I sit there sometimes, rather a lot actually. On the edge of happiness and sadness. I sit there. And so does everybody else. I often feel, like I am dangling on the edge. I am strong, but I will not stay in one piece when I fall. So why is it so easy to just let yourself fall. Decisions, are hard to make. They alter something. This thing you do, this thing you choose. changes something, and change can be terrifying. Especially when you are dangling on the edge. You see, saddness is consuming, and saddness is powerful. But most importantly saddness, depression can mask the way you see things. As human beings we are capable to do so much, to see so much. To change so much. But we forget that when we are dangling on the edge. Because saddness becomes consuming, it makes you feel weaker when you are strong. It makes you see black when there is colour. So the decision to choose happiness over saddness, is a hard one.
Everywhere you go you will see somebody struggling with depression. Every aspect of life will contain some once of sadness, because it is there. Because sadness is a thing that exists, a thing that is shoved into a category like saddness is something that is not unique to its own individual. Like saddness can be cured with a pill and not the urge to improve, to change. Like saddness can be seen and heard. Like saddness was our own choice. It wasn’t.
But there is one choice you can make. A hard one, but a true one. One that can save somebody. But only if they find the strength to make it. Only if they realise their capability can they make it. To choose happiness. Even when you can’t see it. Even when your eyes are so covered with depression and evil. Even when you see no colour. Even when you see no beauty. Even when you forget the meaning of the word positivity. Choose happiness. Because it will always be there, no matter how much you cannot see it.
You see the only cure to depression, the only cure to sadness is beauty. Beauty surrounds us in every cell and every life form. In every strand of grass and in every grain of sand. Lives beauty. Beauty is also a powerful thing, something that can cure the most sad of hearts and warm the most broken of souls. But beauty is often not seen. Unless you look hard enough. But when you find it, the light will turn back on.
You see, you could put say 10 people in a room. And place the same thing in front of them. You could tell them to gather their opinions on what they saw. And they would say different things. Because as humans we are all unique, individual. Becuase we all have a different way to look at things. One person’s passion is another person’s interest. And one person’s colour is another persons dark. It’s the way we look at things, think about things. That makes our every decision. It is the way we think which causes happiness or sadness. It is the way we think that can cause us to fall or to lift ourselves up.
All you have to do is change the way you see things, change the way you think. Look closely, see beauty. Look closely, see happiness. When you are falling remind yourself that it is ok to fall, as long as you get back up. It is ok to break, as long as you glue yourself back together. It is ok to hang on the edge, as long as eventually, you pull yourself up, and choose happiness.
