Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Natural causes for sadness

Sadness and sad quotes is the topic of the hub. In the first part I am going to deal with the subject of sadness and in the second I am going to give you some quotations on the topic by unknown authors.

I am all for positive thinking and positive emotions. However, I am also very much against artificiality and shallowness that the subject is often saturated with. There are definite causes for you to sometimes feel sad. You are not a robot and you don’t have to smile all the time, especially if you don’t feel like it inside, or some tragedy happened in your family.

Do not fight the feeling

It is also ok to feel sad for a short period of time when you are striving for something and cannot see the positive outcome yet. Things happen, we get tired. We are humans. The world we live in is full of everything; both good and bad. You should not concentrate on the bad, that’s why you could experience ten times more positive emotions than the negative ones. Injustice and tragedies make us experience sorrow. You should not fight that. Take a little time to be alone and recover from these things, but not too much time. Trying suppressing the feeling can only deepen your problems, for it has to go away in a natural way.

When the state becomes a problem

When the state of sadness becomes your daily companion, that’s where real problems start. It can turn to depression and nobody of us wants that. Hopelessness and pessimism should never be on your mind. You should not set a day to spend alone being pessimistic or depressed. No, you don’t do that to solve any problem. Most people do not try to look to the future and see it bright. They just look at what they have now and are not able to cope with it.

See better times in your imagination and sadness will go away

Hope for better times see them with your eyes of imagination and you will start seeing changes coming and sadness, as well as depression going away bit by bit. If you have serious problems with depression I would recommend consulting a specialist, but do not forget to cherish hope and spend time for visualizing positive outcome of your situation. By doing that, you will start attracting positive changes to your life. Remember, when you learn how to think positive thoughts you will start feeling differently, for positive thoughts bring light and positive feelings.

Some tips how to deal with the state

So, when sadness comes you can tell yourself that it is temporary and there will be a better day tomorrow. You can also tell yourself that there have been worse situations and days in your life. You can even compare yourself with somebody who is in much worse situation. We very often increase our problems when we become self centered and think that our problems are the biggest in the world. They are not! There are six billion people in the world today. Millions do not have what to eat, millions are terminally ill, millions have lost their members of family recently, millions have no money at all. Is your situation like that? I hope not. Even if it is you can comfort yourself with the fact that you are not alone with such kind of problem.

I would also want to encourage you to read stories about people who were in similar desperate situations as you are and how they coped with it. I know that lots of people do not cope and stay in their troubles. However, there a lot of those who do cope with their sorrows and sadness. Follow the latter to see how they did it. This will help you to deal with your problems. God bless you.

Quotes by unknown authors

And now some sad quotes from unknown authors.

“I do not know why my soul is sorrowful, I do not know what has enslaved me, but it is unlovable to live without you, I do not have my world without you…”

“We will part and never meet again, but it is not a secret that I liked you. Maybe I loved you too much and thought about you days and nights. Love, it sounds so sweet, but my heart is empty. You came to my life but for a very short time and disappeared like a shadow in the dark. It is not a secret that I love you. Maybe you did not like my name or my sad laughter. Maybe my heart would not know how to beat for you”.

“What are you asking for? You ask me not to be sad? Why are you searching for something that disappeared long time ago? You did not allow me to love you and now somehow you came back again…”

“I tore my heart apart myself because I wanted to give half of it to you… I loved, waited and dreamed. And I was left without you just as I expected”.

“I believed in kisses and words, I believed in love there and then, but I could never believe that I would be so bitterly deceived”.

“This dream was inside of me. It helped me to live, dream and love you. It is gone now…”

“Let me touch your lips for the last time, let me whisper your name; let me give you the last opportunity which will cause me pain just by remembering it”

“Do not write messages anymore… do not trouble your hands… do not call me by name…I am no longer yours…”

“That’s it… I have lost you… There won’t be anything else. You went away, hurt me and went away without saying goodbye. You left pain and tears, wounds in the heart. I gave you love and warmth, so why did you leave me? I gave you my heart…and as I see it was too little for you”

“I do not feel sorrowful that love is perishing; I do not feel sorrowful that paths are separating, but it is a pity that I love you and you did not understand this love…”

“Do you love me? I am not asking if you will love me? Nobody knows. In the times of my biggest pain I shall live by the hope of your love”.

“When tears fill blue eyes and nobody will say that my love will never come back and the world will remain in the past till the tear will drown in the deep”.

“Many tears have been shed… many hot thoughts…what is left are the words without letters…”

“Do you want to know why I envy you? One of the reasons is that I fear. I am terribly scared that you will kiss me. I am scared that you will say “I love you”, but not to me. I am afraid of being joyful and sorrowful, but not together with you. I am afraid that you can hold by the hand, but not me. I am afraid to see you in somebody else’s embrace. I am afraid that your loving words will be said but not to me. I am afraid, because you are too precious to me”.

“Forgive me that I loved you, forgive me that I disturbed you, forgive me that I believed you and only today I understood everything…”

“Tender features of your face, warmth of your hands, your thoughts… Your words…they are all one in me…”

“Oh, those long nights without the moon, the sky is full of clouds, but I never believed that it will be so difficult without you”.

“Why should we love if love is so painful! Why should we love if love is a mere suffering! Why should I feel this passionate feeling if it only causes me to weep in the night!”

The end

I hope the quotes and my message about sadness was useful. I wish you to have joy as often as you can and be sorrowful as rarely as possible. Always remember that you are not the only one that are going through difficult times and try to find comfort. All people have their “valley experience” when they are down and there seems to be no sun in the sky. It is. Only believe it.
