Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.
You see, if you throw a negative light on your life and your life experiences, it doesn’t matter where you are, where you live, what job you get , or how much more money you make, you will always find a way to want MORE and be unhappy with what you have. You will always want to be somewhere else . You will always want the life of someone else.
