An Encouragement to the Reader

Sadness, as defined in Wikipedia, is an emotional pain associated with, or characterized by, feelings of disadvantage, loss, despair, grief, helplessness, disappointment and sorrow.

Feeling of emptiness, lack of worth, and purpose leads to sadness. A person experiencing sadness may become quiet withdraw themselves from others. Most people experience these negative sentiments at some point in their lives. While most recover, some end up developing chronic case of feeling of emptiness-- mental health concerns such as depression.

Based on my personal experience, it takes more than a pill to heal the system. Spirituality helped me recover from my depression. I wrote in this article, 46 inspirational quotes that can help uplift and motivate a person going through a season of sadness. The quotes summarizes encouragements and lessons I received in the past two years (2016-2018). Reflecting on theses quotes, reminded me that I am loved and that I have a purpose. I hope you, the reader, may experience the same encouragement as well.
