The reason we feel sad

Is so that we can feel happy.

Think about it, opposite feelings or emotions are necessary for us to realise our feelings.  For example, if you’re not hungry, you won’t really be able to feel content after a meal, or enjoy the food you’re eating.  If you’ve never been poor, you cannot fully appreciate what it is to be rich.  If you have never feared, you won’t know what it is to feel safe.  If the spot is not itchy, scratching it will not make you feel satisfied!

So, we need to feel sad in order to feel happy.  Think about this the next time you feel sad.  Then when you’re happy afterwards, enjoy it fully, knowing that you fully deserve to feel happy.

Crazy as it may be, we humans strive on being emotional.  That’s why we love drama, comedy, love stories, fantasies, etc… they are all there to bring out emotions in us and we call it entertainment!  Look at roller-coaster rides and horror films.  Why do we put ourselves through stuff like that?  The fear gives us an adrenaline high, which then amplifies the next emotions of relief and create an energy surge.

We are just emotion junkies.

So, to quote the Monty Python…

“Always look on the bright side of life

Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten

There’s something you’ve forgotten

And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing

When you’re feeling in the dumps

Don’t be silly chumps

Just purse your lips and whistle – that’s the thing

Life’s a piece of shit

When you look at it

Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true

You’ll see it’s all a show

Keep ‘em laughing as you go

Just remember that the last laugh is on you”
