The Write Way to Relieve Sadness
Whenever you feel bored, confused, defeated, depressed, disappointed, discouraged, disgusted, downhearted, exhausted, hopeless, helpless, lonely, or unloved...write a letter to someone.
Write about all the things that are making you feel sad. Use the word or words that best describe your feelings and state specifically - when, where, and what happened that caused you to feel the way you do.
I feel ... bored, confused, defeated, depressed, disappointed, discouraged, disgusted, downhearted, exhausted, hopeless, helpless, lonely, unloved when I remember ...
Your letter does not need to be mailed to serve its purpose. In writing it, you have released your sad feelings and made room for good feelings and pleasant thoughts.
Sadness is a result of experiencing a loss - a loss of a person's love through traumatic circumstances such as death, divorce, illness, or violence; or a loss of possessions because of catastrophic disasters beyond one's control
