“Joy isn’t happiness. Joy isn’t the absence of sadness, grief or depression. Joy isn’t pretending everything is ok when it really isn’t. CS Lewis called joy “the experience of an inconsolable longing” and “the experience of an unsatisfied desire which is itself more desirable than any other satisfaction” The experience of an unsatisfied desire which is itself more desirable than any other satisfaction. That rings true with my experience of joy. An inconsolable longing that is never fully satisfied but without which I would be lost, broken, alone and spiritually destitute.”
