Cherophobia, foreboding joy, the fear of being happy...Sometimes after prolonged trauma, it's hard to trust that something good might happen to us. And it's even harder to trust that we deserve it. I don't know about you, but I am always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I expect the worst and hope for the best. Even when something good happens, I wait for it to implode because history tells me that this is so.

Are you afraid of being happy? Do you ever assume nothing will work out so that you aren't disappointed? Share below.
