It’s paradoxical how allowing yourself to feel your sadness in the end makes you a happier person.

We have to learn to be with the whole picture. We can’t be happy and free when all the time we are trying to not feel one side of our experience.

It’s understandable of course. No one wants to feel their pain, but sadness is also a doorway to the heart of compassion. And when we deepen into life’s fullness, that is where true joy resides.
