressed, but I can get stressed and easily irritated. My mood can be down at times, but I know I'm not suffering from depression. I hate being a negative person, but is it possible to change your personality ?? Anyone else like me ?

I make a big effort to act more positive at work, but one colleague has sussed me out. Yesterday at tea-break she mentioned a well-being retreat she is going on where they teach you how to think more positively! I finished my tea and made my excuses.

I see a couple of others looking at me for a second longer than they should sad

Everyone else thinks I normal enough (at least I think they do). I remind myself to smile when saying hello, I talk to people even when I don't feel like it and I really make an effort not to be down-in-the-mouth.

I don't really know whats wrong with me tbh. I know its part and parcel of my personality, and I can live with it, but I'm not happy with others noticing it and "trying to save me"

Anyone any advice ....?

I just work on it like you do a job. I can't give advice but I'm terrible at organizing and getting in touch with friends then come a free weekend with out the boys and I haven't fixed anything and because I didn't call them in good time people have other things to do.
I'm going to start a new leaf in Sept. Want to join me. I'm going to exercise more too it should lift my mood.
