How to deal with random sad feelings

You know those random moments when you just experience sad feelings for no obvious reason? We all have them, and it’s totally okay. It can hit us out of the blue, making everything feel heavy, and we just want to curl up and not deal with anything. It’s like a sudden wave crashing into you out of nowhere. For us girls, it’s kind of like that pre-period time when everything feels like it’s falling apart.

But it’s something we can work through together.

So, first things first, we should acknowledge that we’re feeling sad. Let’s be real with ourselves. It’s important to be honest about what we’re feeling. Sometimes we might know why we’re feeling this way, and sometimes it’s a total mystery. Either way, it’s okay.

Next, we can try to figure out what might be triggering this feeling. If you have a therapist, reaching out to them for a chat or booking a session could be really helpful. If not, like a lot of us do, you could grab a journal and jot down your thoughts and feelings. Sometimes just putting it into words can bring some clarity. And we’ll share our favorite journals right here. And honestly, if you don’t find the answer right away, that’s totally fine too.

Now, here’s the fun part. Let’s make a list of things that bring us joy. It could be something as simple as enjoying a great meal, watching our favorite show, talking to a friend, praying, or hitting the gym. Whatever it is, let’s give ourselves permission to indulge in it and spark that joy.

We’re not doing this to make the sadness magically disappear forever. We’re doing it to remind ourselves that even in tough times, we can find moments of happiness. It’s a way to reassure ourselves that eventually, things will be okay.

So, let’s stick together and remember that we’re not alone in feeling this way. We’ve got this, and we’ll get through it, one step at a time.

Remember, these feelings are just a part of being human, and it’s okay to experience them. We’re here to support each other and be kind to ourselves as we navigate through these moments.

If you feel like you need some extra support, don’t hesitate to reach out to someone you trust. It could be a friend, a family member, or anyone who makes you feel safe and understood. Sharing your sad feelings with someone else can make you feel lighter and remind you that you’re not alone.

In the midst of these feelings, it’s so important that we take care of ourselves. We want to make sure we’re getting enough rest, eating well, and staying hydrated. Engaging in activities that bring you comfort and peace can also help soothe your mind and spirit.

Lastly, as we navigate through these emotions, it’s important to remember that brighter days are ahead. It might not feel like it right now, but things will get better. We’ll find our way back to feeling like ourselves again, and in the meantime, we’re here for each other.

Remember, it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. Take care, and remember to be gentle with yourself. You’re doing great, and you’re not alone.
