Joy is not disloyal

“Don’t be concerned about being disloyal to your pain by being joyous.” ~Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

We are capable of feeling many emotions at once. Just because you may be grieving, hurting, or suffering from trauma doesn’t mean you can’t also experience joy or other positive emotions at the same time. Your pain doesn’t need you to be “loyal” to it by suppressing those positive emotions. Let yourself feel all of them!
