February 18, 2007 2:01pm CST
very often there r circumstances created where a person is in depression, and i m confused if being ALONE can help getting out of it, or it even adds to it. But watever it is, i try to be alone when i m under such sitations,do u also feel like that, or u like to go with friends or ur loved ones, in such situations. watever u do, does it help u or its the time that heals it.????

Quite often actually. Whether it be because I'm stressed out or simply because I need some quiet time, I do find that I enjoy being alone at times. I've found my dorm room is a good place to just sit during the day in silence because my roommate and most of the guys in my hall have class during the day and I don't. I wouldn't say me wanting to be alone is caused by depression, just me wanting a quiet time to think things over.

I am an only child so I grew up being alone a great deal of the time. Consequently, I like to be alone alot to this day! If I am troubled by something, I like to deal with it on my own first, and then later if I feel the need, talk to others about the situation. Each day I like to have some time to myself with no others around. Fortunately my family understands this and gives me some space !

Both depending on what it is friends or family can help but sometimes you need to be a lone to sort out how you feel and intent to do about it. Everyone is different. I live in a small town and I get so discussed to see how many peiople take there problems to bars. Deaths or break ypa they are in the bar. me personally like to deal with the problems of life on my own.

Oh yeah, I like to be alone sometimes. But I am not completely alone, I have the company of a cat.

Depression is hard on everyone around you including yourself. But generally I'd have to say not to leave the depressed person alone without offering alittle kindness and support. I mean we can't stay with the depressed 24/7. But theres a reason wether medical or situations that are making the person feel that way. I crave being alone sometimes but I don't consider myself to be depress, more that I just am a type of person that needs alone time for myself. That can be going to a mall and just wondering around. Or staying up late so that I can watch what I want in the quite. I think we all need alone time. I don't think its healthy to always need other people around you to "make your day". It gives us time to contemplate ourselves and what we need to make us happy in our lives. It's just my opinion and I know theres alot of answers but this is the best that works for me. Everybodies different so you have to find out what will for for you. Some people have a chemical inbalance and nedd medications. Some just need someone to sound off on once in awhile. What ever need to be done to correct an on going situation of this needs to be addressed. It can be dangerous if left unattended.. Tammy
