When I was going through the toughest time of my life, I felt sad and depressed most days. I would try to hold back those feelings because I always thought they were bad. I bottled up my emotions but one day they came out with a vengeance and wreaked havoc on my mental health!
I was so lost and confused and didn’t know what to do with my life. It was then that I decided to get a psychic reading because I wanted guidance and direction. After a few failed attempts, I finally found authentic psychics and my life hasn’t been the same since.
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 that sadness was a negative feeling that I should avoid.
I learned that I can actually use my sadness to discover things about myself and improve my life. What the the psychic taught me about sadness has had such a positive impact on my life that I thought I would share what I learned with you.
Experiencing Sadness Helps Us Learn And Grow
The psychic taught me that feeling sad actually teaches us new coping mechanisms every time we experience it. When we get upset about something, we get the chance to look within ourselves to discover the source of our sadness and why we’re feeling that way. After we figure out what we’re going through, we can then work on addressing it.
There are several ways to go about tackling our issues, such as crystal healing, journaling, meditating, talking to a friend, or talking to a psychic over the phone. When we consult a psychic, we are able to get insight into our situation.
After learning to cope with it once, we then have better tools with which to face future situations that make us sad. Essentially, being sad forces us to experience emotional growth and emotional growth 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 aren’t having 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 a feeling of happiness, but it isn’t a real happiness, it is a manufactured happiness. When we don’t deal with our sadness in a real way, we don’t get to learn how to cope with our emotions and the sadness keeps coming back over and over again.
Sure, we can keep taking medication for the rest of our lives, but they come with harmful side effects with long-term usage. This isn’t to say that medication should never be used- there are some cases where medicating is the right answer and necessary, but 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 a good thing because it forces us to look back on our life and really 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 still sad that they are gone, we’re also happy because of the memories we had with them. This allows our feelings and emotions to go through their cycle and helps 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. They give our sadness a voice and a way out. They also serve as a reminder 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 in our life. The strongest relationships are usually with those we know truly care about us and our feelings.
In order for a relationship to be truly solid and genuine, we have to know that the other person they will be there for us through the good times and the 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 kinds to have in our lives.
Being Sad Helps Us Release Negative Emotions
I learned that feeling sad is a good way to cleanse our soul. We typically cry when we’re sad, it’s the most natural and instinctual reaction to these feelings of sadness we get. Crying gives us an emotional release of everything we have bottled up inside of us.
It cleanses our body of negative emotions, such as pain, sorrow and anger. We can only start to feel better once we’ve purged our body of all these negative emotions that are weighing us down.
It’s too bad that in today’s society, crying is seen as a bad thing or as a weakness. Holding back our tears and keeping our feelings bottled up inside of ourselves 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 yourself 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 incredibly helpful.
Consulting a genuine psychic can be eye-opening and they can sense why you aren’t able to fully release your emotions and help you get to the point where you can let your feelings flow.
So, the next time you feel sad, don’t feel bad about it and 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 and we all experience it. The only time it’s a bad thing is when you don’t know how to cope with your emotions in a safe way. When you do harmful things to yourself in an effort to stop feeling the way you feel, you do damage to yourself.
Knowing the right and the wrong ways to handle your sadness is crucial to a healthy life. Learn to benefit from your pain instead of seeing it as a bad thing and letting it hurt you.
