In our Emotion Dynamics Facebook group, we search for images or messages that treat emotions and empathy with respect, but we don’t find many.
So we create our own!
This meme about sadness celebrates its gifts, and it challenges a lot of the messages we receive about avoiding sadness at all costs. Feel free to share this Better Meme.
If you’ve read The Language of Emotions or The Art of Empathy, and you’d like to join our Facebook group, come on over to The Language of Emotions and Empathy group on Facebook.

Sadness arises to help you let go of things that aren’t working for you.
If you can let go, you can relax and recover.
