The word pairs makes me think about the duality of life.
There is light and there is dark.
Right and wrong.
Happy and sad.
Good and bad.
All of these pairs are inextricably linked in such a way that you simply cannot have one without the other.
How could you appreciate happiness if you’ve never experienced sadness?
Everything exists on a spectrum.
Everything has an equal, but opposite counterpart.
The richness of life is found in the contrast.
“The word happy would lose it’s meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” – Carl Jung
