The Blues

We all get the blues from time to time. They are those periods in which we sink low and deep into the nether worlds of existence. Our hopes and dreams seem so far out of reach and we feel like we are about to hit rock bottom. Just a silly period of time that might last no longer than a day, except we feel like it has been going on for a century. How do we fight the blues? Do we even want to fight them? The truth of the matter is that the blues are the grease of our happy existence. We are so obsessed with happiness and every single action we take is towards an eternal feeling of happiness. We eventually reach a stage where we have become numb with it. So much happiness overflows our lives to such a ridiculous extent. Ah but the blues are what makes it all balanced. They are the bitter medicine that makes happiness taste like the rarest of sweets. So do we really want to fight off the blues that are the essence of what makes life worth living?
