Keeping yourself unhappy

I have a friend who is the songwriter and front-man of a band aspiring to make it big. He once said to me: "People sometimes accuse me of staying unhappy so that I can write better songs". I didn't believe them. He did.

And it's true. I've mentioned this before, but it is easier to write passionately and meaningfully when you are unhappy. When you want change. When you've been obsessing over something that you can't let go of.

So when you're happy, it's easy to have thinker's block.
