Whenever I'm sad, I tend to do stuff that make me forget this sadness; I DON'T WANT TO BE SAD - I WANT TO LIVE A LIE. But yeah, that's the main idea. Even if it means taking the neighbor's dog for a walk, which I once did for this reason.
I honestly think I'm starting to head down this road right now. I don't deal with it well. Little things, whether directed towards me or not, bother me easily and I overreact to all of it. I don't talk to anyone, I don't eat as much as normal, and I play a lot of games to distract myself from whatever is bothering me, which sometimes doesn't even work. Talking to close friends really helps too, but I think I shouldn't rely on them all the time because they're starting to have to be my crutch, and I don't want them to feel like that. But at the same time, if I go through this kind of stuff alone, I don't want to think about what I'd do.
Point is, I don't deal well with sadness or depression. Little to nothing seems to make me feel better or happy when I'm really upset.

When I'm depressed I always try to think of that saying "Look to the sky, when you're about to cry." I look to the sky and think about what's depressing me and is it really worth being sad over it?
and some other things that cheer me up is Watching either Harry Hill's TV Burp or Listening to Queen or there is the fourth option I use, I talk to my Mum about it and well, it kind of get's rid of my depression because she makes me happy.
I distract myself with anything I can think of. Typically, it'll be video games or my writing, sometimes the computer, it all depends on what I want to do. I realize that this is what I always do, but honestly, just keeping things normal helps.
If it's late enough, I just go to bed; I find that being tired just amplifies my depression, and that I'll feel better the next day.
