Most people find it challenging to cope with feelings of sorrow and unhappiness they may be experiencing. Whether you are struggling with disappointment or feeling deep anguish, know that you are not alone. A sad message for yourself can help you express what you feel inside.

  • I now think I am right on my own. No fights or love. It is just me, myself, and I.
  • When someone hurts you once, never forgive that person because that person will hurt you more often than you can imagine. In the end, the time you have spent with that person is wasted.
  • Some people are so lucky that after hurting, they get love, and some are so unlucky that after giving so much love, they always get hurt. I am hurting.
  • I’m not looking for someone to complete me. I’m looking for someone who accepts me.
  • I wanted to feel, but I got hurt because I feel too much. I love too much, and I even care too much.
  • I am bent, but not broken, I am scared, but not tainted, I am sad, but not hopeless, I am tired, but not powerless, I am angry, but not bitter, I am depressed, but not giving up.
  • Sadness is not the opposite of happiness. It’s a part of it.
  • When a loved one leaves, it is often difficult to let go. But we must not forget the promise we make to ourselves and to them.
  • It is hard to wait around for something that might never be, but it is harder to let go when it is everything you have ever wanted.
  • No matter how clear the ending, I will always wonder what would have happened if I had tried.
  • I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can let go. Things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they are right. You believe their lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
  • I never knew what sadness was until I lost you.
  • Starting today, I need to forget what's gone. Appreciate what still remains and look forward to what's coming next.
  • The most significant pain I ever felt was denying my feelings to make everyone else feel comfortable.
  • Never wait for a person who is essential to you. Because if you meant something to them, they would not let you wait.
  • Caring for someone more than they care for you is a form of emotional disaster.
  • There’s always a hole inside me. Sometimes it’s empty, and sometimes it’s full.
  • There’s a big difference between a sad goodbye and a goodbye with the hope of a new beginning.
  • To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the most significant punishment we can bring on ourselves.
  • This is the hardest part of leaving. You cannot see the future, and you do not know if you will find what you are looking for.
  • I know what it’s like to feel sadness. It’s like a dark cloud above your head.

  • To love someone with all your heart, and they don’t love you back, is the saddest thing in life.
  • I may not get to see you as often as I like, and I may not get to hold you in my arms all through the night. But deep in my heart, I truly know you're the one I love, and I can't let you go.
  • Memories are lovely and sad both at a time. I loved you so much that our memories of being together made me smile and cry at the same time.
  • Even if loving you hurts, I can’t stop doing it. I’ll keep waiting for you with my eyes filled with tears.
  • You said you would be mine to the last day of your life! You said you love me crazily, and nothing in the world can take you away from me! Now those commitments make me laugh.
  • You filled my life with happiness, but now you have left me crying. It is hard coming to terms with the fact that we will never be together again.
  • I still can’t figure out how our love for each other suddenly became cold. I wish we could make things right.
  • Each drop of tear is more costly than anything in the world! But, no one knows its value until they have it in their own eyes for someone.
  • Can you survive peacefully being under the guilt for breaking my trust? You can because you're a heartless girl.
  • You made me realise the only person who will never betray me is myself. I feel grateful for the lesson!

  • I hope that every tear that drops from my cheeks becomes the karma that comes around and crushes your happiness again and again.
  • I never imagined that your voice, once music to my ears, would one day be the knife in my heart.
  • I gave you my heart to love it, not crush it. I gave you my body to embrace it, not to humiliate it. I gave you my soul to cherish it, not kill it.
  • All I wanted was for you to love me and hug me tightly when my world was falling apart. Instead, you were the one to make it fall apart.
  • My feelings and my life, you have completely mocked. In agony and pain, I hope that your heart is forever locked.
  • Do you know how badly you hurt me? I cried so much because of you, and you didn't care about my tears.
