Don’t Let THIS Steal Your Joy

Do you ever feel like you can’t celebrate or be sad because you might hurt someone else’s feelings? Maybe you’re sad but you know “someone has it worse,” or you got a promotion, but you don’t want to be too happy because someone out there lost their job. Of course you’ve felt that way. We all have. That’s why we’re talking about how you have permission to feel your feelings. Today, I’m chatting with my good friend and fellow Ramsey Personality Dr. John Delony to dig into this on a deeper level. Then, we’ll finish out with some journal questions.

You’re Unhappy, and THIS Might Be Why

I’ve seen this weird thing going on in our culture. We’ve become so codependent as a culture that we don’t allow anyone to feel anything because it's not something enough. You can't celebrate the blessings in your life for fear of hurting someone else. And by the way, you can’t feel pain either, because you know someone else has it worse.

The truth is, you can honor your feelings and, at the same time, honor the feelings of others. Our tendency to compare our pain is really doing a disservice to everyone. Two things can be true at the same time. You can be happy for someone else and sad for you. You can be happy for yourself and sad for someone else. It doesn't have to be mutually exclusive.

Is This the Root of Your Anxiety?

I’m so excited because my good friend and fellow Ramsey Personality Dr. John Delony is joining us today to talk about:

  • Our culture’s addiction to problems
  • How comparative grief can destroy our relationships
  • The importance of relationships and being present with others

Why You Should Stop Hiding Your Feelings

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another.” — Romans 12:15­–16 (NIV)

We live in a world that’s so polarizing and where everything’s an extreme. And it becomes really difficult to not only honor where you are in your life and your feelings, but also honor others. You can rejoice with people that are rejoicing—even if you don't feel like rejoicing in your own life. You can mourn with people that are mourning—even if you don't have anything to be sad about yourself. You can honor others' feelings and honor your own at the same time.

So, I want to give you some questions to journal and pray about as you apply this to your life:

  1. What’s something you're mourning right now that maybe you've been holding back on because you don't feel like those feelings are valid?
  2. What’s something you're so excited about but scared to share?
  3. How can you honor your feelings this week and, at the same time, honor others' feelings?
