I always go to bed to sleep when I become sad... when you sleep, you forget everything in such small span of time at the same time it relax our body. And sometimes I go to mall to entertain myself with all the latest and popular gadgets by only looking at them, although sometimes I become more sad because I can't buy what I want...(huhuhu). Anyway, these are only the two place that i go when I become sad... to refresh myself to all of my negative thoughts. So mylotters, where do you go when you are sad?

when i am sad then i first try to solve the problem which made me sad if i found that i can not do anything in this problem then i listen to soft music.i feel very relaxing and enthusiastic after that.i have more power to focus on my problem and try to solve it again because it is possible that when you are sad you can not find opportunities.in relaxed state i most probably find out the way to solve the problem.after all running away from the problem will make it more complicated.so try to solve it always.

You're right... if there's something wrong in your life, just confront it... never run... because if you do, it will only chase you and will become more complicated in the future. =)

When I am sad I like to be around family. My kids keep me busy and soon I forget my worries. I also love to sit quietly and watch the ocean. There is something about watching the waves crash that changes my mood and makes me calm.

Yes, that makes me feel good too... but the ocean is too far here in my place so what I do is I'm watching a sea splash in youtube... and listening to it and imagine like it is real...

when i am sad i stay in my room and open my laptop and surf on the net or watch any movies i like. and eventually it makes me feel better. But that is when it is impossible for me to go out of our house because of some reasons. My most favorite place is nature. I go to places where i could see green and plants and the nice scenery.. other times i go to the beach and watch the waves and the sunset. Then i feel better and happy..

You talked about favorite place when I am sad, I go to church. I just sit there looking at the altar and later I will start talking to God. There are times I want to forget what is feeling me down so I go to the mall and go straight to boutique store, pet store or toy store. I also visit gadget stall and music store. After that I will go home, but I have to feel okay before doing it. At home, i go to the living room and watch funny movies to make me laugh and then when I am good, i will just write some stuff on my journal and cover my face with blanket and sleep. Inside that blanket is me, having a little cry and I will pray then I will i know I will be okay.

Hi grecy! Do you like beach? That's a nice place to go too! And speaking of crying... what do you think of men that is crying??? Do you think that they are a marshmallow?
• Philippines
22 Jun 11
beach would be good as I will be having peace there. I will just be talking to myself, all by myself. of course men cries but they are not marshmallow as it is a food. . I am a bit okay by that, if they initiate it to admit. If they are crying about me that would be ...awesome! joking....

Like it or not, sadness is part of life. In your case, being depressed makes you prone to lie in bed. You also try to channel your attention to something more appealing to you. Sadness also has to do with things that troubles you like abused and neglected children, discrimination at workplace, etc. Sadness also has to do with mourning for the loss either family member or friends.

That's all correct, but you didn't answer the question, but it's okay. Anyway, you do know a lot about sadness, and my sadness is coming from discrimination and having no friends around. It makes me really very sad until now but I'm trying hard not to be disturb by that everyday. =)

It's not about answering your question. Your way of 'sad' is ambiguous or not very specific. You could probably ask about a place I would go when I am depressed or what kind of things I should do when I am troubled. The word sad itself is not only about what can you make you cry. It could mean more.

I understand what you want to convey about sadness, and I'm sorry for not being specific from my topic. I agree that sadness is not only about what makes us cry but it also do make us remember what is important and essential in our life. Being happy is to forget everything while being sad and alone makes remember important things.

Well the best place to be when I'm sad is my own room. I feel really relaxed and comfortable in my room. I swear there's no place I feel more comfortable than my room. I just shut the door and stay in with music playing, or like you take a nap. And the other thing I like to do when I'm sad is have fried chicken. May sound a bit weird but it really makes me happy and forget all that's happened, ven if it's temporarily.

The quiet time... sometimes I become rude telling myself that why God is not listening to me? He does not looking at me... He is not answering any of my prayer. Well if you just watched Bruce Almighty, I'm like that... Actually to be honest, things are not going well to me this day...

Well, when I am sad and feeling down, a lot of times I will find myself coming here on myLot and posting back to others discussions and trying to take my mind off of what is really going on. But then there are times I just want to be left alone, and going to sleep is good because then you can forget about everything, and hope things are better when you wake up.

Most of the times i try to throw the sad feelings out of my mind. If i feel sad i like to go to a lonely place where there is no noise.There i try to pray to God to remove all the sad feelings out of my mind. I go to the terrace to remove all the sad thoughts away. I would prefer to go to malls as people would see my sad face over there. I would go to a beach or picnic spot where there is silence and peace. In the end of the day if the sad thoughts come back then think that moment is already over and you are going to enjoy better and happy days ahead.

I fight sadness, because i don't want it to consume me. Whenever i feel sadness, i would buy my comfort food or a chocolate to eat. Then, i would go home and because my husband isn't home from work yet, i would be alone in our room and there i would cry to ease out my sadness. After i have cried and felt relief i would now pray and imagine God with me. Then, i would talk with Him about my problem. After a while, i would feel fine already. Then i will watch my favorite show. Or sometimes, if i have extra money i would go to the mall and find a nice blouse or sandals. That would now make me happy .

When I am sad, I prefer to be alone. I often take medication to sleep, when sad. I did it so I did not cry. But, now I've never done. Now, I often shut myself in my room and cried myself to feel tired.

I usually go to bed too. If I can't sleep, I watch TV (usually some comedy to see if helps me). Also, sometimes, when I have the energy I go out to run on a park. The fresh air and the nature makes me feel better. If I'm on vacation, I go to the beach, that for me is the best place to go when I'm sad. I wish I could live near to one.

When I'm sad, I am always looking for a place, far from the source of grief. I chose to stay away from the cause of my grief, and contemplating why sorrow comes to me. I prefer to own, and not bullied others, when I'm sad. So, I would definitely choose a quiet place. Places I often visit when I'm sad is mountain.

I used to go on top of our house, the roof and bring my guitar with me. But since it is rainy season already, I go to my room with my laptop and visits facebook to look at my friends whereabouts, go to mylot, or even post on Triond or e-zine. I like going to our church's coordinating centers. Usually, I spend more time there instead of being home. When I am in service, I feel less sad.

I love to be in church too.. but I can't play music there now, they don't let me... So I decided to quit and it feels me so very down. I hope I can play music again for God... =)

I am not the type who dwell in sadness so I really don't have a favorite place where I could spend sad times. I could be sad but that usually don't even last. I could easily get over. Maybe because I have so much reasons to be happy than to be sad.

I like to sit in our study and read a book when I am feeling sad. Sometimes I just don't want to talk to people so I find it nice to isolate myself and just absorb myself in a good book and be able to forget about the rest of the world. I also have a playlist of music that I can listen to when I am feeling down, and this usually does the trick with regards to cheering me up a little bit. When I am seriously down though I call my boyfriend and have a good cry down the phone to him, as he always manages to cheer me up no matter what the matter is.

When I'm really sad I generally love to be with my boyfriend who is also my best friend. I just hold his hand or cry on his shoulder or whatever depending on whatever comes to my mind. It's best to be with your bf/gf 'cause then you know that it doesn't matter if no one supports you, he/she will always be there for you. Just my opinion :) Or you could be with your best friend. Sadness shared is sadness halved :)

I know that feeling, although I don't have any best friend and girlfriend right now... I know the goodness of having someone beside you, even in times of happiness and sadness. It so good to be in love and to trust... =)
