    I call Becca. Talking to Becca seems to brighten up my day more than anything else. Becca is my girlfriend if you couldn't guess that.

    Sleep is also a good alternative. When I sleep, I don't think about all if lifes problems.

    Or I play bass or tuba. Tuba more when sad. It takes so much concentration and involves so much of my mind and body, I can't think about being sad.

    -Read a Terry Pratchett book

    -Sleep

    Doing nothing and just sitting there is sadness isn't dealing with it IMO. Dealing with it would be talking to someone who can help, or doing something to clear your mind, like all of the things above.

    Many times, solutions to problems and such can be found when you aren't even thinking about it at all.

    For instance, last night, I was really upset over a problem with some friends. I stopped thinking about it and practiced tuba. When I was done, the sadness never came back, and I was able to see all sides of the issue, and I was able to get over it becasue I understood it.

    Kinda confusing, but I think you get my point.

    i'm in the same boat as dave...


    i can get really happy about stuff (for a little while)


    but i'm pretty much always in a neutral, apathetic state of mind (in a good way) :)

  12. Just ignore it and hope it goes away. Bottling feelings up accomplishes many great things.

  15. I sit around, then when I realize I'm being pathetic, I do something I enjoy.

    -take care of the house
    -clean the car
    -do something to the bike
    -play music/bass
    -call friends

    Otherwise, I drop out. if it's something in particular that's making me sad, I just put it outta my mind. No probs.
     
  16. -smoke
    -drink
    -last resort, cyanide pills

  18. I was gonna say that...

    But here's my other list:

    -Listen to music

    -Play the bass/guitar/drums... whatever is around

    -Go outside for a walk

    -Break stuff (just for when I'm angry, like right now)
