Expanding our view of joy

“What if joy is not only entangled with pain, or suffering, or sorrow, but is also what emerges from how we care for each other through those things? What if joy, instead of refuge or relief from heartbreak, is what effloresces from us as we help each other carry our heartbreaks?” ~Ross Gay

Joy can be found in unexpected places when we look for it. Recognizing it in these unlikely moments can help make it easier to motivate ourselves to support one another through our heartbreaks.
