"Yes, it's essentially mind over matter. But there is a deeper issue here. It would be exhausting to be in a constant state of any single emotion."

"Way to get rid of it - Find a job you like better than or equal to your weekends OR set up some small reward for the day of the week you like the least.  Monday will be the one workday you pack cookies in your lunch, or whatever."

"Ideally not. Best I can tell, your complaint is that men -- particularly Asian or Korean men -- aren't into dark-skinned women. You say your parents immigrated to the U.S., so it doesn't sound like you live in Asia. You call yourself a…"
