Hi!
I'm reading this book "Le Voyage d'Hector" about a psychiatrist who went on a journey to find out what happiness is, and I don't get the sentence in bold.
Il se sentait un peu malheureux. Mais au fond, être malheureux, ça pouvait aussi lui apprendre quelque chose sur le bonheur. Au moins ça servirait pour son voyage.Il commença à réfléchir: pourquoi il était malheureux?

I thought it meant "At least it would be useful for his journey", but I don't see why, so I wanted to make sure if I understand it right. Maybe I misunderstood it?

    I think your interpretation is right, it would be useful because it could teach him something about hapiness (ça pouvait aussi lui apprendre quelque chose sur le bonheur).
