    Try to change the previous poster's negative statement into something positive, even if it turns out completely absurd.

    It can be either real or imaginary. Follow the reply with a negative comment of your own.

    example: "My house burned down." reply: "On the bright side, you don't have to worry about paying the rent anymore."

    I'll begin with something real..

    My car's air conditioning system is broken. :(

    Well now at least you won't have the chance to accidently turn it on in the winter and get pneumonia.. or something.

    My skin is all blotchy and broken out. :/

    This is something almost all of us experience. To have imperfections is to be human, and there is a distinct beauty with flaws - they're genuine and honest, and those who can accept this in ourselves and others have proven they're above such trivialities. So our flaws test ourselves and others in this way.

    Also, it feels so great when a temporary outbreak clears up again. So there is always that day to look forward to.

    Okay this next one is not real, but I often imagine what it would be like.

    I'm deaf and can no longer hear all my favorite music. =(
