If life comes with big joys, it gives you 440-watt jolts as well, quite frequently. Such shockers may come in any form, the greatest of them being the passing away of a near and dear one.
The point I am trying to drive home is that one can’t say no to the dark days of life because they come to you in the ‘package deal’ you had ‘okayed’ before landing on planet Earth. The deal that goes with life is an unavoidable ‘mix’ of all kinds of good, bad and ugly.
Normally, unlike the feelings of joys, one does not share sad things and prefers to cry all alone as if, by doing so, one can throw out all the feelings of sadness from one’s mind. But that may or may not happen, depending on the person’s ability to reason and see the reality of life.
Yes, it is always better to cry away your feelings of sadness. As British writer Brian Jacques, says:” Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
It is foolish to try to protect yourself from sadness because it will come anyway. It comes as a package with joy that you go on seeking all the time. You can say it is the price you have to pay for the joys of life.
