How to not feel sad?
I don’t know :)
But there’s something I know for sure
Sadness is a part of life.
Without sadness, there is no happiness.
Just like without darkness we can’t see the shining stars.
So another question I’d suggest asking is
How to deal with sadness…
I tried to find the answer to that question and came up with this so-called
A toxic relationship loop, starting from
We judge people (about the way they look, talk, act, think)

And we feel sad, disappointed, hopeless, tired, etc.
That’s the sign when we rely too much on the outside world.

We consider carefully before every purchasing decision.
We keep our money safe and only trade it for some benefits in return.

Time for bed, it’s a long day, you look at your todo list and guess what
So many left to be done.
What would you feel?
Guilty, frustrated, unproductive, stressful, ashamed?
Here’s the fact: you will hardly get all your work done!
Not-yet-completed is not inefficiency; it’s progress.
