Do you do anything to try to cheer yourself up, or do you just wait it out?
I usually do something to cheer myself up, but sometimes I just don't feel like being cheered up so I'll indulge myself and listen to whatever music matches my mood.
Mixed bucket for me. Sometimes I feel emo and want to be sad, so I wait it out. Usually I'll talk to Blisscakes and grab a cuddle/chat. Othertimes I'll go straight to comedy city. Nothing like a few episodes of Family Guy/Simpsons to lift the mood. Pet the dog (not a euphemism). Think of the less fortunate.
More obscure methods include pushing Bliss down the stairs, throwing rocks at children on their way home from school and reading the joke about the girl on the swing with no arms.
Putting some upbeat music on is a great one too! Suprised I left that out.
Normally i just wait it out,like i am at the moment,eventually the sadness will pass,or be replaced with another emotion.
Depending on what has caused the sadness,is a factor as well,some things will pass in few hours,some can take weeks even months,in the last week or so i have gone from sadness to anger to something that resembles my normal state.
I watch movies and do hanjie puzzles.
If nothing else it helps to occupy my brain.
...........If it gets worse I go see the Doctor and get shrunked. :lol:
I usually give myself sometime to cry and think it over etc (depending what it is)
Then after that I keep myself as busy as possible to keep my mind of it, usually try and surround myself with people to cheer me up.
I either try to either cheer myself up, by doing something I love to do. Or sometimes I wallow and listen to sad music.
I'm the total opposite. I prefer to be alone when I'm miserable. I wish I was home right now so I could just hide in bed all day.
I am the same way I don't like to be bothered when I am in a bad mood.
Alcohol & Video Games help.
When I'm sad I give myself the chance to really feel it instead of fighting it. I listen to sad music, for example.
Then when I think I've spent too much time being sad, I talk to myself and say "mourning is over! now let's go have fun". I surround myself with cheerful people (being with my kids is a plus, they're always cheerful). I put on upbeat music and sing/dance to it.
