Sad Without Rationale

I hate when the feelings of sadness creep in and I can’t figure out where the sadness originated. There is no valid reason for my dad mood. I was even asked if I were sad tonight and I didn’t know how to answer. For some reason it happens and it makes no sense.

I hate my emotions.

  1. Emotions suck sometimes. I am no good at hiding mine. I try to dwell in each emotion and that helps it pass by for me. I hope tomorrow is a brighter day for you, honey.

  2. I’ve had a lot of that in my sobriety so far; much more pronounced than it was when I was drinking. maybe that’s because I was always on a more consistent low when I drank. But, I’ve been trying to accept the sadness for what it is, and not fight against it as best I can. It sucks, but there are definitely better days ahead 🙂

    1. Thank you. I’m always intrigued by the concept of logic versus feelings; on the one hand I know it will change, but on the other hand it doesn’t feel like it will change.
      It is just today that I will focus on.


  3. It could be something underlying we are sometimes not even fully aware of and I tried to make sense of it before as well. No luck and it’s still a mystery as it creeps in from one moment to the next. You are not alone my friend and I hope at least it can give you some comfort.
    Try to hunk of something funny, something you hold dear to your heart that can pull you out. And if that still doesn’t work, sometimes it is a good cry that helps relieve some tension and brings relief. Much love and hugs for you ❤️

      1. I’ve fought anxiety my whole life. Meds help a lot, but, some days are just hard. Now with the breast cancer I think it’s sort of self-protection to not go to the worry too much. At first I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to stop crying if I started, but now I really don’t feel any different than a lot of people. So many have so much worse to deal with. Come with me, I’ll hold your hand, I promise! 🙂

  4. When I quit drinking, I had been taking a vacation from my feelings for a few years. So removing the alcohol allowed all the feelings to show up at once. It was a little overwhelming but, in time and working with another person that had been through it, it got better in time.

  5. we are very complex beings and the more sensitive one is the more we struggle with. talk to yourself the sad may not even coming from inside but from somewhere outside. you have struggles with soberiety for a reason …. have you discovered that answer. love yourself, be easy on yourself and discover the answers. sometimes just the knowing can unleash healing 😊
