☆  solace  慰め


Solace is a formal word, to describe the feeling of comfort that makes you feel less sad. For example, it’s common to say that you “find solace in XX”, so “I found solace in running when my father died 6 years ago.” Or “Many people find solace after losing a pet by adopting a new one soon.”

When something sad happens in your life, how do you find solace? What is your way of comforting yourself and making yourself feel better? Is it running or exercise? Or catching up with friends? Or just spending time alone and writing in a journal or reading a book? What helps you find solace?
