Sadness hurts, and we all suffer from time to time. But don’t let it pull you down. Here are some things to remember:
It’s OK to feel: Sometimes when we’re sad, we just need to cry without explanation (we may not feel entitled to do that). You have to give yourself time and do what feels right.
Time heals: Though you may feel lost and unsure of yourself, remember that tomorrow is a new day. Being around someone who cares about you can be a good thing.
Appreciation: When you’re feeling bad, it may be difficult to call upon what you’re grateful for in your life. But that practice can balance even the saddest of days.
Your pain matters: Even if you can’t identify exactly why you’re feeling down, know there is a reason. Don’t feel the need to have to justify yourself to anyone.
Channel in: Reflect on why you feel this way. Unveiling the root cause can help you work through it.
