I’m feeling kind of down tonight for no reason in particular. I miss my friends and all the fun we used to have I guess. Feeling a bit lonely maybe.
When I used to feel down it seemed like the world was ending and if there wasn’t a clear reason I’d search for one. But in the past couple years I’ve come to realize that some days we feel inexplicably happy and some days we feel sad and often we are somewhere in between. And that’s okay. That’s life.
I guess I used to think that there was happily ever after and you’d never feel sad again but that isn’t how life works. Life is what you make of it. Its okay to feel sad sometimes; it just means you’re human and you’re living and I’ve learned to be thankful for every moment I’ve been given here on this earth (even sad ones!). Life is precious and someone out there would give anything just to be able to breathe and live and feel something.
Growing up we’re taught we need to fix things. That there is always a cause; a reason you feel sad. Sometimes the reason is as simple as needing sleep, or being hungry, or not listening to enough music, or just hormones. And you don’t always need to “fix” it.
It’s perfectly okay to feel sad or lonely sometimes. You can even feel happy about feeling sad. After all if we never felt sad, feeling happy wouldn’t feel so great 🙂
