Go Out For A Walk: Just to sort out what is melancholy from sadness?

Posted on: May 20, 2023

By: Albert Camus

Find meaning. 
Distinguish melancholy 
from sadness. 

Go out for a walk. 

It doesn’t have to be a 
romantic walk in the park, 
spring at its most 
spectacular moment, 
flowers and smells 
and outstanding poetical 
imagery smoothly transferring
you into another world. 

It doesn’t have to be a walk 
during which you’ll have 
multiple life epiphanies 
and discover meanings 
no other brain ever managed 
to encounter. 

Do not be afraid of spending 
quality time by yourself. 

Find meaning 
or don’t find meaning 
but 'steal' some time and 
give it freely and exclusively 
to your own self. 

Opt for privacy and solitude. 

That doesn’t make you antisocial 
or cause you to reject the 
rest of the world. 

But you need to breathe. 
And you need to be.
