Today's Episode

To some the idea that you’d be afraid to feel happy sounds absurd but not to the overthinker. The fear of being utterly content and joy-filled is real because it’s accompanied by the thought of what if this all goes away?

In this episode we look at:

  • Why we feel so scared to be happy
  • How we think we’re protecting ourselves by reining in how joyful we feel
  • What foreboding joy is really doing
  • What we can do to allow ourselves to release the fear and feel the joy we want to
