Is it a requirement? is a little sadness perhaps a good thing?

Not that I'm sad or anything haha, I'm just wondering if we need it.
This will start a RIOT! in me

I'd rather I didn't feel it.

Do we need it? Yes.

Not if your a sociopath.

Then it is only necessary to feel other people's sadness.

Well… if you never felt sadness you couldnt enjoy happiness to the fullest. So sadness is needed I guess.

If we didn't know what sadness was, how could we ever appreciate being happy?

Yes


It doesn't seem to me that emotions are felt in absolutes. More in "shades and percentages.," Without comparison there is no meaning.

That doesn't mean it doesn't suck though

You'd be pretty lost when someone died and all you could feel was happy


Actually there is more than just happy and sad. Human emotions aren't as black and white as that.

And sadness at a death is mostly a selfish emotion anyway when you think about it.

Yes, I think it's actually healthy to go as far as a good cry every once in a while as a form of catharsis.

No, emotions only serve to get in the way.


In the way of what?

It's also a love emotion though too because of your love for the person that died and your sad because of that.

Sadness gives you the incentive to strive towards happiness.

Or wallow in a pit of sadness.

But again that's a selfish emotion, you can't really feel sad that someone has died, you only feel sad that they are no longer in your life. Death doesn't hold any pain or suffering for people.

Of course there would obviously be exceptions, like someone dying very young. Then I guess you could be sad because they missed out on all the experiences of life.

Or I suppose if you thought someone was burning in hell or something like that.

Art would be nothing without depression.

Which isn't to say there is no art made in happiness or happy, bright works. I just think a lot of great, inspiring stuff comes from people when they wrote in fits of anger or sadness.

Sadness feels good in it's own way too. As do all emotions really, if you get them in the right dose.
