When the heart is burdened with grief, nothing looks bright. It is not easy to shake off the gloom. The more you try to run away from it, the more it chases you. So let us learn to face our sadness. Here are some sad quotes about life. Use them as an antidote for your depression. Flush the negativity out of your heart. Believe that life is awesome, and you have the chance to make the most of it.

There’s something addictive about sadness. It is like a drug that makes you crave sadness. At the same time, you want to get away from it. The self-pity, the self-deprecation, and the selfishness keep one wallowing in grief. It is a cocoon that keeps you aloof from the world of joy.

It’s time to break away from these downward-spiraling thoughts. Self-pity helps no one, not even you. If you want to move on, think positive.
