What makes you go on when you feel sad?

November 3, 2009 11:42am CST
Well friends, what makes you keep on when you feel like nobody wants you and carres about you? I think everybody have had at least one moment like this in his life. Is there a person or a thing that makes you happy again. For me that thing is the music. And what about you?

I need to be busy to keep my mind occupied, if I am not busy then my mind will start analyzing everything and I get really depressed, I am a depressive person and find I can easily slip into depression. I find if I feel sad I will go to the gym and work out for a couple of hours, it works wonders, as exercising helps release happy chemicals in the brain, so I feel much better afterwards, I also have my Ipod on when I am working out so that helps me even more. I agree music is wonderful for relieving the blues.

I haven't think about that. Doing something to lower the stress and sadness, that's also a good solution of the problem!

There are many times when I am really sad and sometimes I do not know why but I just get sad,and when I am sad there are a few things that make me go on,one is my wife because I love her,and she knows how to make me smile,make me laugh,and she will love me no matter what,another thing that makes me go on is video games because they always make me feel better and I like getting new video games,because they come out with awesome video games and I like the achievements on the X-box 360.

As I see, the family is one of the things that can make a person go on when he's sad. The video games are maybe something like the music for those who love music-like me. Thanks for the answer, hellcowboy!

I think everyone loves family,and I would definitely say that video games are like music and are very inspirational to some people,you are very welcome for the response I enjoy responding to peoples discussions because I can share my opinion and I can also learn new things from different people.

i feel like that now especially now in the holiday season. i give my feelings to the Lord in prayer. i share it with someone close but not always. i will keep my hurt and lonely feelings to myself. I am like you with music, it allows me to express my feelings in song.

Hi! Well, then we are the same I keep my feelings to myself, too. Because i don't want the others to know about them, and I also have the feeling that no body will understand me!

Just yesterday I felt really sad for sometime as if nobody loves me and wants me and cares about me. I had a bad telephone conversation at night and thereafter had a disagreement with my mother. She went off to sleep without saying goodnight and I felt very lonely and lost as if no one loved me at all. I slept late at night and woke up early and finally felt good after talking to my mother and making up with her. I also disscussed my telephone conversation with her and we arrived at one opinion that I should avoid talking to this person. Now I am feeling ok.

Yeah, I have felt that way many times, and I know making up with the ones you loved is also a solution, but I listen to music in the most cases. It helps mostly!

My husband and I have many pets and when I am sad I like to spend some time with my pets for instanse my rabbits. I love playing with them and taking care of them, and they always make me smile when I am sad. Music is another thing that often helps me get happy again. I love music and it usually makes me happy to listen to some of my favourite songs. It also makes me happy to discover new bands or singers. I have a notebook with some of my favourite stories, quotes and poems, and when I am sad, it often helps me to read that book.

Yeah, music and pets are both things that make me happy, too! I think the animals know when we are unhappy and come to us and help us feel better!

Hi there! For me, the thing that makes me go on when i am sad is my kid. I can't be sad for long because i don't want my kid to see me sad. I really pick myself up and be happy. Because I don't want to get depressed again. It is really hard to get out of depression so might as well prevent it as early as possible.

Yeah, children are good friend to any parent and you really can be sad when your child is near you.
