I feel sad for no reason

Sometimes, even with friends or family, i'll just feel lonely and sad. I'm not depressed, but I just feel so lonely sometimes.


I don't expect any responses. I just needed to get this off my chest.

I read a lot of the comments above..... Uhm...
If you feel alone whether you are alone or not, I think it's best to distract yourself with something you enjoy, and if you ever are chilling with any of your friends or family, I think socializing a lot is a good way to rid that lonely feeling.

Do things you enjoy doing with friends or family.

Loneliness feels bad, but there are ways to cure it.
Talk to your friends (the one's you know'd understand) and talk to your family, if you feel safe doing so.

Then try these remedies:
-Green, Black or White Tea to replace Coffee/Soda
-Sleep earlier. Lack of sleep can set you into emotional switches
-Sleep at night, and not in the day. Your circadian rhythm might be revolting, and telling you to sleep nightly, not daily.
-Express your feelings for people openly, bottled emotion can send you into a tailspin.

for some reason when i stopped drinking coffee like crazy every day, and replaced it with green tea and other mysterious legal herbs, I dont get depressed, or have as much anxiety. more focus. I am in pretty good moods actually which is rare for me. maybe its just a placebo effect.

sometimes its just what you put in your body, but of course there are many other reasons people get depressed. its a sign for you to change something in yourself, just like pain when you put your hand in the fire.

I think some people tend to be predisposed to certain conditions such as depression. It can run in families. I agree that there could be a link to what you eat. Obviously we don't eat brain food at McDonald's. Green tea? I'll have to try that.

I wasn't being that serious, but I've heard it can make a huge difference. In any case, if you ever get a blood test, consider getting a Vitamin D level check. I just got one and I was very deficient and only just started taking supplements as instructed by a doctor.

In general we all get lonely sometimes, some people moreso, but even some of the most outgoing and sociable people can feel that way.

I get really bad winter depression and vitamin D does help me.

But even aside from that I feel the same way sometimes too... can't really figure out what it is...

Well, here I go:

What do you want to do in life? Do you know?

You might be thinking 'Gee, Ugly. That has absolutely nothing to do with what I am talking about.' But bear with me.

Humans thrive off of success. Climbing our own personal mountains and staking our claims. We push hard to get what we want and crabe that sense of accomplishment. What does this have to do with you feeling down? Well, let me tell you:

Start a list. Things you want to do. Don't think big. Building the next death star can wait, I want you to think small . Do you want a better hair cut? Lose a pound? Take up a new hobby? Go for a walk?

To be honest, the 'what' doesn't matter. The 'do' matters. Accomplishing goals, no matter how small, keeps us motivated in life. It suddenly you don't have time to worry about how you look or what others are thinking or how lonely you feel. You've got shit to do, you aint got no time for that stuff.

Once little goals are easy, you can think bigger.But every big goal is just a bunch of related smaller goals.

So, go do things. Plan goals and try to get them done. Be proud of it. I bet what you are feeling will vanish amd you won't even realize it.

It doesn't sound to me like you have depression, so I wouldn't worry about stuff like that unless this becomes a serious problem, in which case go to a professional. If you're a teenager or young adult, mood swings would offer the most obvious explanation for your problem. They're totally normal - questions like yours are pretty common on these forums, showing that a lot of people feel the same way =)

Still, if you want to feel better, just remember that bad moods go with time. Also, focus on things that make you happy, areas that you feel you could improve in or general stuff you'd like to try or do; giving yourself a sense of accomplishment can really help to get rid of bad moods, in my experience.

Maybe it's a phase or maybe you just need some changes in your life. Ask yourself what really bothers you, something you wish was different?

Uh, i'm not too good on depression stuff but...

Don't be hard on yourself.
Heck, if i was there, i would sit on the couch with you and eat your favorite kinds cookies and watch your favorite TV show with you if i could.

...But i can't.

So you HAVE to be happy around you because i can't.

Promise?

Good.

Are you a teenager? I felt like that all the time until recently. Like Opium said, it sounds a bit like depression, you may still want to consult someone. But I do think most people go through this stage in their lives at some point.
