When I feel that there are so many troubles I cannot stand, I try to find my comfort in the world of music. It seems that singing releases my inner strength. I like to travel to the country, to be near the water, to go swimming, to do some work in the garden, to ride my bicycle.

talk with friends that can cheer me up^^ what we must never do is be alone thinking in things :( that make us even more depressed. at least me i feel that way. if i talk with a friend that really cares for me or with someone that loves you for sure you will feel better bcs you will feel loved and care and the sadness slowly will go away^^ anytime you are sad do this and you will see^^

When I was single, I used to get the encouragement only from myself. No bragging but for some reason, I had this ability to make myself feel better without getting much advices from anyone. Of course I also have friends whom I talk to when I'm down but it's just a way of unwinding. Now that I'm in a relationship, I usually confide with my boyfriend. He really has this way of making me feel comfortable and at ease and he's good and cheering me up.

I would tell myself, we can't please everybody. To shake the bleues? I'g go to the mall and have some window shopping.. or hit the gym..

I mostly get encouragement from my friends and family. I don't get encouragement from people I don't know.
