What’s the goal of life – one of life’s biggest mysteries. And leave it to Audrey O. to begin finding the simplest answers to them. Discover her finding purpose in life, in happiness and sadness.
Hey! Not all days are happy. Isn’t this the life’s biggest truth, that is often not discussed. Sadness is as much a part of life as happiness is, and yet it’s sometimes overlooked, stigmatized, especially by commercial cinema, media, especially fashion magazines! And isn’t that why we love Audrey O. So real and raw she is, that sometimes we hate how much we can relate to her!
Audrey O. (Vol.2 E2) – Finding Purpose in Life
I made this comic as a single sketch first, that I published on Audrey O.’s Instagram page. However, I was surprised at the amount of criticism it received. “Why is she sad?” everyone kept asking me, even though sad Audrey is something we’ve seen countless times throughout this comic series. And that left me wondering, why does sadness have to be associated with negativity all the time?
Occasional sadness is not an indicator of one’s overall happiness. In fact, you’ll find that most fully functioning adults experience occasional sadness, and it’s only natural. Even mentally healthy. For those who can’t experience joy and sadness have often forgotten to live. This is a topic I recently dealt with in my article: What is Happiness & Why is It Elusive? Can You Choose Happiness?
Audrey O. isn’t afraid to show her emotions. We’ve seen her cry, be angry, be lazy, be bored, elated and express it all! Well, maybe we only see her exaggerated emotions ’cause I draw them so! But either way, don’t be afraid of sadness. Instead, let it help you understand what makes you happy. Let it help you appreciate joy. And let it help you finding purpose in life.
So today’s comic was a little different, but I hope you enjoyed it. It wasn’t funny like the other episodes, but I hope it helps you in finding purpose in life. 🙂
