What makes you sad ?
« on: October 08, 2012, 07:43:31 PM »
What kind of things make you really sad ? When was the last time you cried ?

For me it was today, when the veterinarian had to put down my three most precious rabbits, Schrubber, Rembrandt and Marigold, after a period of sickness. Rembrandt dies in my arms. After that I was wandering around for hours, and I had no idea were I was going. I did not speak, eat or anything even when I finally arrived at home. The only thing I quietly said to myself were HazelĀ“s words:

"My heart has joined the Thousand for my friends stopped running today."

 
The other day when I was walking through the woods, I saw a rabbit standing in front of a candle making shadows of people on a tree.

I'm sorry for your loss. :(

I already lost two last week, so together five of my seven bunnies died ( Alice and Blackberry), and they were all young...

Poor honey </3 You'll find peace, don't worry. I lost my cat two years ago on valentine's day, and I felt the exact same way. You'll learn to laugh again. :) And we're here for you if you need it.


...and if it at all makes you feel better, my boyfriend of a full year joined a cult and said if I didn't join with him he would break up with me because he didn't want to become emotionally attached to someone who was going to hell. >.< It's a time of year for getting your heartbroken, it would seem.

The thought of others being sad?  I really don't know what brings it on with me.  Haven't had a pet in ages, and haven't had a relative pass on recently, so my guess is if a relative dies that I was close to.

You know, I can't really remember the last time I've been sad. All I can really remember recently is when I found The Land Before Time at my auntie's house. I don't know why, but when I found it, I just felt like bawling. I of course didn't at my auntie's place, but when I got home I cried. And for some reason, I only ever get sad when I'm watching an emotional movie.

But, there was this other time, when I had a bonfire with my friends, that my best friend  Daniel just started crying saying he felt he was worthless and that his brother had gone to jail and how everyone could only stare at him. I shed a few tears with him and tried to help. But then one of my other friends Brayden said he knew how he felt, using him and his break-up with his girlfriend as an example. They met over facebook and all I ever hear him talk about is how much sex he has with his so called girlfriend. And what's more, Daniel (or me for that matter) had never even met his girlfriend and Daniel had never had a girlfriend before. So Daniel Yelled "No you don't, you don't know how I feel!!" Brayden was like "F**k you say, I oughta punch you out!" or something like that, I was ready to beat him senseless. Nothing happened though, but I still felt sad for Daniel and I still felt like beating Brayden for comparing his shallow relationship to what Daniel was going through and wanting to punch daniel for rightfully getting mad. Might seem unreasonable, but that's how I felt at the time.

So that's what makes me sad, and those are the last times I cried. I'm sorry about your rabbits man. I've never lost a pet, but man, thinking about losing my dog kills me on the inside.

It makes me both sad AND really angry when people are cruel to animals. Somehow this disturbs me more than cruelty to other humans. Maybe because animals are so helpless and are so undeserving of that kind of treatment. Or neglect. Having volunteered for shelters, it makes me incredibly sad to see so many are given 'up' because they are not wanted.

The worst is the meat industry. It is hell for the poor animals. I understand my friend.  :blackberry

It moves me and makes me mourn the beautiful end as in Watership Down ..
Among other beautiful films.
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

The pain of others (and self) and state of the world in general.

Indifference is a coping mechanism. I don't recommend it, just food for thought.

The homeless people and pets especially during the holiday season make me sad.

Now that's sad, so it is better to support them with food instead of money in the charity homes. So do not spend the money on drugs some ..   :blackberry

Wow, this thread is a bit...intense.
I'm usually sad when I feel I've failed people, I guess. When I don't live up to who I want to be. Especially with my girlfriend. If she's upset, I'm upset.
All that kind of stuff makes me sad. :(
"We'll carry on,
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I can't contain it
The anthem won't explain it."

Seeing these horrible acts of terrorism makes me both sad AND angry.  My heart goes out to all the victims.
