# 47 Sadness is a strange companion

I came across this as I trawled the archives on ‘Letters of Note’. It is from Paul Banks, lead singer with the band ‘Interpol’ to a fan who had sent him a letter, but it could equally apply to so many people and so many situations. If you’re feeling sad, I hope this cheers you up:

No matter how sad you may get, it’s always passing. You may wake up blue, and by the afternoon, everything will be rosey. Sadness is a strange companion. And a nuisance. So try not to pay it too much mind. And be present in your happy moments — and weigh them against the sad. It’s all worth it. And you will arrive somewhere wonderful with peace in your heart.
