Author, Counsellor, Life Coach Dr. Ali Khwaja speaks on Be Happy When You Are Sad

Do you feel sad when you think of sadness? Do you think sadness is like an illness, something very painful which should be avoided at all costs?

If so, then let me tell you that you are missing out on something very beautiful. Sadness is a very sweet emotion, it brings you down to the reality of life, and gives you an opportunity to slow down, think deeper, and question where you are headed. Often it actually helps you to take more balanced and mature decisions.

If you are happy all the time, you will not be able to truly enjoy it – like if you were given ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is neither good nor advisable to be happy all the time. Being calm, contented, peaceful is more important. And being sad is very important, because sadness is one of the four basic or core emotions that are intrinsically embedded into us. When you feel sad for someone else, you learn how to face potentially sad situations yourself, and when you feel sad for yourself, you start thinking not only what caused the sadness and how to avoid it in future, but also how to develop the means and inner strength to overcome it – thus becoming more self-reliant.

….and most important, you will never be able to truly enjoy and feel happiness unless you have actually experienced and gone through sadness. So if you are feeling sad now and then, cherish the emotion, absorb the feeling, and be happy !
