Feeling sadness running throughout the body is natural. Troubling the mind and struggling to get out. However, many of us persist in repressing and hiding what we feel, in a vain worry that disappears without a trace. This worsens the situation and does not allow us to free ourselves from sadness, on the contrary it allows it to take root in our thoughts, which it begins to feed on.
Society has taught us to act in an ideal way. So ideal that we can consider it artificial. We try to move in the emotional field between very narrow boundaries. Laughter, for example, is a great sign of cheerfulness, but it can become annoying and unwanted when it takes on jarring tones or shows poor containment, either on purpose or through lack of self-control.
If it occurs with a positive emotion, all negative ones, such as crying or being depressed, are just avoided. This containment is brought to such a point that not even in the heat of our home, in total solitude, we allow ourselves to give free rein to what torments us. We are afraid that the mantra that our parents used to repeat to us when we were little will come true: to repeat outside what we do at home.
Sadness can appear for several reasons: a dismissal, a love breakup, a huge loss of money, or even an unexpected illness.
