25 Inspiring Quotes To Overcome Your Sadness And Hard Times

Along the road of seeking happiness, you will get hit by sad storms that may change your heart and even your whole life. It's part of this life to get hit down just before hitting up there to the top.

You cannot carry out with your positivity all the time, and when it's time for negativity you have to believe that it won't last either.

When you are sad, you have this feeling that it won't go away and maybe that you will be stuck forever. That's because the heart is already immersed in a situation that cannot see any other way around.

However, you must know somewhere in your head that this too shall pass. It's just hard to admit it at the moment, but this belief will grow stronger over time until you manage to overcome your sadness.

And like Rumi said, "Wound is where the light enters you." Sadness is your wound that hurts so much to the degree that new strength cells are being created by your weak body.

The chaos left behind every sad storm will be arranged into something beautifully healing. This is what makes you firmer.

It must be hard for you. It's obvious that you are having nightmares-like times. Life must be tough for you to go any further and all the reasons to continue are vanishing. But, let me tell you something, you are not alone.

In this world, there are countless persons who think about giving up thousands of times, yet they still persevere. If they were to give in to their distress, then the whole world would collapse out of the gloom.

It will get better and you will be stronger. Furthermore, you will feel happiness again. I promise you that because this is the law of living.

Just like day and night are taking over alternatively, pain and happiness will act the same. You will laugh out of joy and you will love yourself and your days as much as you were distressed and depressed before.

We need to hear that everything will be alright from time to time not because we lack knowledge but because we are not listening to our inner logic. We are carried out by strong negative emotions making it hard to be rational.

To help your mind move from the dark zone of sadness, here are 25 inspiring quotes to overcome your sadness and get over the hard times. I hope they help you feel a little better when you are sad.
