Release Your Sadness

It’s ok to cry – in fact crying is a great way to release some of your sadness.

So, pick a time when no one is around and let yourself be sad.  And let it be ok to really feel sorry for yourself.  I think we all hold these feelings inwards when in fact they should be expressed.

You need to take the time to understand your grief and have compassion for yourself.  Allow yourself the grace of grieving, as you would allow for someone else.

Keep to your time limit,  it is a safe place to release your emotions and yet the conscious mind will know that this concentrated sadness is only for a time.

One of the most common emotional diseases of this century is caused when normal grief turns into depression because sadness was not released.

Discover your own unique truth by letting your sadness have its time.

    Thank you for this post, Mary…..it was very timely for what I’ve been going through personally for a while. As the 6th anniversary of my husband’s death is quickly approaching, guess I needed this assurance that it’s ok…:-)

    You are welcome – I’m also 6 years without my husband but the sadness still has it’s time. Take care, Mary Francis

    I too have just passed the 6 year mark since my husband passed away. This Autumn is worse than the others…both my grown children have left home now, and after a few years of looking around for a possible “special someone”, I now have no expectation of re-marrying…I’m looking at all the years left without Tim, and I am sad.

    Thank you for your website. My husband of 30 years passed away just over a year ago. Finding myself alone on New Year’s eve, I spent some time howling into my pillow. Now I can feel that it was cathartic and served a purpose.
