Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful recovering alcoholic/addict. I always talk about perception and how you need to be happy, but life isn't perfect and you will have times when you are sad. There are times in life where you should feel sad. Losing someone a friend or someone you love, or anything you cared for. But there is a difference between being sad and depression. There is also a difference between being alone and isolation. Sometimes when you are sad you just want to be alone, that is fine. You just need to make sure you don't do it forever. Life does go on. Sometimes you want to talk about it sometimes you don't, but in the end you should "vent" somehow. You could do it through music, or writing, or whatever you like to do. You can feel sad, but little by little you will feel better. Feeling sad is part of life. It is good that you are feeling too. Feeling is what I was hiding with drinking. I didn't want to feel. It's hard learning to feel again, and sometimes those feeling I don't want to feel. I want everything to be fine and dandy. But without the sad times, I would appreciate the happy times as much. So keep your head up! So have a great day!
