    If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be alone?

    Or you believe in discussing it with near one to get relieved and freshen up?

    I prefer to be alone when I am in a bad mood. When my mood takes a turn for the worse I tend to get very crabby and people really annoy me when they aren't really doing anything wrong. I would rather not hurt anyone's feeling so being alone for a little bit helps me to refocus and perk up.

    I think it all depends what has put me in the bad mood. If it has been an argument with someone I will be with each day, a co-worker or partner, I would wait a little bit of time and then discuss the problem again. I also think you have to consider the person's temperament you are dealing with as well.

    If it is a piece of bureaucracy or an eBay woe, I would most likely go it alone.. Certainly if I had spoken about it before many times smile

    being alone is the most harmful thing for anyone  we must find the one that we feel comfort with and be with him it's not matter if he friend , soul mate, or anyone you feel good with

    I'm never in a bad mood, I don't let moods control me, I always prefer to go alone and sort out my own problems.  I have the opinion that it ain't good to talk.

      It is good to talk, but you have to talk to the right people and few of them only. Usually I am just tired or hungry when I am in a bad mood.

      No it isn't, talking just winds up the problem more and doesn't allow you to let it go.

    If I am in a seriously bad mood, I usually just want to be alone for a while. Sometimes a good night's sleep can change your perspectives. There are times when talking it out can really help, though, so it depends on the exact situation.

      Yes, I do agree with you completely here. Thank you.

    Certainly! Why be the butt hole that brings down everyone else just because you are having a bad day?

      Thanks for your response. But many a time one may get a better solution and instant relieve by sharing it with closest friends/family. Just it may be an option. Thanks.

    Normally, yes. I love being alone when I'm upset. I consider it the respectful thing to do. You don't want to irritate those around you or punish them by being around you in that state. Usually, just rant and come back later. But my husband can always make me feel better. He knows how to relax, calm, and make me laugh regardless of my current mood. So he's the only person I'll be around when upset.

    I would like to be able to talk to someone I'm close to about what's bothering me, but if that's not possible, then yes, I'd rather be alone. Especially if you have to be around people who can't know you're in a bad mood, it's stressful to put up a front.

    I do prefer to be alone. That way I can relax everything that has fired up, lol. SIlence usually relaxes the mind and I find it a very good remedy, I find myself going back to my normal senses :smile. Talking can also be very relieving, but generally, I think to be alone for a while is better. Thankfully I am flexible.

    Happy Valentine to you dghbrh. -Tonette

    Yes, I prefer to be alone since it gives me time to sort through my thoughts and to process what is happening.  When someone insists on getting the problem out of me when I am clearly saying nothing is bothering me, even if you can see that something is bothering me, this is the clue to leave me alone because if you continue to agitate me it is not going to be nice if I explode on you.  That's why they say leave well enough alone.

    Yes , alone is where misery belongs , Why ? Because we should solve our own mood problems without hurting others !  I always go off alone .  Where else can YOU find  your own center or solution !Too often we force our  problems on others .

    In bad mood, i like to sit alone for a while and think about the reason of that bad thing which made my mood off. After that i like to discuss it with my wife or my nearer one.

    Yes I do generally prefer to keep to myself. I wouldn't want to give a harsh reply to someone that isn't the cause of my bad mood.
