If someone close to you is feeling sad it can be disheartening. There’s nothing worse than seeing a friend or a loved one in pain and feeling down.
In life, there will be peaks and valleys, when a person is in a prolonged valley life can be particularly challenging. We all experience times in our life when things don’t work out as planned to leave us feeling down in the dumps.
It is important to remember when you are feeling sad is that the challenging times are not permanent, even if they may feel so at the time. When you overcome the obstacle you are currently facing you will stretch as a person and be able to take on future challenges.
It’s in the dark times that we find out who we really are and what we are truly capable of achieving. Unfortunately, growth doesn’t happen in comfort zones. Hard times also reveal who is really there for us and who sticks by us in tough times. The sad times won’t last but the growth from challenging situations will last a lifetime.
