Happiness is a feeling which we consider as our birth right. Almost every motivational guru is telling us how to be happy and positive in life and how to override any feeling of negativity or sadness that holds us back from being happy or positive in life? But can you really be positive without learning what’s it like to embrace negativity? Can there really be any light without darkness?
Happiness and sadness are two sides of a coin, just as light is to dark and negative is to positive. We can never be really happy if we do not know how to accept and embrace sadness. Everything in life is temporary. No moment or phase in life is ever permanent. We can never appreciate the beauty of light till we have not experienced the dark. Stars shine the brightest and the moon's beauty is at its best only in the dark. Even in the movies that we watch, there’s no 'happily-ever-after' without the hero and the heroine suffering for a major part of the movie.
