The Roots of Sadness

John and Lynn discuss how sadness is a bittersweet emotion (John’s favorite!), and is necessary for us to experience so we don’t get stuck. We face losses everyday: loss of beauty, health, control, influence, loved ones, hopes and dreams. Our sadness can quickly turn into deep sorrow and anguish when we face devastating loss. 

The painful feeling of regret naturally occurs when we look back on the past and replay the events that have taken place, wondering how we could have avoided the pain of things we are powerless to change. 

This episode is an insightful and challenging discussion about feelings that we try to avoid, but that can actually connect us more deeply to the heart of God and others.
