All of us face sad moments in our lives at one point or the other. Life is a mixture of happy and sad moments, it is true that everybody always prays for happiness to never cease from their lives, but the inevitable sometimes lurk in when we least expected and spoils all the happiness that filled our lives.

These sad times are trying times and one would need every ounce of courage in order not to lose it, so I decided to help out in giving tips on how to get over a sad situation.




• There is no smoke without a fire they say, likewise every sad situation in life should have a root cause, sometimes you might be unfortunate that there may be a myriad of causes that would escalate to the problem. The ability to dig deeper to find out the root cause of the problem is the first step towards getting over that situation.



• After identifying the problem, the next thing to do is to try to stop the fire from burning, by this I mean, you would try to address the causes of your sadness in your best ability to be able to restore your happy state. If the cause is a misunderstanding with a co-worker or a family member, try and take out time to talk about the problem. It is best to swallow your pride and sum up enough courage and deal with the root cause. Sometimes this might be very tasking and you may need to seek assistance from a friend.

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitude of their minds.

William James



• A problem shared is a problem half solved., sometimes we might not know that the answer to our problems is just next door. If we speak to people about our problems, there might be able to offer help or refer to a person that is capable of helping. Everybody certainly has something to offer if only we are humble to ask nicely.

An open mind leaves a chance for someone to drop a worthwhile thought into it



• If you succeeded in getting over your sad situation, then you have to close the doors to what started the whole mess, you can even lock the door and throw away the keys and go on with your life. Life is truly what you make it

When faced with a similar situation in life, learn how to channel the negative vibes towards a positive one and keep maintain your emotional tone always. As a matter of fact, life itself is tough but it is rewarding –especially when you are tough on yourself.

    Sad things… If you can wait enough, you just realized, all things gone at time. Sads too. Because all the things are change, our life change, and things, whats matter now, doesnt matters later. This is also good in the life 🙂 Help us to being happy 🙂

    Although times of sadness are tough, I think it is important to remember without those times, we would not ever be able to understand what it truly means to be happy. To be sure, emotions are relative – and you cannot have one without the other. However, like you mention, you will never be able to see through the smoke to clarity without first deciphering the cause of the fire. To keep stoking it with the fuel of sadness will be of little benefit to finding the way through to the other side. Nice thought provoking post Victor – Thanks for sharing your thoughts 😉

    Indeed, that sad and happiness will always take turns. like shoes, one in front of one behind. With sadness we may learn to be strong and continue to be grateful, hoping that this will pass. Thank for sharing

    We feel that we are helpless and sad when we go through a tough time. Finding the real cause of the pain and then taking action to solve that is a practical way of dealing with a sad situation. In this time you will know your real friends. Your friends can help you if you share your problem.
