Considered by some to be the opposite of happiness, sorrow encompasses a wide range of feelings that are considered undesirable. Many people spend a great deal of time, effort, and mood altering chemicals avoiding this feeling. But sorrow is a necessary part of human existence. Much of it comes directly from the very best parts of our lives; we grieve when love and happiness are removed from our lives. The death of a loved one, the move of a friend, the loss of trust. Sorrow serves a vital purpose that helps us.
Sorrow goes by other names, some more intense than others, including: sadness, depression, despair, unhappy, grief, misery, disappointment, dismay, displeasure, embarrassment, humiliation, and insecurity.
