A better way to think about sadness and grief

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, and sometimes we rework terrible ones.

This meme comes from a meme we found that told people to suppress their emotions and throw happiness on top of suffering. It was terrible, so Karla rewrote it. 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.

When life gives you a hundred reasons to break down and cry, break down and cry in a hundred ways and let the genius of sadness and grief bring you healing, flow, and depth.

Your emotions, all of them, are your strength.
