Are you sad ?

Are yu sad ?

Some days are just bad days,that’s all.You have to experience sadness to know happiness,and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day,that’s just the way it is !  Dita Von Teese     

“It is popularly believed that sadness is due to certain things that happens to us. The cause of sadness is often traced to misfortune,hardship or humiliation

In truth all sadness is from within.

Sadness is the result of our inner attitude towards outer happenings”.

Dada J P Vaswani

The reasons for sadness are many. And all of you know.

Reaction to sadness varies from person to person and depends on how sensitive the person is.

Sadness can break the person completely and even push into suicidal tendencies.

Some cry to get relief,some indulge in self harming,some manage the show by fake smile,but still many are unable to come out of the feelings.

We all should realise that nothing is permanent in this life. Change is the way of life.

Whether it is sadness or happiness it won’t last forever and comes alternatively and this is nature’s law. Every thing changes over the time and time is the greatest healer!

Whatever may be the reason for sadness…never keep the emotions inside. Remember it’s like a time bomb.

What is the solution ?

Yes solution available.

A sad person needs another person who understands him/her 100%

The sad person just needs this person on whom he/she can lean on and cry their hearts out. Believe me the relief is instant !

Dear friends,please share your thoughts.

Thank you

Sadness is a medium for us to become better people no doubt about it, without a human falling on their face they don’t learn how to appreciate things, apparently we all learn it the hard way, sadness is a medium for us to grow and appreciate our beautiful gifted life , it helps you to mold yourself into a better person and make you strong for the many more impediments life is going to put you in!

      • This is great for me….thank you!!! I really appreciate and respect you!!!

        Here is the story!! Hava a nice afternoon my friend!!

        Imagine a dark room and there are many including ‘you’ sitting around a large round table. It is pitch dark and none in the room has ever ‘seen’ anything because there never has been any light, EVER! Everyone has a pouch- a satin bag like the ones the jewellers use. Since you cannot SEE anything, you thoroughly examine it and finally untie it. As you put your hand inside it, you say “ouch…” as something cut your finger and it hurts. So you tie the bag up again. Time seems to hang as there is nothing to do. Then you strike a conversation with the person sitting next to you.

        “I have a pouch. Do you also have one?”, you ask the person.

        “Yes I do.”

        “May I have it for a moment..?”

        “By all means..”

        He hands over his pouch to you and you feel it with your fingers. (Mind you, you cannot see anything!) The pouch is soft to touch, just like yours and then you gently open it, this time careful that the contents do not pierce your fingers. But you need not have bothered, for it was pleasant to feel the smooth, rounded surface of the objects inside the pouch.

        You are pleasantly surprised. “Why did I get such sharp needle like objects and my neighbour such smooth ones, you wonder.” You slowly gather courage and ask him,” Can I keep your pouch? You can have mine?”, concealing the fact that they may hurt his fingers.

        But to your surprise, your neighbour agrees and you end up exchanging the pouches. You start enjoying playing with the smooth objects.

        And then,,,,suddenly, there is LIGHT. You close your eyes not being able to take its brilliance, never having seen light. After a while of squinting and getting accustomed to it, you open your eyes…..you see the people around you and greet each other. Then you look at the neighbour who exchanged the pouch without any questions and thank him. In response, he smiles and merely shrugs. He looked happy.

        Then you look at the contents of the pouch you had ‘acquired’ from your neighbour. They were smooth, alright; but they were just smooth pebbles. You then wonder what it was that cut his fingers in the earlier pouch and turn to your neighbour.

        “What is in your pouch?”

        He smiles and hands over the pouch to you. You hold up the pieces of sharp objects against the light and see a dazzling light refracted through it. You show it to your neighbour who watches it with still the same smile.

        You realise that you have exchanged your beautiful diamonds for the worthless pebbles. You have a sudden desire to get back what you had exchanged with the neighbour. With a sheepish grin you ask him, “Excuse me, you don’t seem to be very impressed with the contents of the pouch I gave you. In that case, can we exchange them again?”

        To your surprise, he says, “By all means”, the smile still on his lips.

        After getting back the ‘diamonds’ and patting yourselves on the back for the clever deal you engaged in with the neighbour, you bask in the ‘happiness’ caused by the possession. But after a while, a sense of guilt possesses you and you turn to the neighbour, who is still smiling.

        “What made you give up the pouch even after knowing that they were brilliant diamonds?”

        The man continued to smile and answered,”You had it for a while and then me. But all the while in the darkness, it had no worth. Then came the light and everything changed because of the LIGHT. I realise it is more important to focus on the LIGHT- the SOURCE than the object”, still smiling.

        If you were to give away the pouch of precious diamonds at that moment, there would not be a tinge of sadness. On the other hand, instead, there would be only happiness at having discovered a higher truth.

        FROM THEN ON YOU OPEN YOURSELVES UP TO A NEW KIND OF HAPPINESS THAT WILL NEVER MAKE YOU SAD AGAIN!
