Do you read any books that are on the sad, even depressing side? Do you find you gravitate towards that genre when something is going wrong in your life? Does it help you cope better? Not feel so alone maybe?
When I was younger, it was easier to read depressing books as we kids then teens tend to go through so many ups & downs & it was nice hearing we were not alone. As an adult however, similar to watching depressing movies, they just make it worse for me.
 
I do not remotely read depressing stories. No real interest in them and the world can sometimes be worse enough.
 
The only thing I read that was sad was Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events". But I think that series was suppose to be sad, that was the whole point.
