I Am Sad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,023 People

    I try my hardest to be a positive person

    and to have positive thoughts but I just can't. The sadness that is inside me seems to never go away. Bad memories over empower the good ones and they swarm my mind, especially at night. I feel like it's draining the life out of me.

    Have you ever had one of those days

    where you just felt extremely sad? You see that you are not where you are in your life and realize that you really haven't accomplished anything. You look at all these people smiling, seemingly enjoying their careers or having a good time with friends and you wonder when will...

    It saddens me to see

    so many people out there who live a horrible life, if I only I could change things for all of you I would in a blink of an eye. No one deserves to suffer and no one has the right to inflict pain on other people. So all those people out there who are facing life with hardships...

    I find myself in a very unfamiliar position.Instead of being the strong one...I'm the weak one. Which would be okay...if it wasn't all the damn time over the past week. I can find a bit of solace for maybe an hour or two...but then the overwhelming feeling of what has transpired...

    Endless Tears

      To cry alone.  It is better then the rain.   At least then no one can see my hurt.   It seems the cold of winter comes through to the center of my soul so often.   It comes more then once a year.     The sadness in my heart; it is...

    I am sad for me. And I am sad for you, too. I am sad that the earth is hurting, and so are her people. I am sad that corporations and government are synonymous. I am sad that millions of people have nothing to eat. I am sad that trees are being cut down every second. I am sad...

    I'm Sorry My Sadness Makes You Uncomfortable

    I'm not "fine". I'm not even okay and I'm certainly not good. What's worse is that I haven't felt that I have the right to feel anything less than "okay". I have felt as if I don't have the right to feel sad. I have been shamed for feeling sad. I have been invalidated in such...

    The Weight Of Sadness

    I'm sad. Not the sit around feeling sorry for yourself sad. Not the self-pity type of sad. Not the cry-all-the-time sad. Not even the on-the-verge-of-tears sad. Nor the I-forgot-how-to-laugh-and-smile sad It's not the sad that breaks your heart, for there is nothing left to break...

    So many children, regardless of age,

    are being abused by their parents and there is nothing we can do about it. I wish I could save everyone of them and show them what true love looks like.

    I waited for you for so long. I watched my phone, every night, waiting on a phone call that somewhere in the back of my mind I knew Iā€™d never get. I just wanted to hear you say that you were sorry for what you did, and that maybe you wanted to get back together. I hoped and...
