When we hear the word "happy," the words that come to our minds are joy, pleasure, and contentment. But, as with everything in life, antonyms exist. The antonyms for happy are sadness, grief, sorrow, depression, and misery. If we constantly suppress negative emotions, we become unbalanced, mentally and emotionally. It's crucial to give as much credit to our feelings of disappointment, sadness, and unhappiness because those emotions serve a significant purpose.

Negativity has its place and importance, and it's a part of life; we'll never appreciate the good times and happiness without experiencing the bad.
