Hi Michelle,
I know this is a personal question and it doesn't need to be answered here...just an awareness....are you going through perimenopause??? This will cause unknown emotional moments. I just had a bout of the unknown tears today myself. I just went into my room and closed the door....let it out and prayed afterwards to feel the comfort of our Heavenly Host. This helps me alot but everyone is different and has a different method for comfort. I hope you feel better soon...... emoticon emoticon

Sometimes the best thing to do is the thing we don't want to do most, which is to talk about it. If you feel you burden your family too much with teary talk then perhaps you might want to consider seeing a counsellor to talk about your feelings and maybe you will discover the underlying cause of your sadness.

In the meantime, journaling about how you feel is a good thing. Perhaps something happened the previous day that was upsetting but you pushed it out of your mind. For whatever reason that you feel sad, try to keep in mind that "this too shall pass."

God Bless,

If you don't know why you're sad could it be pms, aka raging hormones? I used to hear women talk about being moody and I never understood how they felt. I never had a problem with it. Well.....about a year ago I started having days when anything would make me sad. I would have my own pity party for no reason. I remember one night being out with a group of friends. Everyone was having a good time and there was no reason I shouldn't have been having fun. Just all of a sudden I had to get out of there as fast as I could and cried all the way home. It finally dawned on me that each of those days was the day before I started my period. Once I recognized what it was I was able to deal with and say oh well I know what tomorrow will bring. There are times I give into a good cry and it's almost cleansing.

Whatever it is, I hope you receive a big ray of sunshine soon :)

I get days like this too and days where I wake up and I am angry with myself and I end up sniping at people even though I know its all about me being in a bad mood at least I can now recognise, like Alley_me says, that this is all about my undealt with feelings. Sometimes I can work out what these are and other days the reason escapes me but what I do now know is that these feelings pass and I will be back to my usual happy cheery self. I used to get angry and annoyed with myself when I felt like this as I don't like feeing that way but now I just accept that I have to get the feelings out of my system.

Don't beat yourself up about this and I hope you are now feeling at least a little bit better about things emoticon

Rather than feeling overwhelmed by making lots of changes in my life I am changing just one - my attitude

Hugs!!! I have days like this. Sometimes I blame the weather (which it isn't) But I say, it's so Hot! Cold! Wet! Dark! Bright! It makes me feel better to have a "something" to blame it on even if there is no reason. Tomorrow should be better. And if it's not.... Know this, we love you. Encourage you to hang in there. It's good to have support. Thank you for sharing your vulnerable moment. My hat is off to you! You brighten my day because you share that I am not alone in my troubles.

That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet. ~Emily Dickinson

It's upsetting when we cry and you don't know the reason for it. It happens to me from time to time. For me, it's stored up emotions that need to be released (I think). So I feel it's actually a good thing.

It's best not to judge ourselves for these feelings--but offer the same compassion and love for ourselves and our situations that we seem to offer much more easily to others. Be gentle and understanding with yourself. You will get through this. And we're here for you!

aww sorry to hear you are sad,,,, sometimes a good cry is good ..but meanwhile while you are shedding those tears just remember ,, if you are hurting ----- “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.” a fav quote from lance armstrong,,,
when i am so stressed out sad or overwelmed to tears ,,i good long soak in the bath tub can sure relax me ,,and i try to remember ,,there is so much to me-im not just the woman with too many pounds on her body,, a lesson im trying to teach my children and myself lol is so much more defines me besides my flaws,,i am also the fun friendly feisty mom and wife,,im good at poetry i unselfishly help others,,try to remind yourself of all those other things that really define you ..like your big heart or how u make people laugh or whatever other things make up the puzzle called ,,you..
