Remember the sun and wind story?

Sadness is just like the sun. It creeps slowly into your life. It coats you in layers of its essence, forcing you to strip off and drop your guard.

Without fortitude, you will be at your most vulnerable. You are thirsty. In the same way you long for an ice-cold bottle of Gatorade when the sun makes you break a sweat, sadness makes you long for company, approval, and appreciation.

And when it comes from the wrong source, disaster will strike.

The question is, how do you protect yourself AND keep your sanity?
