Day 13

What is your saddest memory?

  • My saddest memory would have to be when my grandfather passed away a week before Christmas I believe it was. Our family had just moved to a new state and it wasn’t too long ago I was visiting him at the hospital, he was talking but I knew he was in pain and that his condition was serious. I never figured his time after that would be cut so short, I loved him and I think the fact I couldn’t make it to his funeral sucked, and the fact I never got to say goodbye sucked, and I was younger, in my preteens, so of course it was just difficult all around.

What Emotion Do You Feel Most Often?

  • Somewhat of a difficult question to answer, but if I was being honest, I would say between frustration/sadness from thoughts of the past or flashbacks while listening to a song, and/or the feeling of being content — but not with life necessarily, just content because nothing is causing me to be extremely happy but at the same time, I am not upset either. My emotions are weird sometimes, especially when I am feeling emotional or in a vulnerable state of mind.

What helps you to heal?

  • Being able to find a way to move forward and not having to rethink about the pain/hurt. I find that time helps me to move forward but allows me to remember and so I can’t always agree that time heals. Laying in total darkness in silence or listening to sad music doesn’t make everything but helps to get my emotions out and crying is relieving in a sense it that it helps to put me to sleep. I need space alone when I am healing, I don’t particularly want to be crowed on or have tons of attention — I like my seclusion and battling things on my own.

Day 50

What Emotion do you wish you didn’t feel?

  • Sadness or the feeling of being overwhelmed/stressed out.  I am happy I can feel emotion, because it isn’t all bad, just sometimes it would be nice to not feel some of these emotions. 

Do you have an emotion(s) you wish you didn’t have to feel? leave the answers in the comments.

Day 6

What makes you sad?

  • Some of the things that can make me sad:
  1. When I am feeding off someone else who is sad or has negative energy
  2. When I hear and see on the news of crimes against innocent children
  3. Death 
  4. When someone is rude/mean to me for no apparent reason (this probably makes me mad more than anything)
  5. When I am feeling overwhelmed or anxiety 
  6. When I am listening to sad music in an emotional state
  7. My depressive moods
  8. When things don’t seem to be going my way & I feel as though there is nothing I can do about it
  9. Being scared pending the situation
  10. When I fail at something important to me
The things listed (not all of them trigger my sadness) many times it depends on the circumstances and environment I am in  that could cause these answers to make me feel sadness. At some point, one or more of these things listed have caused sadness but doesn’t mean they always cause me sadness/grief.

What life lessons have books taught you?

  • Recently I have picked up reading again, all of them being used for “self help” and spirituality. I started them either based on recommendations from peers or for clarity after enduring something that caused me grief/sadness & needing to find ways to cope, and pick myself back up again. All of these books thus far have taught me to be kind to myself – there is a light at the end of every tunnel, no matter how dark it gets. The books that I have read with characters, plots, and mystery were used as amusement and an escape from my mind/ a way to get out of my own head. 

I know I have many people who follow my blog that read almost daily, and this would be an awesome question for you folks to answer since you have probably read way more books than myself. I would love to hear some answers and the kind of genre of book it was that taught you the lesson(s).
