I used to think that sadness is a stable state hence desperation can be aspired for. I correct that approach now. Desperation may be stable as there is nothing more sad than that and being happy you may have the fear of being sad later on. But the whole fun of life are these ripples of happiness and sorry or else life becomes too boring.. I correct my view as " Whether its happiness or sorrow, if we can tune ourselves to enjoy both then we can make most out of this life"
