It’s Okay to Be Sad
We all have those days when we just don’t feel right. We feel like nothing’s going our way, we’re wasting the day, we’re doing things wrong and we just feel sad. It might be the cause of emotional exhaustion or exhaustion in general caused by stress, but we can have these days without any particular reason.
I’m here today to tell you that it’s okay to feel this way. We’re always told to be happy - “happiness is not a destination, it’s the way” etc. It is great to be happy and we should always work on being happy and appreciative in the present moment. But does happiness exist if sadness doesn’t? No, it doesn’t. We have to be sad sometimes to be able to feel happiness again and appreciate it.
There is nothing wrong with being sad. In fact, by allowing yourself to feel this way and feeling your emotions deeply, you accept your sadness, you embrace it. And that is a wonderful thing, because you embrace something that is part of you. By embracing sadness, you are paving the way for your happiness, your peace.
Always stay in the present moment. And if you are sad, than you are sad. Embrace your broken heart, feel what you need to feel. Never pretend. Never fake a smile. Sadness is just as true and beautiful as joy and we need to feel it sometimes in order to grow.
So feel it out. Sadness isn’t something that should be avoided. It is the emotion of your heart, therefore it cannot be a bad thing. Be sad if you need to be. You are not wasting your day, you are doing everything perfectly.
