When your heart is full of sadness – how do you find relief?


Some days I do not feel like doing anything other than being alone, in the dark. How do I deal with those days? I sooth myself in many different ways. One of my favorite ways of soothing myself is to eat something delicious. Therefore, I make sure to treat myself to something delicious often throughout my days.

Sometimes it makes me feel better to look at beautiful pictures of nature, rain, the ocean… or listen to my favorite soothing music during the breaks at work. At home I usually don’t have time to relax during the days because my little babies want to play with me all the time, which also makes it easier to distract myself from my own sadness. Seeing their cute, happy faces and hearing their eager voices always makes me smile.

The best time to sooth myself is at night when everyone else is sleeping. Then I just lie in bed, enjoy the stillness around me and let the darkness of the night embrace me and sooth me. I was alone with my emotional pain for so many years as I grew up, that my solitude has become my greatest comforter now. I turn inwards when I need a break.

    I too listen to soothing music or distract myself by reading books, blogs or just anything I can get my hands on.

    The internet. I jump down rabbit holes on the internet, and live vicariously through the stories told by others (such as yourself) for a little while. I guess you might call it an escape.

    Sometimes, it is soothing to lie in a hot bath. Other times, being on a trail is soothing, especially when I encounter deer or some other mild creature.
