    I read, escaping reality for a period of time, the length of which depending on how sad I am, truly helps, but most people don't understand that and seem happy to constantly interrupt. Another method I employ is to blast my calming playlist. Or if I'm angry and sad, my raging playlist. I haven't been able to cry for a long time, so I don't really have that as an option.

    I don't do anything special to ease sadness or despair.
    I let those feelings run their course and in good time move on with my life.


    I just noticed Julie's posts in this thread... it appears she has left the forum.
    That's too bad, I liked reading her comments.

    Nothing is definitive, even if it seems - nothing, until every possibility will have been considered.

    srsly speaking I just tend to see sadness as part and parcel of life. On this end, I do identify myself with Sparrow. The only additional thing is that since I tend to dabble with humanism via non-conventional means (read: Experience both 1st and 3rd person wise), I dun really pay THAT much attention on this end compared to normal ppl. It's like "yeah shit happens, so?". Two things to decide any given circumstances. External factors and internal ones. The former is a case of imminent forces at work so as to speak. The latter is down to humane flaws from the self that ANYONE could have committed just as easily under similar situations.

    These days I feel a bit more sad than I have felt for a while now and nothing really works to be honest. Maybe for a while but nothing permanent. I just hope it will make its circle and I get back to my normal happy self soon. at least now I can eat again so that must be an improvement.

    Bhangra did cheer me up though :)

    I don't know...I just like to listen to some romantic songs with low-light while looking at fantasy photos on the computer.It makes me sad too but somehow that's what I want when I am sad.

    Almost my entire music library is sad songs, I too find them pretty awesome when it comes to helping sadness. Misery loves company, and all that :p I find them cathartic, much like reading/watching one of the scenes that turn me into a blubbering idiot.

    indeed they do. It's good having close mates you can rely on.
