Today, I am sad.

It is okay to be sad once in awhile, right?

I am always afraid to admit I am sad.  I don't get sad very often, which causes me to feel a little broken when I do.  I am afraid people will judge me.  I am afraid they will think I am less of a person.  Or say I am depressed because I was sad for one day.  Or I'll lose the credibility of my strength.  Or men will blame PMS.  I've honestly never experienced PMS or a cramp and anyone who accuses of such will have quite a wallop - that is just rude.

But today, I am sad.  It isn't the end of the world.  I am completely happy with life and so excited for the future, but will allow myself this moment.

And if you've got some hugs, I'll allow those too:-)

You've never experienced CRAMPS?? Oh man.

Sorry you are sad... but it's totally fine to be sad for a day or two.

You go and be sad for today. There's nothing wrong with that. Like Sam from Garden State says, "I look forward to a good cry. It feels pretty good." I whole heartedly agree.

Had very similar thoughts the past few days. Be sad. Then, be happy:)

I don't think there's anything wrong with being sad once in awhile. Opposition in all things, right? If you didn't feel sad you wouldn't know how truly wonderful it is to feel happy the rest of the time.

Just don't let it go on too long. I love you, Riss. Do what you need to do!
