If someone hurt you and you are feeling depressed what will you do? Sometimes we go through difficult situations which we cannot explain. I am going through this tough time now and don't know what to do? Someone has hurt me deeply and I am feeling completely depressed.....someone will please tell me how to overcome this sadness.

Well, I will cry, but... will have to move on and try to make myself busy at work and friends to forget everything... Life is too short, let's not be affected by our depression, be strong and pray always to God....

hi even me recently i was hurt by my friend. it was very difficult to handle as it was done by someone close to me.. if it was by another person it could have been solved easily. the thing i did was listening to music and reading novels.. i listen to some soft country music as it helps in calming us down almost whole day and when in evening i started reading some novel.. it helps.. try it..

When I feel hurt, I do tend to cry. Sometimes I cry my heart out to let out the hurt that I'm feeling. But I only cry when no one's watching. If I'm depressed about something or someone, I usually eat a lot to get my mind or myself away from thinking of my situation. Eating delicious foods helps me get over those kind of things in a day.. As well as meeting up with my friends who are willing to listen and be there for me. And of course, I would not forget to pray and ask for God's strength as I go through something hurtful. That's just it. Best of luck

I don't know what happened that hurt you but I will do my best to help.....I've been hurt before the only advice I can think to give is feel the emotions let the hurt out then think about the situation or what happened that hurt you....Think about your actions and think about the others actions and try to find the positive or the forgiveness.....

Write about your feelings. This is also known as venting. If you write about everything you feel it will be off your chest. Especially if you write what's on your mind , just how it is. And remember , whatever doesn't kill you , will only make you stronger.

you need to face it, it's you who have the answers and only you could bring back your happiness. coz' it's a choice you have to make. if it's about a person that makes you sad or that hurts you then you can try talking to whoever's involved and know the reason behind why you were hurt. when you already know the reason why you're hurt you should then accept the fact that you've been hurt and you wont allow it to happen again and then you'd choose between staying hurt and sad or looking at the brighter side and be happy. i'm sure this is not just what runs your life. there are other things to do and to be thankful for out there so try to focus on these things and choose to be happy coz' you know you deserve it. :)

I just keep quite, be separated from the crowd for a while, then I'll just pray and sob.After that I feel renewed, free from anger, and then back to the crowd and I look for someone who needs help or has a problem bigger than mine..

In the past, I only cry my lungs out by myself in my own room and just let it be and have a good sleep and think of tomorrow is a better day. Right now, most of the time when I feel sad, I try to find my family to talk to and tell out my problems that hurts me to lessen my own burden. This helps a lot and I can seek their advises if anything reaches me.

Well what i do in that case is maybe wrong, but i gather all my very close friends and go drinking. Its helping as long as you are drunk. But you will feel exactly the same on next morning even worst when you have hang over...But i think you should go to other town or for your friend for a while. I really think that its going to work better than drinking. :) Hope it all will turn up to good in the end velentina. :)

If someone hurts me I feel to cry. Until that pain leaves from my heart I do not talk to others because if anybody talked with me at that time may be I hurt them. I don't like to hurt others so I keep silence at that time.

I try not to let getting hurt by others drag me down. If i let bitterness and bad feelings find a place in my heart, the hurt becomes too intense to bear. you csn bring down others down along with you in your depressed state of mind. That is not a good feeling for anyone. i try to find a way to rise above the hurt and move forward with life.

I've been hurt countless times in my life by people I valued the most and loved.., But it's normal to feel hurt.., it's our emotional response.., what we need to do is not torment ourselves with what has been done and over with.. we can no longer turn back time and correct what went wrong.., To deal with hurt.., I'll try to understand the reason why they did that to me..=)

As one saying goes,to the world you maybe one person,but to one person,you maybe the world. Once I've faced the same situation as you. Life is not always about love. Care more about your family and transfer your attention to other meaningfui things. Good luck.

The following things may help you: 1. Stay away from that person 2. Go travel 3. Listen music 4. Find something to do 5. Try to do one/all of above things - Time will heal your hurt (sooner or later, it depends on you).

When I feel that hurt...I just went to my best friend or my parent and talk to them. I need suggestion from another that have capability for the situation. Besides, I can feel more better because I share my burden. But if I can contact or reach my closest friends, I try to find quite place and kneel down then pray to God, I'm a Seventh Day Adventist Church member... Because I believe that God is never far enough to hear my voice :)

Whenever I feel hurt, sometimes I just keep quiet and sometimes I cry.They said that crying out loud is one helpful way to let out of your feelings. Then think about what was bothering me. Then after that I talked to the one who've hurt meand opened up

Whenever I'm feeling hurt or depressed, I write about my feelings in my journal, and compose some poetry.

Taking a shower and curling on my bed, it is my best way to escape from a tough circumstance, But it can not solve anything actually. If possible, I recommend you go talk to at least one of your friends who used to involve in the situation or are suffering from the same problem. Both of you may figure out some positive solution, but not depression and waiting the coming of the catastrophe.

first thing that i would do is to pray and cry (literally) it all out to GOD! :) i pray and pray until i would feel okay and believing that the GREAT HEALER and COMFORTER is embracing me.. then i get a good sleep.. getting a good sleep from crying all night makes me tired. if i still feel gloomy then i pray again and let it out!! :) i believe all these hurtful things happen for a good reason...trusting God is the key.. :)

I try to be fair and look at it from their point of view as well. I might want to see what could have motivated them to hurt me, but if I can't find I good reason, I try to isolate myself from people if I know I'll be unfriendly or they won't be a big help. Then, I'll escape using one of my favorite mediums, music. Or I have a private blog, so I will write in there until I feel better, or at least good enough to do something actively fun. You shouldn't let it overcome you...and I am not trying to be insensitive to people who suffer from true depression, seeing as I am one of them myself. Once you focus on something besides the feeling for long enough, you can approach it with less bitterness and hurt when you do inevitably think about it again, and you can try to get past it then. I hope I helped-- sorry to see you so down, and I hope you can get this resolved...
