Turn on some dancing tunes n blast it and dance do something constructive and positive. Go dancing, join a sports team, volunteer. Just some ideas.
Just wait for it to pass, listen to some music - whatever feels right, play with the children (a great source of distraction)- walking helps sometimes, too.
Feeling sad should only be experienced as a passing emotion, unless brought about by a particular event. Sometimes we can change the way we feel by adopting a different perspective - there is nothing more powerful than the power of the mind...
Every above comment is absolutely correct. You can be sad, but you have the power to change your perspective of your situation. You should take a proactive step to deciding that you want to be happy, then do things that you like to do. Reading, listening to music, watching TV, socializing, etc.
What you do isn't the important thing. What the important thing is changing yourself. You make your own happiness.
I think you're looking for a magical activity to cure your depression, when really, there is no magical activity.
Your emotions have EVERYTHING to do with yourself and your decisions.
But you know, it's not always bad to be sad or depressed. It is normal.
Play the blues! Or at least listen if you can't play. Listen to somebody who can express sadness so well, that they make you forget your sadness and you start to feel for them!
sad and lonely are the best companions of the writer and artist
no wonder I havnt been able to write for 6 months. When I was writting I was with my exhusband...
"Sing...Sing a song...Don't worry if its' not good enough...for anyone else to hear...Just Sing....Sing a song!"
Go do things that you enjoy doing.
If you are an internet addict like me, then you will not feel lonely and sad anymore. Hubpages alone will keep you busy and happy again!
Hey, I know that feeling by first name. What do I do? I usually get this way Friday night through Sunday. Tell you what you do; jump in the shower, fix yourself up and go out and meet new people. That's how I deal with mine. Everyone out there is not bad. I am newly separated and get lonely fromn time to time. I found a place to go and hang out and the people are friendly. I found new friends and am invited to lots events. Try it; what can you lose?
Listen to music
Call a friend
Talk to someone
Email a friend - but they don't always answer right away
Go for a long, long walk
Exercise for at least an hour
Go for a swim at the local pool
Play with your dog
Take a nap
Cook - it takes your mind off things
Play the piano - it helps if you know how
Play the accordion - see above
Watch a movie
If all else fails, cry - sometimes it gets it out of your system and you can move on
As a last resort, clean something!
I like to paint, make jewelry,or just create something new.
It usually brightened my mood.!
This is as corny as it comes, but this song is kind of cute for the person who's feeling blue: (I can't help it - I like it. It's cheerful and a good reminder. )

Other than listening to cheery songs or trying to do something that will cheer you up, there's always wallowing in misery for awhile, having a big cry and feeling better.
Celebrate your sadness.Sing loudly that you are fuckin sad.Laugh and happy because you are sad.
I used to get so depressed that I would go sit in a corner and sob. But, it doesnt do any good. The problem is still there when you come out. so, just get out and do stuff that makes you smile...like paint, draw, go see family, visit...basically,,,,GET UP AND GET OUT AND SOCIALIZE...BLOW SOME STINK OFF YOU!
it really helped me!
I would turn on the stereo with a dancing music and dance alone until I´m exhausted. Then I´ll get a book and read. That´s my outlet of feeling sad and lonely.
Prayers, they help a lot by giving me courage to overcome all my weekness and they open up new avenues of comfort & peace!
If you are lonely get off your behind and get out and meet some people - will alleviate any sadness also.. Why is everyone answering with ways to stay lonely??
Lonely is an absence of company, so unless you are completely immobile or the only inhabitant of some remote island I would suggest getting out and stop feeling sorry for yourself!

Not so much looking for a sermon, just comments on what you personally do to fight the despair of loneliness.

I feel like I'm losing me. And I don't know who's taking my place. Or how to get myself back. Or if I should even try to hold on to me?

But i have to show that I am all fine and happy in front of my son and hubby. Its frustrating. Have you ever felt like this and then what one needs to do? It is hard to smile when actually i don even feel like reacting.
