Everyone feels sad sometimes, just like everyone can feel joyful, angry, proud and plenty of other emotions. In other words, everyone has feelings, and those feelings are always changing.
Sometimes we feel happy (such as when we’re having fun) and sometimes we feel sad (such as when we lose a loved one). Whatever the feelings, it is real and part of living.

A video recently went viral on TikTok of a woman who shares how a e-hailing driver noticed her crying in his car and then later offered to listen to her problems and even gave her some words of encouragement.
The video was shared by TikTok user Alya, who was on her way to a shopping mall alone while recording herself being sad.
The e-hailing driver then noticed the fact that Alya was crying in the back seat and asked her if she was okay. He even told Alya that she’s allowed to talk to him about her problems.
In the video, Alya said that she was on a healing journey, and was on her way to the mall to spend some time alone, which is why she was recording the whole process.
“The driver saw that I was crying and asked whether I was okay. He passed me a box of tissues and offered to listen to my problems, if I needed someone to talk to,” she wrote in the caption.
Alya then decided that it was okay to open up to the driver which made her cry even more. The driver was kind enough to patiently listen to her, and then later shared some words of encouragement.
At the end of the video, Alya advised the public to not share your problems with strangers, or you’ll end up in a flood of tears: “Stay strong, guys! Look at me, now this poor driver’s car is flooded with my tears,” she said in the caption.
@itsaly4a Cite dia, aku order grab nak pi mall sebab nak healing sorang sorang. So the reason why i record time ni, konon nak record acah healing la, pndang luar tingkap sambil nangis HAHAHAH ngok. Pastu abg grab nampak, and tnye "Kau ok tak" lpstu dia hulur tisu and dia ckp "aku nak kau tahu, kalau kau ada anything to share, aku ada and boleh dengar" So aku pun cerita knp aku sedih. Patu dia nasihat la. Tu yg meleleh leleh air mata sbb mata masuk habuk. Tebal woo habuk yang masuk, aduuu. Pastu masa malam nak balik tu, hujan lebatt! Patu tkde grab bole amik aku sbb kawasan yg aku nak lalu tu banjir wehh kat area alam budiman😭 Aku dh risau kene tidur kat setia city mall tu ha😭 Nasib baik Allah hantarkan sorg pakcik grab ni, dia tolong lalu jalan jauh utk sampai ke palam. So malam tu aku selamat sampai uni aku😂 Moral of the story, stay strong geng!! Takyah nak acah healing cm aku😂😂 Duduk je rumah, kang sangkut kt banjir tak pepasal😂😂 #healing #banjir ♬ Dia Yang Kau Pilih - Shahir
The video has since garnered over 1.3 million views at the time of writing. Many took to the comment section to praise the driver for his kind words.
“He was so stern but so kind at the same time. He should get a 5-star rating for his advice!” said one person.
What a sweet interaction. We hope you feel better Alya!
We hope there are more kind people in this world, like this e-hailing driver!
