Contempt invites feelings of hopelessness. Psychologist Martin Seligman clarified that when people feel depressed, i.e., hopeless, they regard a negative attribute as permanent and pervasive, i.e., as something that will always be there and cannot be changed.
Disgust is a strong negative feeling of aversion or disapproval. You may have a sickening feeling of revulsion, loathing or nausea. Disgust, as registered by the wrinkled nose, lowered brows, narrowed eyes, a protruded tongue and a open-mouthed look of a baby who has just tasted lemon juice, certainly is universal.
“Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happiness) And of course, if you ask someone if they are happy they will probably reflect on how they feel.
When we avoid feeling, we often lose touch with our real self and our attachment to it. When we feel our emotions, our lives tend to hold more value to us. We care more, want more, love more, grow more and aspire more. The fuller we live our lives, the happier we are, and yet, the more poignant sadness we feel.
Sadness won't go away with AD; if it does, it's just numbness of feelings, although serotonin imbalance will improve with AD and the nasty feelings associated with it. Even depressed, sadness may eventually occur -it's just part of life and it won't last forever, and may be a great step to growing emotionally.
