The positive side to things

Downloaded from Wikipedia
Rachmininoff in the early 1900s

I was listening to Rachmaninoff’s piano concerto no. 2 (in c minor) on youtube, played by the master himself. I was browsing through the comments and came across this interesting piece of information by Laura Ciocoiu and her thoughts on it:

Concerto for Piano and Orchestra no. 2 was written after Rachmaninoff went through depression and after the period that he followed  psychotherapy sessions. The concert was dedicated to Dr. Nikolai Dahl, with which Rachmaninoff surpassed the creative blockage he entered in. Perhaps, without this depression, the concert would not have become the masterpiece.

Depression could be a source of creativity. It is important to see the positive side. In everything is a positive side and a negative one. It is about duality of life and human being…

The last bit “In everything is a positive side and a negative one” is lovely isn’t it? Am I looking at the positive side of the negative situations that I find myself in? What about you?
