Sadness contains an ever-present degree of depressed energy levels. You may not always acknowledge the sadness or even that you’re feeling down, but this lack of enthusiasm is physically and emotionally palpable. It’s a dull feeling that pervades your entire body and mind, affecting the quality and meaning of your life; it’s terrible as if you’ve had the top-end of your energy tank removed.

Talk with Amit Kaur

Whereas you might normally bring 100% of yourself to any activity, sadness zaps 20-40% of your top end, so the best you can come up with is 60-80%, tops. You can’t compete. Even if you wanted to, you don’t have what it takes.

Don’t Let it Define You.

Sadness, depressed energy levels, or a lack of enthusiasm can become chronic and thus a new normal. Not quite depression, similar to a low-grade depression. Our daily habits define our lives. Consider upgrading both the quality and meaning of those habits.

Sadness precludes other emotions, such as joy, rapture, excitement, and thrill, emotions that we might prefer to enjoy at the high end of our emotional experience. Need help?



As an Executive coach and licensed Psychologist, I assist professionals, individual entrepreneurs, and corporate clients with interests and challenges related to personal and professional leadership. Posts reflect client concerns and actions. You don't need to be an executive to secure coaching for yourself, but you should have a degree of ambition. Strategizing on how your career or life might improve and move forward takes time for reflection, either on your own or through dialogue. Opportunity is required to reflect well upon new and detailed information regarding your strengths and weaknesses. Sound consideration leads to a strategy that produces informed action, which precedes success. Wear your strengths like a badge of honor & be cautious of areas you may tend to error in.
