#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 21 - What Makes You Sad

Day 21: What Makes You Sad

So, coming off yesterday's topic of Happiness, the obvious opposite of that is Sadness! I find that the exact opposite of each of those things I described yesterday (family, things I enjoy) can be a cause for sadness! But I guess I should give more thought to this subject.

Well, there are a few things that can make a guy like me upset, saddened, hurt, unable to function, etc. Firstly, there's death! I hate it! I literally wish everyone could live forever, and not deal with it. But it's a fact of life ... for now!

Secondly, I can't stand rejection! I find it one of the hardest things for me to deal with and function behind! I spend a lot of time trying to do what's right by folks, and trying to make people happy! So, feeling rejection from those people makes me sad! Especially when I care for those people. There's so many examples of rejection, but any of them, for me, can be devastating...not only to my ego, but to my overall existence!

And finally, seeing others hurt! Again, this is especially true for those I care about and/or love!  Seeing them hurt, seeing them struggling, in pain, etc., just breaks my heart! This is probably one of the main reasons I spend time trying to please (some) people, and try to make them happy! If I see them hurt or sad, then it makes me sad. So being the cause of that sadness, is just unfathomable to me!

What makes you sad!?
