By feeding your mind with positive thoughts and when the negative ones that make you sad pop up, conquer them with better thoughts like reminding yourself that the devil is a liar trying to steal your joy and that better days are ahead and you're lucky to be alive to witness those days.
You can try this method, it works! First, close your eyes and try to see yourself from the outside. What do you see? A human being who feel sadness knows that something is hurting. It's a sign the people in question recognises that the world is far from perfect and wants to escape sadness. Accept your sadness as a clever and sensible way to be in the world and search for the words you would say to someone you love and admire to solace them from this hurt. Once you've accepted and gave perspective to this sadness that you feel, ask yourself: since how long do I feel sad like this? Close your eyes, breathe slowly and let the thoughts come. You can write them down once it is done. Does it come from so long ago you can't remember? Or is it related to something that happened more or less recently? You'll have the shape of it. Once again, accept the fact that this sadness is a gift from your perceiving system to make you grow. There is way more freedom and love that you see. Don't give up, it's just the beginning of the journey. What you have written or thought you can tell your listener therapist or friends, or trust yourself and go deeper in your reflection alone. You can also search for the self help guides here if something seems to relate to what you feel. With much love, a smile and encouragements.
