…of hurt, sadness, nervousness, anxiousness (which stems from fear) etc. 

Whatever the case may be, understanding why you feel the way you do, and knowing that it’s normal and okay to feel this way, is one way to cope.

Never sulk (at least for long periods of time).  Figure out what’s making you feel this way, address it, and move on.
