It’s completely normal to prefer one emotion to another.
I’d rather feel happy than sad.
Joyful rather than frustrated.
Satisfied over anxious.
However, the problem arises when we teach ourselves that there’s something wrong with us if every step of the path isn’t filled with delight.
No matter how many self-help books you read or seminars you attend, life is difficult and it will rattle you.
Focus on showing up today as best you can, and as authentically and honestly as you know how.
The rest of the journey will take care of itself.
