Just say hi to them and smile, and maybe compliment them on something they're wearing or their hair if they've got a new hairstyle. People like to be acknowledged by their neighbors. I wouldn't know about poems or sayings or stuff like that but I try to at least say hello, and if I know them well enough, compliment them on something if I think it makes 'em look good.

Want to go out for dinner?
It wasn't your fault.
I forgive you.

Don't worry, everything will work out.
I bought you something......

Sometimes I just smile at them. IF you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours. Sometimes, I just try to tune in to what is bothering the person. Do you need help with that door? I just saw a commercial about a religious record "God will find a way when there seems to be no way." "Let go and let God" is another uplifting saying.

While working last night(in my own home now, yea!), a very sweet elderly woman told me at the end of the call to 'be safe out there'... It was so sincere and sweet, I almost started crying.. These hormones are pretty disruptive  * wink * .

Sounds like when I try to soothe sad or slightly depressed people...is like...oh,it's normal,who wouldn't be depressed...blah blah...

I think that people bouncing around happily are dangerous to someone who is feeling bad.If instead you make clear that sometimes you feel this way too,that there's no much solution but that you UNDERSTAND...that's soothing.
Like when you listen to sad music,if you're sad is better than happy music.

Just a smile will usually works but a compliment helps too. Or a little flirting can cheer someone up I think.

One time when I was in primary school, a girl I didn't like much had found out while at school that her mum had died. So I went over to her because I had felt really sorry for her and no-one was comforting her.

I told her about this time when this native bird chick had fallen out of it's nest that we found when we all got home. I wanted to keep it and Mum and Dad had without hesitation let me look after it. I didn't know then that it was dying from the fall. Maybe I was naive, or just maybe I didn't want to believe it but Mum and Dad didn't want to break my heart and let me look after the bird. So I looked after this bird which I called colours because it was brightly adorned until it died an hour and a half later. I was crushed.

I still tell everybody this story that loses someone you love.

I hope you all keep this story in mind when somebody you love dies...

I guess that's an option. Meant however do something with your life, as in meaningful.

Well I know a lot of people (myself included) that would get extremely depressed if you said something like this while they are sad.
Frogbrains
(reply to dora) posted 20-Oct-2002 4:02am  
people get depressed and sad 'cause they're wimps and feeling sorry for themselves. If you can't keep yourself happy and motivated without uplifting words from others then maybe you should consider the suicide option.

(reply to Frogbrains) posted 20-Oct-2002 4:33am  
People get depressed because they are ill,just like people who have cancer or some other illness.

I just hope you're uneducated about the subject,because depression is a very serious illness that takes lots of lives away and makes some other (not only the the depressed life,but the life of those around him as well) unbearable.

Your comment is very offensive to anybody who has this problem or someone near them having this problem.
