    There was a huge part of my life

    Stars (this Was Me @17/18 Years)

    Sadness is comforting,

    it is always there for me. Artists do some of their greatest works in sadness. I don't know if beautiful is the right work but it is close. Sadness let's us look at happiness differently and would there even be any happiness without sadness.

    i’ve grown to like sadness.

    It’s many diluted faces smile at me most days. As an emotion it demands to be felt, like a bird naturally jumping and flying up into the afternoon sky. Natural. Just like the wind blows through the trees giving warning that a storm will approach. The storm does come and the...

    There is.. Something about sadness.

    . Not the kind that makes you cry, but a certain kind that brings detachment.. Even when things are going pretty okay, especially when things are going okay, this type of sadness seeps in.. And you feel detached from everything and everyone.. Sadness, that is beautiful in a way...

    Sadness

    I don't know if there are beautiful things about sadness.  If I had to say something, it may be about our genuine feelings.

    I don't know what triggered this episode of

    sadness but it's different than what happened to me last year. Last year was way too overwhelming and made me cry and want to kill myself. This time around I feel sad because I miss things. People and places I know. Good and beautiful memories keep coming and they make me...
