Feeling any of that? Sadness, or any of the above emotions, incapacitate you from having a good time and enjoying your life! It stops you from being happy. Sadness is a negative emotion in its purest form, and it is one that hits most of us, and also hits us the most. The best way to get rid of sadness is to find yourself some company. Friends, family-members, even pets for that matter. It is a fact that animals have emotions. My German shepherd Jerry (May his soul rest in peace) had this uncanny ability to know exactly when I was feeling sad. He would then roll himself into my blanket and fake like he was caught in it and would try to wriggle himself out. He would keep peeping out of the blanket to see if I were smiling or not, and he would keep doing it till I did! And the moment I smiled, he would come and jump all over me. Do things that you love doing, things that make you happy. Make yourself some hot chocolate, or a chocolate shake, read a book, listen to music, watch funny movies, and let the tears flow if they want to. Crying is like a therapy; I simply cannot understand why people find it so hard to cry. You shouldn’t block those tears. Let them come out. Cry till you can cry no more, and promise yourself that you will never cry about the same thing again.
My Mantra – Look in the mirror and kiss your reflection. As downright ridiculous as that sounds, it actually lifts your spirits!
