How do you deal with sadness

Updated on May 17, 2012

Sometimes things can be so overwhelming in life that it can affect us in so many ways. Events in life can make us sad or sometimes even depressed. At first we can all become sad and then if we let it get to us, it can turn into depression. How many of us have felt sad at one point in our life but maybe get over it? Some of us find ways to get over it, however, some us don't always get over it so easily.

There are ways that we can get over the sadness that we have experienced during the day. Some people tend to eat their sadness away, sometimes even the depression that they may feel. Others also take care of it by working out and doing vigorous exercise so they can let go of what they have built up. This other way has probably been the best way for others and that is talking it out with their best friend or one of their family members.

When I get sad, I tend to workout more because that is a way that my body lets go of the stress and I tend to feel better afterwards. But there are times when it takes more than just working out to help me figure out what is happening and how to find a solution. When I need more help I find a friend to talk to because I can easily talk to that one person and know that they are listening to me. That is when I can say, what are true friends for. They are there for you through thick or thin to listen to you and be there for you no matter what the sitation may be.

Another way to help cope with the sadness or depression you may feel is by writing it down on a piece of paper or even a journal that no one read except you. You can put your frustration in words and sometimes you find that you feel better because you have let go of what is weighing you down.

How do you cope with your sadness or depression? Have you gotten so sad or depressed that it has ruined a relationship or even a friendship? Do you have to take certain medication because you have let your sadness turn into a deep depression?

      I write, talk to a friend or workout to deal with sadness. Sometimes, the passing of time is the best medicine. I also find a cup of hot tea and a good night's sleep works wonders!
