You know that song from Camelot "What Do the Simple Folk Do?" (to help them escape when they're blue?) Well, I'm wondering if you have some advice for someone who is lonely? In addition to finding a friend, what do you do?
Listening to the Blues always makes me smile, especially when I'm down!
---keep busy with things you like to do, call people you like to talk to,invite your friend for a short trip anywhere you both might have fun--- keep busy!
you should know what I do to escape the blues I write...always helps me escape the lonliness. Also I read or go for a walk and just let my imagination take over and run wild.
*hugs* mega hope you feel better chica!
I like to smoke a lot of crack then post on the forums, verrrry relaxing!!
Network, network, network. Call people, get out with people, etc. And since you indicated that you are doing that, I find the greatest thing for me to chase away loneliness and the blues is to do something I'm passionate about. For me it's writing music. The new thing for me is writing articles and hubs. Sometimes cooking and inviting a gang over to eat it with me.
I find that I need to increase my circle of friends and intimates rather regularly. I find people incredibly intolerable, and wonderfully fascinating. A few are even good people.
I have several pets around me. I go out to see my horses or whatever. BUT even one dog or cat is helpful. Dogs are good because they need to be exercised. Exercising.....even going for a 10 minute walk helps a ton for depression and anxiety....believe me, I know
Thanks for all the great ideas, I saw an article this morning in the news that says loneliness may be contagious - so I had to write a hub about it and in the process realized that I myself feel lonely alot. But, hubpages, you must know, has helped me feel a lot less lonely. So thankyouthankyouthankyou and bless you too! I should go exercise I know, but this is way funner right now.
Getting the blues is a bummer. When it happens to me, and it does, I try to not let it keep me down too long.
Turn on some music - whatever you feel like. I listen to country when I am blue, hard rock when I am bent, christian music at times too.
Dance a little, destress, focus on the music and step back a little. Sometimes I can redirect my attention to a positive, sometimes it justs helps me distance from what is wrong, but I always feel better.
Hope it is a helpful thought, Holly
