My favourite emoticon

:’)

…bittersweet, happy but sad, sad but happy.

It’s the feeling I have for instance now, after a good friend has left, back to her home country. I miss her, but at the same time I’m really happy for the good time we’ve had – she’s had – here.

I hope that I will have plenty of use for this emoticon in the future, not just in relation to her, but in my life in general. I do think happiness can feel more intense and…rewarding, when it is mixed with sadness. This probably has to do with the idea that this is our only life, and in a way I have come to reach the opinion that any strong emotion is better than no emotion at all (within certain limits, of course :p). As a recent lyric by Placebo goes:

A heart that hurts is a heart that works – Placebo, Bright Lights

(that will be my quote of the week, too)
