Compromising with your love doesn't tell your heart that you are sad. Everybody is different, you, are the difference of all that you can be.
It was because your are on agrief, a loss, a low self-esteem. You should consider yourself to go to the local psychologist or psychiatrist
I am sad to hear that. You may feel this way because you are at a turning point in your life, it is also possible that you are suffering from depression.
Feelings, thoughts, and emotions are overlapping but in times of sadness we only see the overlapping areas and not the thought, etc In order to have the positive thoughts we need to practice the self help coping techniques we learn about in recovery, and take a moment to center yourself. Keep working on the foundation and soon you will be able to function in more areas of your life.
Well, sadness is a part of life - whether we like it or not. If not for sadness there will be no happiness. We feel sad maybe because we lost something or someone very important to us. And it may be hard for us to overcome it but only if we look deeper, sadness is actually something that will give us strength to move forward and the power to look back on our memories and feel stronger than before. Because if we don't feel sadness, there will be no way for others to know that we need them to be with us. In short - the joy of knowing people have your back is something that sadness gives us. :)
Often people reach a stage in life where their life feels meaningless. This is common and if there is no reason behind it can be solved with activity and change of lifestyle.
Sadness is often linked with stress, life circumstances and genetics. The reason you may feel so sad in life, could be that stress has taken a toll on you and there is a raise in cortisol(stress hormone). It could be that you are depressed and there are circumstances in your life that have taken a turn or you could have a mental illness. This is a common occurence amongst the human population, but sometimes deviates in severity(mild sadness-major depressive disorder). To put into simple terms, stress and/or depression is the reason.
Self-reflection is key. Write down a list of things that make you feel constantly frustrated, angered, or bummed out. Then, write down a list of things that you can count on to make you feel satisfied or content with your life. Do your very best to rid your life of the things on the first list, and increase the amount of time you spend with things on the second list. If necessary, talk to someone you can trust to help with reducing the things in your life that make you sad. Best of luck to you!
You feel that way because you forget to laugh. You forget to laugh at life and instead you embrace sadness.
it's diffrent for everyone and most people go through periods of depression in their life. It's all part of the journey, figuring out why and getting through it but you can do it :)
It is most probably because of the atmosphere you are breathing in, like having great inspiring friends and a beautiful lovely family.
This is a normal feeling when something sad happens in your life. It is okay to talk to others for support.
There could be multiple reasons as to why you feel sad. Just know that life is like an arrow, when you feel that you're being pulled back you're about to be launched into something AMAZING! HAng in there bud.
Usually, there is always a reason for sadness. A current event in your life, a looming cause in your past, you name it. The trigger might even be something that may not seem sadness-triggering to you. You could watch out for moments when you feel this kind of sadness and try to rehash the situation when it occured, trying to find the trigger.
well there must be be some reasons why. You just have to talk about it and let it out. We will talk about t slowly and find a solution.
feeling sad probably has a reason .. sit down .. have a pen and a paper ... right down what's bad about your life .. all of it ... then have another paprer .. right down what are the big problems you see in the 1st paper ... then try finding a solution for each one .. if you can't , ask for help from a listener
You sound like you have a lot on your plate. Have there been any recent events that have made you feel this way?
It could just be a hormonal stage in your life. It could also be because something tragic happened recently. Think about recent events in your life that might have triggered this emotion.
Because those little things you thought didn't bug you are weighing you and your happiness down. They all added up, and now everything seems worse than it really is. Identify the core issue, and piece by piece work through all the little things and get to the core. Then it'll be easier to take down whatever is hurting you most,
It can be a range of different things. From hormones to chemical imbalances, from mental illnesses to learning difficulties. The best thing you can do iso go to your gp and ask them to help you. You may be referred to a professional who can help you better
Perhaps this is the first time where you really, truly care about something. Some things are just valued by you more than others. Thus, theorectically, when this thing you value changes due to unpredictable life circumstances, you would express a lot of sadness from this loss.
Everyone feels this way for many different reasons, it's important to evaluate yourself in these situations.
Happines and sadness are part of our life, we should try to explore us more in order to know and balance these both elements
It is very normal to feel sad in life. There are several factors, but being a normal human being that you are, it's a completely normal feeling :)
Sadness can be affected by many reasons. Situational isn't technically one but it is to me. Thats the most difficult to get past for me. Other depressive character flaws need help through experts because it typically doesn't just go away.
It's human nature. Please remember that there WILL be better days no matter how rough times are, the sadness will go away.
Sadness can come from any number of things such as not enough protein in your diet, too much or not enough sugar, dehydration. If you have other symptoms you should see your doctor. Sometimes people experience great sadness on or about the anniversary of something from their past, like the death of a loved one, a bad experience but usually it disappears once you realize what it is. Did you get turned down for something lately that you said you didn't really care about? It could be that subconsciously you did care for some reason such as not getting promoted instead of the person who did, you didn't get to go on a trip you would have appreciated. Recognizing what is bothering you can help you let it go and move on in peace.
I have parts of me that no one knows. I constantly beat myself up. I don't do enough, I can't do it right, I can't except complements because no matter what I don't think it's true.
I am really sorry that you feel really sad. There really isn't a right answer I can give you for why you feel so sad. Is there something in your current life that has changed? Are you missing someone? Is it you are lonely? Maybe these questions can be a start for you maybe to think a bit. Good luck and don't be so hard on yourself.
There are usually reasons what you feel this way. these reasons are not always easy to understand because they might come from what is happening in your life now, or they might come from the past. That is why one usually needs to get some input from a support group or a therapist to begin to understand what is happening and what it is happening now.
