Excellent responses from Lisa and Maria. Its actually somewhat abnormal NOT to "feel down" now andf then --- one's mood shifts and there are better and worse days, and many ways to civert oneself and cheer oneself up. Research tends to confirm what I have always recommended anyway, that one is more likely to cheer oneself up and end feeling better by trying to help someone else and cheer them up, than by entirely focussing on oneself. Supposing, of course, that the other person would actually welcome such attention !
If your mood is unreasonably down and miserable for an extended period of days, and there is a real possibility that a Depression may be arising, its wise to see one's GP for a checkup on other relevant symptoms, to consider this possibility, as it may deserve some more complex assistance, perhaps with meds or CBT style counselling that helps you learn how to handle these moods and feelings.
