Have You Ever Been

Have you ever been so sad about something that you start crying just in the midst of doing some tiny, everyday thing? Even when there’s people around?

Because you can’t hold in your sadness anymore. And then when some looks at you, you automatically avoid eye contact and stop crying and continue to act like everything is normal. You go back to doing your everyday thing, while your heart is breaking inside your chest. And you just know if you looked anyone in the eye in that exact moment, you would lose it. So instead of breaking down, you say something mean as a defence mechanism, to show everyone that you are strong and nothing is eating you alive.

Even though it’s the only thing running through your head, every second of everyday. But you couldn’t share it with anyone because no one has a clue of the pain you’re going through, and no one ever will.

  1. Yes, I definitely have had this during some difficult times in life. A couple of those times seemed to last forever, but they eventually went away. All is temporary here. These painful times are another thing that gives us compassion. It’s important to be gentle with yourself during times like those. Don’t ignore it or stuff it away. Acknowledge the sadness and give yourself compassion as you would anyone else who was sad. Even if you have to say “no” to someone else to take care of you. Doing so will help the heartache to pass through a little quicker.

    • Thank you for such a thoughtful message. “The desire for a more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.” wrote Mark Manson in his Bestselling book
