To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

“It’s okay to be sad. You don’t owe anyone a performance of being okay when you feel like you’re falling apart. It isn’t your job to smile or hide your truth to make other people feel more comfortable. If it gets awkward, let it be awkward. If people try to silence your pain by telling you to get over it and cheer up because you’re no longer fun or you’re ruining the mood, you don’t have to push away your sadness. You have to honor your feelings and trust that you don’t need anyone’s permission or approval to feel what you feel. You don’t ever have to sacrifice your self care for the sake of people who only want you around when it’s easy and comfortable. Their discomfort isn’t about you — it’s about them and their own limitations, and no matter what they think or say, you deserve to give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you feel. You’re allowed to show your feelings honestly. You’re allowed to talk about your pain and reach out for support. You’re allowed to scream and wail and cry. You’re allowed to be sad.”

    The nature of cosmos – animate & inanimate – is positivity. Life is the synonym of positivity. Negativity is death-like, close ended & dumb. Humans have originated from positivity and it becomes on them to be & I courage positivity, hope & happiness. Sadness is brief aberration and has always to be overcome by hope & efforts. It’s the universal individual responsibility of righteousness.

    There are many things in this world that we may not value unless we feel it goes off from us. Sadness helps us to understand their value in our life. It also teach us the many lesson in life.
