Erica Campbell talks about how sometimes, when we’re upset about something, we can be resistant to the positivity and the love around that is trying to penetrate your bubble of sadness and lift you up. Erica recalls a story of her own heartbreak when she was younger, sulking after a break-up with a boy. She says her dad came in and began trying to make her laugh, but her instinct was first to resist the joy he was trying to bring to her situation.
She explains why, when you’re feeling down and somebody is trying to cheer you up, whether it be a father, an uncle or just the holy spirit trying to lift you up, you should let the joy in! Don’t wait until you’re ‘done’ wallowing in pain- let the love saturate you. Click on the audio player to hear more in this Love Talk on “Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell.”
