Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thanks for bringing your question to JustAnswer.
To get through the weekend, rather than focus on your feelings, put your energy into planning activities that will add some fun and relaxation to your life. Sometimes, you have to "fake it till you make it." Act as if things are fine and you are feeling good about yourself. Put a smile on your face even if you don't actually feel happy. There is research that shows that just changing your facial expression can in turn change your emotions.
If you focus just on how you are feeling inside, you will miss this great opportunity to relax and enjoy each other's company. Save the worry and trying to figure things out for another time--preferably in therapy. Cut yourself some slack--you deserve to have some fun!
Make a list of 5 things you are grateful for each and every morning. You will be amazed at how that can help give you an appreciation for what is good in your life. Do this especially while you are away for the weekend. It will keep you focused on the positive rather than the negative.
Have a great time!
