What do you do when you're feeling sad?

Recommended Posts

Yeah I know. Not a very professional topic title.

 

However I'm asking this because I'm feeling generally sad right now... And noticed something. I repeat the same thing every single time I go into this state. It's almost natural.

 

When I get into this state of sadness or regret or anything I do the same thing every time. One thing being listening to this song over and over again.

 

 

Don't ask me why.

 

Also I tend to drink a lot water. I don't know why but when I feel this way I just sit here, listening to that song and drinking absurd amounts of water.

 

So I'm curious. Do you follow a routine like I do when I go into this saddened state or are you fairly unpredictable? Also you don't have to tell but what do you do in a state such as this?

When I'm sad, I usually listen to music, look at funny vids, or look at action movies. Those 3 things usually perk me up when I'm down (Which barely happens in the first place).

Whenever I feel down/depressed or sad. I like to talk with my friends or listening to music will usually cheer me up. However talking with someone I trust dearly about what is on my mind helps me out alot.

When I get sad I get a glass of chocolate milk, curl up in bed, and listen to any one of Thrice's newer albums, for they are very uplifting!

When I get sad ... I KICK SAD'S ASS, DON'T GIVE ME FEELS SAD! No but in all seriousness I probably go to sleep, read, or drink tons of coke and go outside with my shirt off and wait for something to happen.

When, I'm sad I usually just sorta talk myself out of it or I just do something to take my mine of it and I usually feel better after that. Listening to music or watching entertaining videos helps too.

Playing Muse on guitar, ponies, and diablo 3! (Mostly Muse)

 

Music just seems to lift my spirits just as good as if not better than mlp!

When I'm sad, I often go and write music. It actually cheers me up some how, I do really know why. Maybe it's because of the mood that I generally write in, heroic and orchestral. Sometimes I can even channel that sadness into a great composition.

 

I also often go and relax in my room for a bit. Lay down and let myself think it out.

When I'm sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead.

 

But seriously, I will put on some feel good, pump up tracks with my headphones so I can get the music as close to my brain as I can, I even press them against my head to get it even closer. Then turn up the volume as loud as I can stand it.

I will usually listen to music, or just wait it out. Some times a good movie will help clear my mind as well. Though if depression really hits me hard, I will go to a virtual video game place with some of my friends and go on massive zombie killing sprees. That is the best type of antidepressant for me. But If I am handling a death or tragic related depression, there isn't much I can really do besides wait it out.

I usually just sit their, sprawled out on my bed while post-rock, or some other mellow music, plays in the background. Mellowness can actually help sadness, for me.

when im sad, i contemplate things

 

 

i usually get sad/depressed when im bored, i start contempateing things, i go over my entire life i think about stuff, though i almost always go over the more sad and negative parts of my life, ill do that for a few hours, ill talk to my self while contempating things, the sadness usually goes away once i find something to do, usually a funny video or something snaps me out of it

There is nothing much I can do, I take legal drugs and try to distract myself witth the forums or video games but I know that I have to change my living environment for the sadness to be truly lifted.

I listen to heavy metal. It always calms me down. Getting drowned in any form of media works well too. Laughing/talking with friends works well too. I either use the MLP forums or Yahoo Answers (I'm That Metal Guy, some may have seen me) as well.

 

I also watch MLP.

I will always, whether it be something very depressing or not, Listen to the song Take to the sky by Owl ccity, and draw the item that is troubling me in a happy manner, turning it into a grace instead of a sin.

I don't get sad, I just get more pissed off.

 

Isolate myself from everyone, watch My Little Pony, and just enjoy some alone time for a bit.

I listen to this:

But in all seriousness, I listen to music, write, draw, and/ or just kind of wander around outside. When I'm home I'll usually pet my cats or dog. Unfortunately I usually end up listening to something sad like the Sound of Silence and then I just get more sad :(

I unfortunately take my anger out on others. Passive-aggressively, but still. I just can't seem to get away from others when I feel that way and it distracts me from doing anything to quell it.

Depends on the type of sadness. Recently, I found out that my crush friend-zoned me. :(. Generally, what I do is that I ace the truth and get over it. Idk, that's just me. It's easier said than done :-)

It depends. If I'm feeling a little down I can generally ignore it. But if I'm sad AND feeling lethargic, it becomes almost impossible to do anything but just sit/stand/lie down and just stare blankly into space. Also in some cases I just walk around if I am able to do so, never helps. Eventually I find the energy to get up and do something.

When I'm sad, I usually listen to this song for 7 hours.

Makes me so HAPPY. It's like magic or something. And sometimes I just think about stuff that might happen to me in the future that is good. :)

I usually go to take a nap when I feel sad, maybe when I wake I up I feel more possitive. Actually I'm pretty sad right now, and the best remedy it's to hang around good friends that are there to put a smile on your face and cheer you up ;)

When I become sad for what ever reason , most of the time I'd just play video games, or go to practice for ultimate frisbee. The sadness will still be there, but I try to not think about it. Most of the time i won't remember it until maybe a day or two later and same thing. Most of the time I'll only be sad for a day tops but in intervals and you wouldn't know anything is wrong.

I usually get mad at myself for feeling sad and then slip into a spiraling downfall of both depression and self-pity. The self-pity fuels the depression and the depression fuels the self-pity. And then I realize I am just being a whiny American and get furiously mad at myself and just shut away my emotions for a time. During that time I tend to realize how unexciting my life is and how I rarely ever feel true happiness or sadness. And then I go read, write, and/or set things on fire. Also, music can help.

 

Surprisingly enough for me, being empathetic/sympathetic to the emotional pain of others can actually sooth my own pain.

I drink.

 

Generally, I do something else, be it video games, music, friends, or some combination of the three. Or I figure out the bright side of the situation.
