3 thoughts on “What Makes You Sad?”

  1. I’m sad when my wife or kids are sick that it makes me wish I could just take the illness for them and make them healthy instantly, all the stories about bullying, seeing someone judged negatively simply becaues of ethnicity or religion or political affiliation, Loss of loved ones, etc. Sadly, I admit this is me judging, but I feel really sad when I see children subjected to poor parenting. I will also purposely avoid watching the news because 59 minutes of the entire hour will make me sad, as all the stories reported are just terrible and there’s like only a one minute feel good story. And that’s because drama and negativity sells, and that makes me sad too.
