Sometimes we just tend to shut ourselves from the world when we encounter some bumps in our lives. But we dont realize that being alone is just making things worse for us. It is always best to talk to someone or at least to have an outlet.

I refuse to talk to people for sometime. I try to put reasons in everything that has happened. I let time pass then I open up to a close friend or I keep myself engrossed with work.  What do you do if you feel that you need space from everything else?

I have a very good friend that I talk to all the time.  I know many people that will work to forget what is going on.  But, you have to face the problems at some point.  Sometimes when enough time goes by things can look better.

I know I have great friends but sometimes I’d rather spare them from all my problems. I don’t want to disturb them unless I am really desperate.

For me take a step back for a momment from the things that “push” me.

I believed if we try to respond something when we are not in the “right” mind, its only make the things worse. However if we give a little time to clear up our mind, everything will look less hard.

That’s why i agree with you that when you are feel down, don’t let yourself  alone. You need others perspective  to show you another angle that maybe you are not think of it.

Or for people that maybe find its kinda hard to open up with others, i suggest to try to do things that make you feel better and happy – listening music, watching comedy, etc. It help to make your head clear and able to find the solutions of your problem. 🙂

I think we have to value life and all that it offers in the darkest of moments to be inspired.

Yesterday, Blogjob suspended reward system for its members but the generosity of spirit and care for fellow members that I saw there was unprecedented.

It was amazing and it made me so happy and proud to have known all these people who started as strangers but have become such good friends and proved themselves in time of need.

Never feel hopeless and if you can, help someone else for light to dispel your own darkness.

Surprisingly sometimes,  strangers are the ones who could push us up more and become our virtual angels.  I have a handful of them.

I tend to be alone for awhile and think things over, then I have friends who I can call and just talk about how I feel. It’s a great feeling when you have someone just being there to listen to you, not judging you but just listen to what you say.

My form of amusement is through writing and inspiring people.  I feel relieved when I get to help others because eventually it lightens up my burden then I am able to think through.

I agree, writing is very helpful in getting rid of all negative emotions. It calms me down and it stops us from saying things in anger.

Good friends are a great blessing indeed.

I get to express myself more through writing. It has become my medium of reminding me that everything will be alright in the end.

I used to talk to my friends when I was younger, but when I grow older, it seems like it’s not easy to find a person to talk to. Moreover, I’d prefer to solve it on my own, or talk to my husband.

Now, I usually meditate. I like to write too, while writing, I can clear my mind easier and usually I can find a way out too.

Not everyone could be like us. Some tend to lead to depression and their lives become messed up.

I believe it’s the choice we made. We can choose to always stay in the “suffering” mode, or we can walk out from the depression.

When I was younger, I used to be very depressed while I was at work. Though I enjoyed doing my programming work, rushing for the deadline always made me feel very stressful. I was just hanging around there and couldn’t walk out from the “negative emotion mode”. I have been talking to my friends and husband, until there was a time my husband asked me to stop (not rudely). He thinks I have enough of self sympathy, and it’s time for me to walk out from the depression. I didn’t really need any medication or visiting the psychiatrist, though I thought of visiting. He just made me realize, it’s enough and I really needed to make a change and walk out from the dark side. That’s not what I want.

Then I stopped talking about it, but being more positive. I wrote a lot when I was feeling down, and it did help me a lot. I just think that, first we need to figure out the issue, and we need to make a change, instead of keep letting us sink into it.

Think positive. Count our blessing. Be grateful for everything. ^_^

I have been through real bad times. It came to a point that I was contemplating of ending my life. But my love for my kids weighed more. I had to live for my kids. So I rechanneled my tboughts into giving a better life to my kids instead of sulking with my own issues.
