When going through the most difficult time of my life, I felt sad and depressed most days. I’d try to hold back those feelings because I always thought they were negative.
I bottled up my emotions, but one day they came out with a vengeance and wreaked havoc on my mental health! I was lost, confused, and didn’t know what to do with my life. A good friend told me about her experience with psychics, so I decided to get a psychic reading.
I was desperate for guidance and direction. After a few failed attempts, I finally found authentic psychics, and my life hasn’t been the same. They gave me so much insight and helped me turn my life around for the better.
During one of my readings, the psychic and I talked about emotions, bottling up feelings, and experiencing sadness. They taught me that I was mistaken in thinking sadness was a negative feeling I should avoid.
I learned that I could actually use my sadness to discover things about myself and improve my life. What the psychic taught me about sadness has positively impacted my life, so I wanted to share what I learned with you.
Experiencing Sadness Helps Us Learn And Grow
The psychic taught me that feeling sad teaches us new coping mechanisms every time we experience it. When we get upset about something, we have the opportunity to look within ourselves to discover the source of our sadness.
After we figure out what we’re going through, we can work on addressing it. There are several ways to tackle our issues, like crystal healing, journaling, meditating, talking to a friend, or chatting with a psychic. When we consult a psychic, we can get insight into our situation.
After learning to cope with it once, we have better tools to face future upsetting situations. Essentially, being sad forces us to experience emotional growth, and emotional development helps us in every aspect of our lives.
When we grow emotionally, we become better people because we’re able to learn from our mistakes, let go of things that are bad for us, be better partners in our relationships, recognize when we are wrong, and so much more.
One big issue we face in the world today is the use of drugs and medication to mask our sadness. People don’t have to look within themselves anymore to fix their sadness, thanks to the rising popularity of chemicals and antidepressants.
Too many people turn to these pills to achieve happiness, but it isn’t real happiness; it’s imitation happiness. When we don’t deal with our sadness naturally, we don’t get to learn how to cope with our emotions. The sadness keeps coming back over and over again.
Sure, we can keep taking medication for the rest of our lives, but long-term usage has harmful side effects. I’m not saying that you should never use medication- there are some cases where medicating is medically necessary. However, it shouldn’t be something we automatically reach for every time we’re sad.
Feeling Sad Can Make Us Reflect On The Good Times
The psychic also taught me that being sad can be good because it forces us to reflect on our lives and think long and hard about it. Doing this usually brings back memories of when we were happy and when life was good.
When we remember the good times and how we used to feel, we can see our sadness in a different light and with new eyes, which helps us handle it better.
For example, when we lose a loved one, we usually remember and think about all the good times we had together. The funny times, the scary times, the sad times we experienced.
Although we’re sad they’re gone, we’re also happy because of our memories with them. These memories allow our feelings and emotions to go through their cycle and help us manage our sadness.
Coping With Sadness Can Strengthen Our Bonds
I learned during the reading that experiencing sadness brings us closer to the people in our lives. When people around us see our sadness or know that we’re going through a hard time, they naturally want to make us feel better if they care about us.
When we’re sad in their company, they might give us a shoulder to cry on or give us a big, spirit-lifting, and comforting hug. They might talk to us and help us see things from a different perspective that eases our sadness.
The comfort these actions provide validates our sadness and gives our sorrow a voice and a way out. They also remind us that we have people in our life who love and support us. It’s hard not to create or strengthen a bond with those who come to our aid or are there for us when we’re going through a tough time.
The most powerful relationships are usually with those we know genuinely care about us and our feelings. For a relationship to be truly solid and genuine, we must know that the other person will be there for us through the good and bad times.
Being sad and vulnerable near our friends and seeing how they are there for us is a great way to form a long-lasting relationship. Relationships that can stand the tests of time are the best to have in our lives.
Being Sad Helps Us Release Negative Emotions
I learned that feeling sad is a good way to cleanse our souls. We typically cry when we’re unhappy, it’s the most natural and instinctual reaction to feeling sad. Crying gives us an emotional release of everything bottled up inside.
It cleanses our bodies of negative emotions, like pain, sorrow, and anger. We can only start to feel better once we’ve purged ourselves of these negative emotions weighing us down.
It’s a shame today’s society views crying as a bad thing or a weakness. Holding back our tears and bottling our feelings prevents us from healing. Having an emotional release, which is what crying is, allows us to work through our sadness.
If you find yourself having a hard time letting go enough to have a good cry or feel like you’re unable to release your emotions for whatever reason, an online psychic reading can be beneficial.
Consulting a genuine psychic can be eye-opening. They can sense why you can’t fully release your emotions and help you get to the point where you can unleash your feelings.
So, next time you feel sad, don’t feel bad about it or try to make the feeling go away. It’s perfectly okay for there to be times when you feel blue. Remind yourself that being sad actually has some benefits for your soul.
It’s a healthy emotion to feel that everyone experiences. The only time it’s bad is when you don’t know how to cope with it safely. When you do harmful things to yourself to stop feeling the way you’re feeling, you cause damage to yourself.
Knowing the right and wrong ways to handle your sadness is crucial to a healthy life. Learn to benefit from your pain instead of seeing it as bad and letting it hurt you.
