“Sorrow is better than laughter for by sadness of face the heart is made glad” (Ecc.7:3).

Broken hearts can split your face into a slow grin over time. I love sad things. I love strolling through cemeteries. They teach me something. No pain feels good in the moment. But sorrow brings perspective. Sorrow brings wisdom.

Those who never stop laughing never close their mouths long enough to learn from heartache. Don’t be afraid of pain. Don’t be afraid to feel sadness. It’s okay to be sad in the same that it’s okay to feel alive.
