Anger, Disgust, Fear, Joy, Sadness

Always a fan of Disney's movies. Inside Out is a 2015 film and I've finally watched it after so long. The connection is strong the empathy is deep. I guess it is normal for everyone who watched the movie and rated a high rating to have a similar thought as mine? We all go through the same few emotions - joy, sadness, fear, anger, disgust... The difference is the reaction toward every situation.

Jotting down some important lessons I've learned from this movie - We need sadness to feel happiness. Happiness without sadness has no meaning.

We are constantly being reminded to always look at the positive side of life even if we face situations that crossed our boundaries. I did this to myself very often. But slowly I know - even if we can't be as positive as how easy it is being said, even if we are sad, mad, even if we show our disappointment (choose to show to only people who matter), it is okay, it is really okay and we don't have to be perfect. We just have to be real and to know when to let go.

Emotions are magic.
In certain situation, the reason why we react in a strange way that no one can understand, firstly it is because we lost the core memories of happiness and lost the strength to pursue happiness. Next before we understand it is all because of sadness, we let anger, disgust, and fear to take control first before we able to figure things out. Sadness is something that is really hard to express, or too easy to be masked by anger, disgust, and fear.
We tend to shut sadness out and try to convince sadness not to be sad because it deems to be weak to be sad. Noo not right it takes courage to show sadness. Btw all nostalgic happy memories are mostly tinged with a bittersweet element. Recalling one of the quotes by Sadness in the movie "Crying helps me slow down and obsess over the weight of life's problems.", yeah this is effective.

Afterall it is important to learn about emotions.
What are your core memories of happiness and sadness?
What will you do when you are sad?

I will definitely recommend this one to all who are on the path of self-discovery.

Uhhh but why Bing Bong has to die? Maybe this imaginary friend can come back in another illustration when Riley gets Joy back? I think so. Imagination is good for health. Like imagining my coming weekend with my girlfriends doing some random stuff, and another coming weekend with coursemates trying food and cafes during a short escape... and even imagining I'm getting a car park in a mall every time during peak period... picturing a lit bit of beautiful scene of my future is good.

Cheer to a higher level of acceptance toward sadness. #lovethismovie
