Sometimes being an unhappy person doesn’t always mean you’re sad all the time. You can be happy whenever you arrive at school, you can laugh with people or be proud of something you made but when you come home you can just break down crying because you feel sad, or you feel like something’s missing. There are different states of being sad. For example; sad for a short time. That could be because your cat died. It doesn’t do that much to you because you never really liked it, but still you feel a little bit sad because you don’t get that warm welcome you used to get from that little animal whenever you come home.
People can be sad for many reasons. Sometimes there are reasons you’ll never understand. For example; the tree in my backyard was cut down when I was 14. I can imagine no one will understand why I could be sad about it. Little do they know, that tree was there since I was born. That tree was there when I made new friends, that that tree was there when I got back from my first bike ride, that tree was there when I came back from my first day of kindergarten, that tree was there when I was scared to go to high school, that tree was there when I got my dog, that tree was there when I told my best friend she was always going to be my best friend, that tree was there when I got my first kiss, that tree was there when my dog died and that tree was just there. It just was, always, there. Suddenly it’s gone, suddenly you look different to your garden just because that tree which used to be there isn’t anymore. That’s a reason you could be sad. Also a reason is losing someone. Maybe you didn’t really knew someone but you always saw him or her near your house, till they moved. But also maybe there was someone graved in your heart who turned out to be different than you thought they were. No matter how much you try to turn back time, it won’t. That could be a reason to be sad. Maybe someone you loved very much passed away. Maybe even a pet. You can stay sad for days, weeks or even months. Sometimes you can be sad for years.
The only type of being sad I really hate is when you can’t enjoy things, no matter how fun they are. You just can’t. You don’t even feel like enjoying things. You don’t want it to be your birthday, you don’t want to get presents, you don’t want it to be christmas, you don’t want it to be snowy outside. When you think like that long enough chances are big you won’t get out of that thought even though you think it is just a phase. Don’t forget you’re young. Don’t forget that every second you waste on being sad, no matter how reasonable it is to be sad, goes off your future. “I don’t have a future, I want things that will never happen.” Remember: you’re the only one keeping yourself from your dreams. If you want to go to Ibiza, go. Work your ass off, save money, tell your best friend that they can come, and go. Travel the world, travel all you want. Your time is whenever you decide it is. Go after your dreams, go after that girl/boy you liked for so long, go after that job that you were afraid of taken, go after that cooking course you’ve wanted for so long, eat that donut and enjoy it, look around and see how beautiful the world can be. Every second you waste on being sad goes off your future.
