Did your fall semester in middle school, college or graduate school end on a low note? The spring semester that starts in a few days is a new beginning for you. Was last year a tough one at work? Did you lose a job? Did you have to move your family from a place everybody really liked to a new location? One way to cope is to think of what you can gain rather than what you’ve lost. Focus on what to learn from the experience in order to help you move forward. Make some new friends.
