Sad quotes and sayings are used by people when they feel they are betrayed by a friend or a loved one. It feels like the world is falling apart and one has no purpose to live anymore. We should not let our sadness define ourselves.

We must overpower the feeling of negativity and rise about it. Those who leave us are not meant to be in our lives. Instead of focusing on who is gone, focus on who is with you and who you could meet. The world is a vast place. There is always more hope and love than one can gather.
