The scariness of feeling joy

Gabrielle Treanor


Joy is a lovely feeling, right? The more joy we can feel the better so why am I recording a podcast episode about the scariness of feeling joy? Because sometimes our joy feels so good we’re gripped by the fear of losing what the people, the life, that give us such joy.

In this episode I share:

  • Where our fear of joy comes from
  • How we think we’re protecting ourselves
  • What to do when your joy becomes foreboding


  • Find comfort, understanding and inspiration in The Haven’s weeklyish email letters here
  • Get your free guides and audios to help you live with more calm and joy each day in the free resource library here
  • If you enjoy the podcast I’d love you to leave a review on iTunes so that others can find it too
  • If you value what I share in the podcast, and elsewhere, you can buy me a virtual cuppa here
