Sadness Is a Symptom

Sometimes it’s the thing glaring you right in the face

I meet a lot of unhappy people.

Not that they tell me out and out they are unhappy. It’s not like they walk up to me and tell me that they are wildly unhappy and don’t what to do about it. That would be weird. I don’t even know most of them. But when you feel sadness, you recognise it others.




Relaxed, inspiring essays about happiness.
