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.
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?
Sing Listen to music Read 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 Garden Kick box Watch a movie
If all else fails, cry - sometimes it gets it out of your system and you can move on
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!
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!

Too make a long story short, my 11 yr old son decided to go for a bike ride yesterday, while I was working. My 16 yr old daughter was babysitting and he decided to ride his bike to tops early in the morning before she...
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.
