Sadness is one of the “six basic emotions” described by Paul Ekman, along with happiness, anger, surprise, fear and disgust.
if sadness is “not allowed”,it may cause problems,
if sadness is “screened off”, people can become shallow and manic.
Sadness starts with birth,the cutting of umbilical cord,
when get dettached from the security and comfort of the mother’s womb
sadness occurs for the first time,
no,it may not be the first time…..even before that,
the sleepy child, happily living within the uterus,enjoying a kind of swinging in amniotic fluid
as the mother happily moves around.
but when she stop and ,as she cries,
he feel sadness within the uterus,this may be the sadness for the first time.
In life,when he lose something especially something valuable
he feel sadness
and most valuable is nothing but love.
the sadness on the lost love…….
.the ability to feel sadness is an emotional achievement.
And it is really a true emotion:speaks only truth.
