    Recently, I've turned to those close to me, and just hugged them. That seems to take a lot of pain away. My mom and my best she-friend are the ones that goes best with.

    find someone to vent to if I can, else remember that the first rays of daylight will pierce many a sad emotion.

    crying helps too, somehow times seem to go faster when you cry.

    I play CDs. Relaxing CDs, or I hug someone, usually the victim nearest me.

    Play with my little boy. Three-year-olds are so full of excitement and joy at everything around them that it's hard to stay sad.

    I withdraw. I distract my mind, sometimes I pray... but it does happen that I can only get a coffee or ten or just wait till it's over. I tend to drink harder too, with either abysmal endurance (medium bottle of booze to no effect) or extra sensitivity (this same amount makes me seek a piece of floor, preferably warm).

    Hugs and 'tisses from my daughter usually work.

    If its late at night and I can't sleep (when I'm down, I get insomnia) I'll play NWN or read a bit, just to take my mind off of it.

    When I feel sad, I usually listen to some music, often blues. Like John Lee Hooker said: The Blues is a healer.

    I listen to music, and go out with friends to make some fun and forget about it

    I play guitar, often blues. I know it sounds a bit like a stereotyoe, but I assure you it works.
    I remember I once read about a statistic saying that most people, when they're sad, like to listen to sad music! (I do it too, actually) Isn't it strange?

    Go to the computer and browse SP for a while. I might even express my sadness or ANGER here...

    I usually stay sad for a while, listen to loud music (Evanescence or Eminem) be really nasty if people talk to me too much and just sit by myself and think.

    [​IMG] Spend time with my family. If I am too sad, to the point where I can't be kind, then I try to find some quiet time.

    Call many women on the phone and beg for everlasting sex, hahahahahahahahaaa...JK.

    Honestly I get my baseball bat(I must purchase a new one every once in a while because I always smash them to pieces) and go outside and break and smash anything that I deem no longer worthy of it's pathetic and utterly useless existence on the prime material plane!

    I listen to my music. Depending on what made me sad, I'll listen to different kinds of music, but it is usually heavy metal. I find that music can get me back in to my "neutral" mood even if I am mad, sad, happy, hiper, or just bored. :rolling:

    Even in the last few weeks (some of you know what happened) I'm not that sad too often. And if I'm sad, there's probably someone around to hug and talk too. If not, I probably get a phonecall or sms of a friend asking how I'm doing. They come to my place in no time or invite me. Friends are really important to me.

    IF nothing of that happens, I'll probably post some frustrating things on the boards and listen to some music.

    Hmm...

    In the summer I don't have anyone to hug :( , but I always have people to talk to that respond in a caring manner. The only problem is reaching them. I am sad often and I brood a lot, and I always dwell on any mistakes I make. But if I vent my feelings out, listen to my awesome Lion King music (Hakuna Matata), and play a little BG2, it always cheers me up.
