If you Numb your Sadness, you Numb your Joy

A few years ago, I was driving home to my beautiful flat in Bury St. Edmunds, England. 

I looked to my left and saw a vivid sunset full of beautiful colors, and realized I felt nothing. At that moment it hit me that for most of my life, I had been numbing myself out. 

I was protecting myself from feeling negative things, and in the process I had blocked myself from experiencing joy and passion. 

I realized at that point that it was time to make a change, and I took off for a journey to discover true happiness.

I'd love to know...are you holding yourself back from experiencing joy? Do you fear happiness? If so, why do you think that is? What's one difficult feeling you have been avoiding, and one way you can begin to work through that feeling?
