Episode 164: Trying to be happy all the time is making you sad

Episode 164: Trying to be happy all the time is making you sad

Do you find yourself always trying to be happy? When we tell ourselves we should be happy (and we’re not) it actually makes us so unhappy. What happens when we stop resisting the part of life that is hard, we suddenly feel so much better. It’s so ironic. Thinking we should be happy makes us sad, and telling ourselves it’s ok to be sad allows for less sadness. I wish I could insert a mind blowing emoji right here. Listen to the rest of this episode to find out what that looks like to just be ok with being unhappy sometimes.

Ready to stop feeling angry at your husband

before he even walks through the door at night?

Not keeping score doesn’t require you to keep quiet and silently seeth while doing everything on your own. It does help you let go of anger and resentment and focus on solutions instead of scoreboards. It means you make room for working together instead of feeling isolated and alone.
