I am bored lonely and depressed is an emotion, mostly triggered by a sad memory. People who join meetup. Watch a chick-flick, or a super hero movie—anything but a tear jerker, really —and grab lots of candy and popcorn.

Even a goldfish or pretty parrot can do wonders for your mood. Would you ask a doctor for a prescription before they check your symptoms? Do your friends make you feel lonely?

Is it your work or surroundings, perhaps? The cause of your loneliness will clue you in on the appropriate solution. Read a good novel instead.

Losing yourself in a good story or identifying with a powerful character will boost your confidence and fill you with a sense of adventure. Where do good ideas come from? In the shower, right?
