Why is it that I feel MOST alive when I'm either really sad or unbelievably happy? When I'm teetering on either ends of the spectrum, that's when I'm most passionate and MOST emotional. Perhaps that is why I react to BOTH sides of the spectrum in the same manner --> through tears and through laughter. I cry when I'm sad. I cry when I'm happy. I laugh when I'm sad and I laugh when I'm happy. Go figure.
It's when things are just neutral. When things aren't really that rough... monotonous even.... that's when I find myself searching for either sides of the spectrum. And in that search... trouble finds me.
