When I feel sad and alone, I would open my laptop and start blogging. I pour all my emotions out into writing. IT hurts at first, but after that the pain lessens. You should find an outlet that works best with you. Everyone of us has a different way of coping with situations. Sometimes when I don't feel like writing, I would have a really nice exercise, that way I am able to shift my mind on wellness other than hiding out in my numbshell. Sometimes I would go for a nature walk that way I am able to reflect and look beyond the things that makes me feel unhappy...after that - PEACE of mind. Life is a cycle, when you became sad, it's a preparation to being HAPPY... :)

I do either of the following: I listen to music in an unusually loud volume (but not so loud to disturb my neighbors). I read a book, so that the sad thought slips away from my mind. I watch my favorite comedy tv series. I repeat my favorite episodes. I go out and have a walk in the mall and eat in my favorite fast food. At times, I hang out with my friends because they are so funny that laughing with them becomes a therapy.

Well as much as possible I try to find ways to entertain myself. Either watch tv or play computer games or sleep. Yes sleeping is entertaining for me so please don't argue. hehe. :D But most of the time I watch funny movies because only then that I'll find myself laughing again and realize that I have forgotten my sadness.

well,whenever I am sad , I never tell anyone. And even I, Myself try to overcome from my sadness as soon as possible. and never let myself be that weak that I start crying infront of any person not even infront of my friends and relatives also. I think whatever the situation is,You should face it and not to be sad and depressed , instead of it atleast try to overcome from that. Your try will definitely help you to be strong in every situation. And I think it depends on how you want, you want that that situation and matter breaks you or you want to that situation not to affect you.also depends that how you are facing that situation.well just think on this because I think we all have some special power in us given by God.Many of us know that how to handle the situation.Always try to keep yourself happy and others also. I personally like music the most and I always listen music whenever I am sad. so be happy always. :)

i'm so sorry that you were feeling sad. i wish i could give you my smile (lol). anyway, you just have to look around you and see abundant blessing When i'm sad. i go to church and pray. Other people won't really understand what exactly you're going through (but sharing your burden will ease the problem). Only the One above knows what you feel. Talk to Him in your head and then you'll feel better. It works fr me all the time. I hope this will help. God bless.

Hi there RisingStar21!!! Most of the time when I feel sad what I am doing is to face my computer and be busy doing different activities that I know.it maybe playing games,using facebook or studying anything that interests me.Sometimes I also go here in mylot and share what I am feeling and ask for some advice. It is really a good feeling when you can say what is inside your heart in whatever means that is available.For me becoz I am not very vocal and I don't usually share my problems to my family, the only way for me to be relieve of the stress brought by this problems are by sharing it here in mylot or doing some activities online.

Hi Nowadays when I am sad I just hit the internet, get involved in some discussions on myLot. Try to read some spiritual material. I do this till i am tired and then have 3-4 pegs, try to de-stress and finally go to sleep. I usually wake up the next day either with a hang-over or a renewed vigor.

Before, I tried listening to music but my feelings got worse. I also do not read that much nor sing. I tried eating a lot thou. When I was doing it, it felt fine but in the end it was not so much fun. I had difficulty breathing. Now, whenever I feel like things are not working out, I work out. This is just the best way to go I believe. Before I lift weights and the sad thoughts just goes away with every lift. But now I just jog. I guess it would be better to tire yourself down whenever you are sad. After you do this, before you know it you will be down and out. You will just awake for another beautiful morning the next day. It will give you the push to move on with whatever that bothers you now.

I would come into myLot. There are friends many many to comfort us if you are willing to share what hurts you. Just come into myLot and look at the happy post or what others have suggested (http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2485642.aspx) . You could share with us what exactly saddens you. We could try to cheer you up or at least direct you to see things from different points of view? You could also look for very sad posts and try to cheer people up. Maybe after you do, you won't feel so sad.

When I'm sad, I listen to music as well, like most people here do, I eat, go to my bed and fall asleep. But the thing that best works for me is talking or playing with my pet dog. Sometimes, we just need someone who'll just listen to us to let things out. At least my dog won't complain about my whining. (:

When i am sad then i try to concentrate to something else like i try to concentrate to listen music or watching movie. I try to watch some comedy movie then i really laugh and enjoy and forget the sorrow matter. So my suggestion to watch comedy movie when they are sad.

I watch movies on cable television or a DVD. But I don't watch comedy flicks. I prefer the action genre, specifically war movies or gangster movies. I don't know why but those types of movies somehow distracts me from thinking about my problems. I just get entertained. I guess it's a temporary solution but it's better than moping :)
