How to stop being sad?

Have you ever felt so incredibly sad that you wonder how long it will last? You keep crying and it makes you feel better momentarily. The only time you don't feel sad is when you sleep.

How did you cope?

  • If you sit there and just dwell on whatever it is then it festers. You need to throw yourself into something like work, hanging out with friends or even exercising. You may not have the energy to do so but just give it a try.
