Ignoring Sadness Won't Make It Go Away..

as they always say, "it is the emotionally intelligent individual who recognizes those emotions and doesn't ignore them."  when i'm feeling sad, i normally listen to sad songs.. acknowledge the emotion and feel it!

exactly. i just let it pass. sometimes it's good for you to talk about it.

I know the feeling -- so to speak. Sometimes you just have to let those feelings come, and music can be good means of experiencing it. It's much better than suppressing those feelings.

Sometimes it gets the crying over faster. If you put a more hopful one on after.

I totally agree. However, indulging and encouraging that negative emotion to linger on is also healthy. One must find balance. =)
