An Open Door to Sadness is an Open Door to Life

I learned that if I didn’t open up and feel my sadness, I wouldn’t be able to feel anything. Acceptance helped me to find my way out of depression and to find a life that I wanted to live.

What if an open door to sadness is an open door to life?

Going through depression taught me that opening up to what I feel is the way to open up to life. The more I closed off to my feelings, my experience – the smaller my life became.

What about you? What helps you to open up to life?
