Why people dislike being sad?

Why do you think people don’t like being sad?

it’s 4:04 p.m. here. we’re thinking of Jeopardy, and slanted news.

I think it was Daze that wrote a line in a poem that struck me: “My sadness turns the moon an exquisite blue”. That line really struck me. There is something about melancholy that exists somewhere between sadness and happiness.

For me, being sad makes me remember other time is was sad, which is a whole lot of sad. I’d prefer a bite-sized version.

Feeling sad occasionally can be a good thing. On the other hand, if you are depressed all the time that is a bad thing. But just occasionally indulging yourself by feeling sad about different things is not a terrible thing. Occasionally feeling sad about the way your life turned out or about your diseased parents or the fact you got schizophrenia can be a good thing; in moderation. Constantly being sad, day after day, all day, is too much.
