In this episode Christy and Rob discuss:

  • The consequence of repressing emotions

  • Embracing joy and sorrow

  • Dealing with repressed emotions

Key Takeaways:

  • Repressing uncomfortable emotions comes at a very steep price. Limitations, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and loneliness are some examples of the consequences that we face when we repress our emotions.

  • Joy and sorrow are two sides of the very same coin and learning how to embrace both is the secret to living a very rich, full, and satisfying life.

  • What you resist, persists. Pretending that you’re not feeling what you’re feeling will only prolong that emotional reaction and lead to more experience, preventing you from transcending that.

“Authenticity is the prerequisite for happiness. Unless we’re being authentic, we can’t experience happiness.” – Christy Whitman
