If I'm depressed, I would like to be left alone to sort out my feelings. I am not the type who likes to pour everything out to a friend. I need the time alone to do some soul searching and analyzing. I will soon get over it and then back to my usual self.

I like to be alone when I'm depressed...but will find some time to overcome that situation because after all change is the only permanent thing in this world.so give some time to make a changes to happen.

Hi replyashu! (cool name huh!) For me it can be both. Every individual have different attitude or character. Each one deals differently from one another. Some people would prefer to be alone. As for me, i will choose to be with friends right after i talk to God. Being depress only means you don't have the right connection. Having a good communication with the Pilot of your life means a lot. Less worries and almost no depression cases at all.Almost!

I think you have to be alone first until you cry or release it. You can talk to a friend later.

I agree. If a friend was there comforting me, things'd become worse. I'd cry louder than when I'm alone. And the more my friend comforts me, the more I tend do cry. Comforting just doesn't help, at least for me. I'd better be left alone and talk to my friends after I calm down.

I prefer to be alone when I am depressed, unless my wife is around at the time. I don't want to be with anyone but here when I am down about something. However, she is not here a lot of times when I start feeling bad, so I usually end up spending that time alone...

for me it's better to have friends and loved ones around when you're feeling down.. surround yourself with positive people

When you get depressed it is better to be with friends.When you are with friends you get diverted or you get a little bit of relief. You have to share your feeling with your friends when you get depressed. So always I go to my friends when I get depressed. If you are alone then you get more depressed. If you want to be alone or don't have any friend then try to listen to some music or read a book.

I would need to be alone for a while so I can compose myself and try to sort out my feelings. Then when I am ready, I need my friends there. Just their presence is enough to make me feel better.

Actually, it's up to what you prefer to do because people differ in ways of expressing their emotions. What I always do is share it to my most-trusted friend.

There are times when i want to be left alone so i can analyze things .Sometimes i would talk to a trusted friend and just pour out my pain and ask some advice. But i know very well that it is only me who can solve my problem.I may be getting a lot of advices but unless i weight which is advisable, my problem will remain unsolved. Being left alone also, helps me weigh things and i can think of a better way to solve my dilemma. (^_^)

most people prefer to be alone... while some prefer to have a friend beside them so they could share the burden. whatever is our choice in dealing with our depression, i think it all depends on the person. no matter how comforting our friends would say to us, and no matter how we try to forget if we keep on going back to the thought, to the negativity sometimes we just might give up entirely. for me, i prefer to be alone. this is where i find peace and time to reflect on my emotions, to reflect on the things i did in my life and by being alone i rely on no one's comforting words and so i do become stronger when i deal with the things myself. Suggestions are welcome, comments are ok, but i still prefer that no one tries to make me feel better because it is going to be better when i already come out of the situation.

When I am depressed, I pray to God. God is our best friend. After that I told my problems to my best friends to get ideas to solve the problems. That works. When I was a young lady I needed friends to comfort myself. Now I train myself not to seek friends but, God to comfort myself.

As human needs, I would like to have friends with me in times of depression, but sometimes I prefer to be alone also, to give time with myself, depending on the cause of depression, case to case basis. Sometimes, having someone around adds on depression especially when their opinions or advices are not corresponding to what you feel..and some friend are too strong or forceful, that are not helping at all. but there are friends who are good in handling friends who are depressed, just stay there to share her/his presence and to know that he/she cares, and comfort you as solicited.

i would rather be with a friend in times of depression as it somehow divert negative thoughts when there is good company. As much as i want to talk thing about things that is making me depress, a simple smile, a pat on the back or just being simply with one is a real relief.

Id rather be with a friend when im depressed makes me feel lighter in some ways. Im not a loner i need friends to survive if i dont thats the time where in danger of losing myself to depression. I battle loneliness with friends more than just being alone. I just wish i wont be depressed most of the time, because its pretty hard to cope sometimes
