I have heard people telling ” don’t be sad”. Is there any problem being sad?. No. Not at all !!.Infact at times, being sad helps. Lets compare being sad with being happy. Everyone loves and lives to be happy and that’s perfectly alright .But sometimes, happiness can be an end. There is nothing more or better to do after being happy. It gives you the idea that you are settled.One cannot be more happy or less happy but just happy.
As far as I think,being sad is a bit different. Sadness can reduce or increase with the course of time. Its not stagnant. It shows mobility and our present world is all about either moving forward or letting go.Sadness push you to your extremes and show you your limits. Sadness helps you to think different, to change and to know yourself. It increases your creativity as we all know that great poets, painters and artists have done their best works under severe pain and depression.It brings the best in you. It gives you the room to improve. The happiest person can only come down because he is at the peak, he can either stay in that level or lose it.
Happiest people are always worried about losing it. One small downfall shatters them.At times, happiness can let you do stupid things, but you are the most sensible when you are sad. Its when you think widely. Its when you open up. Its when you think of moving on. Its when you think of happiness. A happy person only recognize happiness when they lose it. But sadness demands to be felt.We need sadness to find how happy we were.It reminds me of the famous lines from the movie “The curious case of benjamin button”
“We are meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are?”
When you are sad,you can find who your real friends are. Sadness can teach you 10 times more lessons than happiness ever can.Sadness is all yours. Nobody will come asking for a share. Any fool can be happy, but it takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuffs that make us weep.
In the hindi movie rockstar, there is a conversation between the characters regarding how to become a rockstar and it is said that “you must have that inner burning and pain to be a rockstar”. This gives a big spark. It doesn’t mean that happy people can’t be rockstars, but depression is deep and everything which it reproduce are even deeper, and when its deep, it touches the soul.
Sadness makes you worry and this worry can help you to struggle, survive and stand up.There can be several different opinions about this thought of mine. But let me tell you my dear friends, when you are sad; weep, think,worry and its ok, its human and it helps…
