This thread is somewhat complicated, yet simple. I just simply know what remedy you use to get you from sad/depressed to happy/optimistic! I know a topic like this probably belongs in the health section, but the health section is probably the least active section on this forum, so forgive me and please mods, let this thread stay here!

I'll go first, when I'm unhappy, I watch a good film (usually halal films), something to get me out of my current state. If I'm down on something like school, I watch a movie about French sailors, that should take me from one setting to almost a different world.

NOW YOU!

when im sad/depressed i tend to stay away from people as much as i can because sometimes im so irritated that i tend to get angry on people. so best way for me is to stay away from people, sleep if it causes headache ... or mostly eat whatever i feel like & watch tv.

My own belief is to try to eliminate the causes of sadness and depression. With them removed there is no need to have to face the meaning of having to move from Sadness to happiness.








For myself the knowledge that Allah(swt) exists, is all forgiving and just,
overwhelms any concept of sadness or depression. True, I do feel pain and do suffer loses, but those are just temporary blows to my own ego. Very trivial and of no consequence in my over all goal. What gives me the right to even think that my concepts of depression can surpass the overall fairness of Allah(swt)

lolwhatever .... we dont have beech in lahore... i cant go to karachi for that & what i know, its never empty .....
i stay away from people because is bad manners to be angry about something the other people had no hand in ... and its very rude to be angry with people ... especially those who didnt have anything to do with my sadness etc.

well i loose my temper easily so instead of hurting people i stay away ... thats what i can think as the best possible way ...
its fun with friends ... one really tends to forget everything .... and laughter does come naturally when with friends.
by the way you are right ....the sea looks beautiful & soothing when one is alone or isnt disturbed in any way ...

lol...All I need to do it find the right surah by Sheikh Shuraim (or by Sheikh Budair.....Sometimes)....Surah An Nur is a beautiful surah......

But listenning to emotional recitations makes me feel even more sad....But Sheikh SHuraim reading Surah Nur is AWESOME!!!!!!! :thumbs_up

Sad-Aid huh? Really nothing to do, but to forget about it.. if the source of sadness still exists, then i ask for its removal in my duas.. Hmmmm... there is also a beautiful dua for this type of sickness, i'll post it here:

"Oh Allah! Truly I seek refuge in You from anxiety and grief; and I seek refuge in You from inability and laziness; and I seek refuge in You from miserliness and faint-heartedness; and I seek refuge in You from the burden of debt and the coercion of men"
