This may be because of the loss of a loved one or the disappointment of a missed opportunity.
Sadness hurts, sadness is difficult.
But the reason that we feel sadness is because we care.
So in a way, sadness is something to be embraced, because without the caring that caused it, our lives would not be so blessed.
We should accept this sadness and the reason for it, without letting it become an overwhelming force.
We should use it as a leaning experience because after the crushing initial sadness passes, there is a new appreciation of what we have, how precious our lives really are.
So even in the depths of our sadness, we should try to find the strength to carry on, to move forward.
Feel, move on, grow, remember.
