Do you prefer to be alone if you're depressed?

Yes I do prefer to be alone so I can complain and cry about whatever is depressing me at the time. Helps me to work it out in my mind. although if there's someone close to you who can see past that and MAKE you get out and do something with them, that's probably the best thing to take one's mind off their depression. have a nice day to all!

When i feel depressed i prefer to stay by myself. Usually I will keep quiet or just play games on internet. I use the time to think what should i do? Why I feel so sad? and i also try to persuade myself to be happy and positive. In general i don't think i need friends or relative to talk with me, because i clearly know what's my problem and what's the solution. I just need time to adjust myself. Later when i go out from the depression maybe i will talk with my friends about it. but it's already over. I just need their opinion to support me. happy Mylotting.

I like to be alone all the time . Just me, my phone and music. I love to be alone even if I am not depressed. This is because I think when I am alone. My mind is absolutely neutral at that time. No confusions, no tensions , no problems are there when I am alone.

I do like to be myself sometimes when I am depressed but most of the time, I need someone there with me, by my side, to cheer me up. I have a best friend named Taylor and she is always there for me when I am depressed. I don't mind if I need to cry around others, I just want to talk to someone and get out my emotions. Thats all I have to say, Thanks and Happy myLotting!

I like to be alone, when I am depressed. I either hear some music which I love or read something. If both the things does not help me, I either watch a movie on the T.V. or just watch some other programme. If nothing helps, I take a sleeping tablet and sleep it off. The the next day, I am a new person.
