Is it ok to be sad?

I feel bad about feeling bad. But its ok right? I shouldn’t feel bad about being depressed. That little voice in my head that tells me im not worth it goes away right?

It’s ok to be sad. It’s just a feeling, don’t give it anymore importance than that.

I read something in a book once about people feeling guilty for feeling sad or depressed when others have it so much worse. The issue is that there’s always someone that is worse off…so it made a joke about hunting down the most unfortunate, unlucky and miserable soul and then giving them and only them permission to ever feel sad. It was very funny and also showed to me how silly it was to feel bad about something like that.

It’s normal to feel sad. It happens. But it could turn into self pity which is not the best if you do it too much.

I think it’s ok to be sad. But its also important to try to help yourself feel better in little ways.

Of course it’s OK to be sad. Some days are just like that.

Just know tomorrow will be better.
