The way sadness contributes to life

This short video illustrates how sadness improves our ability to show compassion and express empathy. The soothing tones and elegantly simple graphics drew me in and whispered an essential truth, "The good life is not one immune to sadness, but one in which suffering contributes to our development."



I don't know if anyone would actually WISH for their growth to come through melancholy, but it's encouraging to know there is  a point.

I hope I remember this wisdom in the sad days.
