Questions On Sadness

Can sadness become a want?
Can it become some sort of addiction?
These are odd questions… but ones that have been playing themselves over and over in my mind for the past several weeks.

Do some of us secretly enjoy being depressed because it gives us something to do?
Do we allow sadness to consume ourselves so entirely that it becomes our purpose in life?
Do we spend all our time reminiscing the good things that happened that we forget what we were made for?

I don’t know…
Because I have met people that literally become sad when they let go of things because now they don’t know what to do with all the free time.
I have met people that are so used to being upset that they can’t stand being happy.

Gosh, I wish so terribly that I could show you how beautiful gladness is!
Let go of that sadness, let go of the things that have let go of you… and breathe.
This is new air, true, and will take some time getting used to.
But this new air is what your lungs long for.
There is more life than you are living and more green than you are seeing.

Just let go and discover.
Find the things you were made to do… Live.

Envision That Horizon.

  2. I so agree with this post Joy.
    Probably that is why some people just stay sad, because they are so used to it and don’t want a change.

    Life is so beautiful people even with all its miseries.
    Go out, breathe and dance to the melodies of the universe.

    P.S. I love Joy [:
