Sometimes I find that when I’m sad I need to read something sad, or see a sad movie, or hear a sad song. Doing so makes me feel fuller and perhaps less alone (although I’m not so fond of seeing others sad when I’m this way, “misery loves company” isn’t really the same thing for me in this case). Something to happy or bland just makes me feel more alienated.

Although this is less the case than it once was. I now usually put on music or read a book which is empowering or energetic, to help me get out.

I’m not sure which is better, truer, or anything. Just what I do.
