8. The concept of sadness and its role in life. Why does sadness exist at all? Does it serve any purpose? Is there ever a time when sadness becomes unhealthy or dangerous or toxic or destructive?
I've had my share of sadness over the years and sometimes I wonder if there's something wrong with me because of it (or maybe just because I wish there was less) . But then again, perhaps my moments of great creativity have come from my periods of sadness. Perhaps those who seem happiest are often not as creative as those who seem sadder but more balanced with their emotions overall. Perhaps those who never feel sad have become numb to their own lives so they don't notice things which might lead them towards creativity if only they noticed them more intently rather than just going through life like zombies on autopilot because they fear feeling too much pain associated with loss and disappointment (which always comes eventually anyway).
Is this just another way for me to rationalize my own moments/years/lifetime(s) worth of sadness ? Or am I learning from them ? Or both ? 1
