Imagine walking down the road, happy because something exciting happened to you and suddenly you just become sad, for no reason, no explanation. This happens to me almost everyday, one minute I am happy, next minute I am sad.
Sometimes I can pin point what made me sad, and most times it is something minute, a random comment from a passerby, a random video i saw on my phone, a homeless person by the wayside or a bad attitude form someone. For people like me who struggle everyday to be happy, to not give into the sad thoughts that always lurk in our mind, it takes a great deal to smile, and when we smile, it is the most beautiful sight in the world.
It really sucks when you have no control over your emotions and any little thing can affect your thoughts and actions. The funniest thing is that it takes more strength to come out of a sad place than a happy place. The most annoying thing is when people ask why are you sad? why don't you try to smile? No Karen, I smiled earlier when I saw your cute little baby until you mentioned how fat I have become.
It really takes nothing to be kind to the next person, to mind your words because everybody is different and we react to different things in multiple ways.
