Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Sadness Tracks Happiness: Emotions.


Sadness tracks Happiness.


I came home today, and I was pretty excited for no reason…I laughed, and played, and shouted, and enjoyed. Later, I was trapped in that depressive mode of mine:

And I began humming sad tunes.



And pondering.

Why does that always happen? Why does sadness track happiness? Why is sadness powerful?

    yar this isn’t always the case.. and if u attract happiness, it’ll come to u, and if u attract sadness, it’ll come to u as well. remember that sadness is a crucial part of life but in some circumstances u cant completely change the picture by reacting positively and thus, converting dull times into livelier ones..

    • Thank you for the comment=)
      This is not a fact, I agree. But it often seems that ‘hard times follow good ones’ and vice verso. At one instant, you are so happy about anything and at the second instant, a bad memo or something invades your mind.. But its true, that happiness should be invited so that it comes:)

    Nice (:
    But now give me an answer to the question you asked yourself. ;(

    • Lol this post is kinda awkward. I found the answer in these years though and it’s so blunt it might not even be considered as an answer: it just happens because life. :3
      You come, you cry, you laugh, you die. It’s a series of unsurprising oddities. :3 sadness tracks happiness but [optimistic mode: ON, limited time] happiness tracks sadness too. ^_^ Inna ma’al usri yusra! :))

          • Lol MashaAllah. xD What do I suggest now? Ummm. Okay! Have you checked the Writing201 poems? They include an ode, a sonnet, a haiku, limerick, etc. I experimented with new forms for a short writing challenge. It was fun! (You can try them too if you’re interested!)
            Otherwise you can read Mystical Embrace and if you’re interested in prose, I’ll do another search. :p

            Hehe…I don’t always get Haikus :3 I might try to write one though.
            I think I haven’t read Mystical Embrace😛 No don’t search!
