Sadness is emotional pain associated with, or characterized by feelings of disadvantage, loss, despair, helplessness and sorrow. An individual experiencing sadness may become quiet or lethargic, and withdraw themselves from others. Crying is often an indication of sadness.

Sadness can be viewed as a temporary lowering of mood, whereas depression is more chronic.

You shouldn't loose your self-esteem. I mean, you've got to appreciate and value the stuff you are made of i.e. do have confidence in your own worth or abilities. For, loss of the sense of self-esteem causes depression, hopelessness, illness, anxiety, anger, sadness and a host of other negative emotions. Thus, dare to have high self-esteem and never low self-esteem. ~Emeasoba George
