I was just on the long drive home from Scotland down back South with my parents. It's a journey we used to make every year and I remember on the way back we'd always get the "treat" of a Little Chef at the end of the holiday. This was just a chain of roadside diners in the UK but they did proper sit down food which was decent but not amazing. It was a nice way to end the holiday and I'll always remember the times I spent there on a Sunday summer evening.

The chain of restaurants has been struggling however and went down from about 400 across the UK to now about 70. We just tried to get some dinner in one of the few remaining ones but it was only open 7am-3pm so we were too late. It's a shame that these sit down restaurants have been replaced largely by places selling fast food (Burger King, Maccies)

I shouldn't really be sad about it but I was. It's just business and a chain closing down but given that it's niche isn't there or hasn't been filled but it made me sad.

So what are some things that shouldn't make you sad that make you sad

If I'm sad about something, then that's what I truly feel. I don't search for defense mechanisms to tell the world why I shouldn't be sad about it; that's a bitch move. Grief is natural, and those who put on a front to show everyone that they never feel the pain of loss are sociopaths.

Edit: Even worse are, actors, who do feel the pain, yet manipulate their audience into thinking they've conquered their inner-demons to portray something meaningful (specious activity).

This, but specifically for The Big Lebowski. Not just because it's my favorite, but because I used to watch it with my dad, who passed away in 2008. Sort of feels like I'm watching it with him. So when it ends, it's a weird sensation of like "he was here for a bit but is gone again." Doesn't help that the ending is surprisingly pensive, if not in a silly way.

tfw you listen to the last song from a band's last album

and you think like oh man this was the end of them right here

especially if a band broke up because of and almost immediately after the death of one of the members

I disagree. 

In my experience, there is a time and place for when appearing resilient in the face of sadness is appropriate, such as when trying to act as a role model towards people who may be incapable of understanding your grief, or a scenario were explaining your grief would put you in a compromising position. Such as appearing resilient in the face of inevitably having to explain to the 4 year old kids what has happened to their grandmother at the hospital. Appearing resilient when your father's alzheimer's disease makes them extremely difficult to live with and they require your almost constant care. And then having to maintain a professional attitude to protect your job and therefore the livelihoods of said kids and said father. Life is almost never that cut and dry to believe that hiding your emotions all the time or expressing them openly is always the right answer.

There are a lot of things that have gone away small businesses offer a more personalised service that big business just don't give a shit about, we have a neighborhood grocery store that is just the same as it was in the 1970's it's our go to to pick up things when we run out like milk or other perishables but they can't compete price wise with the big supermarkets so we can't afford to do all of our shopping there that kinda stuff makes me sad because that is what is killing off the small businesses.

I am sad that I can't call any business that has a friend human answer the phone.

huh?

a lot of my favorite bands had been broken up or had a dead singer, etc years before i listened to them and it was always a bit depressing knowing i'd never get a chance to see them live.

more irritatingly, a few of my favorites broke up between a year and a few months after i'd gotten into them.

then there's the ones i put off until it was too late like the Beastie Boys

Ah, okay. I personally just got numb to that, and really only one band has been like that to me (Black Sabbath), mostly because I only listened to The Beatles untul about two years ago…

I get this strange sense of sadness I never understood when I see a small child being looked after by their grandparent(s). It's probably a feeling of nostalgia but I am unsure completely.

As well as that, bands that I'll never see live, like I may have to give up tickets for in November

You know when people ask why you're sad
and you tell them why you're sad
and they say you have no right to be sad about that because other people have real problems

That makes me kind of sad

It makes me wonder why those exact same people don't also say that you don't have any right to be happy either, because other people have it far better then you do.

Because they aren't actually trying to give you perspective, they just want you to stop whining (which is understandable, but also makes me sad)
