This isn't therapy -- it's a discussion about foreboding joy. Coined by Dr. Brene Brown, foreboding joy is described as that moment when joy is interrupted by thoughts of “but what if something bad happens.” In this two-part episode, Jake and Simon discuss the ways we avoid feeling extremely happy to avoid feeling extremely disappointed.
