Episode Summary

Life is full of contrast, conflict, and even catastrophe. We are never going to be able to control the world or the people in it, and that can feel scary until we understand that life is designed that way for our maximum growth.

In today’s episode I am talking about your emotional wellness, how you can take care of yourself and take charge of your emotional life so that you can feel how you want, even when don’t control anything outside of you. Here are three important principles that I think will make a huge difference in the amount of peace and emotional wellness you can create in your life.

Episode Tools and Questions

We are never going to be able to control the world or the people in it, and so I want to talk to you about the tools that can help you find peace even when you control so little. As you know, you actually control nothing outside of you, but when you understand how to control and manage your own emotional life, you can get to peace any time you want.

You aren’t supposed to be happy all the time.
You were never supposed to be happy all the time. You were supposed to come to a fallen world. You were supposed to have a physical, human experience in a fallen world that was designed on purpose to have both happiness and sorrow.

This isn’t heaven. This is earth. This is the fall. This is where we learn to be heaven. And we can’t learn it by being in heaven, we can only learn it in a world of contrast.

The purposes of God for your life are fulfilled in the contrast between happiness and misery. You need both of them to have joy and be able to reach your eternal potential. And out of love God created the opportunity for you to have that experience. He wanted to give you the chance for joy. And you are supposed to feel the contrast and feel all the negative emotions of a fallen world at least 50% of the time. You aren’t doing it wrong.

So that is the first principle of emotional wellness. You live in a fallen world and that means you are supposed to be unhappy half of the time. And I hope you feel a whole lot more peace knowing that it is supposed to be hard at least 50% of the time.

You have been given the gift of agency.
God’s plan is to send everyone to earth with the ability to choose. This means inherently that as people make choices, it’s going to impact the other people. We aren’t here choosing alone. We are here choosing together. Which means that there will be consequences from our choices and sometimes that will impact other people.

And obviously, that feels a little vulnerable. Because if other people can make choices, their choices might impact our peace. But peace is a choice. It is something we create within us by exercising our agency. Every feeling you feel in this fallen world is created by you. Your thoughts create the feelings in your body and depending on the thought you think, determines how you will feel. Every feeling is a choice. It is created by the things you think.

And when you understand that peace is a choice, that you get to make anytime you want, then you can use your agency to create peace no matter what happens. No other person can violate our agency. Because we always get to choose the interpretation of our life. And how we think about it, will determine our feelings and the amount of peace we have.

You are supposed to do it wrong.
You are supposed to do it wrong. Doing it wrong is the plan of God. I know we think the plan is choose the right, but it’s not. It’s choose the wrong until you learn enough to choose the right. It’s practice choosing and choose wrong until you have the ability and the skill and the power to choose the right. And you get to practice as much as you need.

We hurt ourselves and destroy our peace when we think we’re supposed to do it right. And I think it’s just a misunderstanding of God’s plan. The learning is way more important than the

And it doesn’t mean we don’t care about our choices, but it means that we can stop beating ourselves up and hurting ourselves with the thought that we are supposed to choose the right. You are learning in the exact ways you need to and God in his infinite mercy covers that learning. And that is the plan.

Episode Transcript

Welcome to the 100% Awesome Podcast with April Price, you might not know it, but every result in your life is 100% because of the thought you think. And that, my friends, is 100% awesome.

Hello, podcast universe! Welcome to episode 103 of the 100% Awesome Podcast. I'm April Price, and I want to welcome you to the podcast if you want to feel better, if you want to love your life, if you want to be empowered to do all the things that you want to do with your amazing life, then you are in the right place. The other day, David asked me if I ever thought about changing the name of the podcast, and I was like, no I haven't thought of that. And he said, well, maybe more people would find if they knew what it was about, like 100% Awesome, doesn't tell much about what it is like Marketing 101, probably, right? But how do I say in a couple of words that like, hey, you want to feel better, you want to live your life, you want to be empowered to do all the things you want to do with your amazing life in one title of a podcast? I just can't do it. So, I just think, like, your life is 100% awesome, and you are capable, and powerful enough to create anything else in your life that you want. And what could be more awesome than that? Nothing. So yeah, it's 100% awesome, I don't know any other way to say it.

My assistant put all of your names in like a random winner generator, and the winners are Running Jane, and Savvy Mick.

And then if you love that, if you love coaching with me, and you love that experience, then you can sign up for a spot in the upcoming June session. I just this morning had the weekly session with my January group, and it was once again so freaking amazing!

3:09
I love my coaching group so much and the coaching is just so good. And I know that sounds kind of arrogant, but honestly, I feel like I am just a spectator to all of it. My clients bring the things that are causing them pain, right? And as we coach together, we peel back the layers of their brain, and find out what's really the cause there, right? It's never the thing they think, it's never the thing outside of us, it's always the way we're thinking. And so, as we, like, go through that process together, it just is like sort of a regulatory experience. Even for me as the coach, because they have the answers inside of them, I don't have the answers for their life, but they already know it. And when we can peel back their brain long enough to be able to see the things that they really want in their life, it's just the most amazing experience together. And I love to be a witness to it. And I think every one of you should have the experience of being coached, and seeing the power that you have over your own life, no matter what the circumstances, no matter what other human beings do. It is so awesome. So really, you should join me in June, it will change your life, and you deserve to live that life.

Okay, so today in today's episode, I wanted to talk to you about your emotional wellness. How you take care of yourself, and take charge of your emotional life so that you can feel how you want in your life, even when you live in a world that is full of challenge, and conflict, contradiction, and catastrophe. Like we are never going to be able to control the world or the people in it, this is very bad news, I know it. But I want to talk to you about the tools that you have within you that can help you find peace even when you have so little control over the world. As you know, you actually control nothing outside of you. But when you understand how to manage, and control what's inside of you, your own emotional life, you can get to peace any time you want.

Okay, so a little bit over a month ago, I gave a talk at a Stake Relief Society meeting, which is just a gathering of women from many of the nearby congregations of my faith. And I was asked to speak about how we find this kind of emotional wellness, how we find peace no matter what is happening in the world, and in our lives, and I thought the things that I talked about that night might be really valuable to you, too. And so, I wanted to share some of that talk with you, and talk about these things that I think will really improve, and increase your own emotional wellness. And admittedly, because this episode is adapted from that talk, which was given in the church setting, that there are going to be plenty of references to God and his plan. And almost all of the examples I'm going to use are going to come from the scriptures. And so, if that is not for you, you can just skip this episode, and catch me on the next one. Okay, this may not be for everyone, and that is okay, right? I love you all.

So, as some of you have been listening for a while already know, about five or six years ago, I was really, really miserable. I felt like I had a lot of problems, and most of them were self-inflicted, but some of the problems for sure, I thought were caused by the world that I lived in. I worried about my kids, and their choices, and their futures. And I had some health challenges. I had some back problems. I felt like my husband was like kind of too busy for me, he didn't listen to me, he didn't help, right? He didn't love me the way I thought he should. A lot of the problems that I had, I thought were caused by me, and a lot of the mistakes that I had made, right? We had a lot of debt, and we didn't own a home. And I had some difficult relationships with some of my family members. I felt like I was always really angry, and critical. And that made me feel far from God, and from, like a Christ-like, God-like person.

And so, then I thought he must be really disappointed in me, and the way that I was living my life, and that I had pretty much blown my Earth-life experience. And so, I spent a lot of time just worrying about everything that had gone wrong in my life, all the ways I had done it wrong, and everything that could possibly go wrong in the future. And when you kind of imagine me in that miserable state, and the worst part of all of that misery for me was that I knew I should be happy, I had a beautiful life, I had a perfect life. I had everything I needed, right? I had a family, I had a roof over my head, I had food in my cupboard, I had running water, I had temple covenants, I had the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the Savior. Like what could go wrong? Like, I had no good reason to be so miserable. And I just knew that on top of everything else, I was bad, and wrong, and ungrateful for not being happy. I knew that God wanted me to be happy, but I was so broken, and selfish, and ungrateful, and bad that I couldn't be.

And maybe some of you can relate to this, right? Like, I felt bad, and then, I felt really bad for feeling bad, just not a great combination. So, I did not have a lot of peace, or emotional wellness, you can imagine. And somehow all of these, like negative feelings were always worse at night, right And as David was like snoring blissfully beside me, I would kind of like stare into the abyss, and wonder how everything had gone so wrong. And it would make like an exhaustive catalog of all my mistakes, and failures. And I would worry about the million ways that it could fall apart in front of me in my future. And it got so bad that I couldn't sleep, right? My regret on the one hand, and then, my terror for the future, on the other hand, would take turns keeping me up at night, right? It was like regret, and terror, regret, and terror, and I just could not sleep.

And so I started watching QVC, right? And I watched it every night really regularly. As I listen to those hosts, they would describe like the handbag, or this magic cleaning product, or tennis bracelets, right? It would kind of like lull me to sleep. And it got so that, like, I knew what shows would play at 2:00 in the morning, or 3:00 in the morning. I knew the names of all the hosts. I knew the schedule, and when the jewelry shows would be, which was like my favorite time, because it just like lulled me to sleep, right? And like the home repair shows, I hated those ones. Anyway, like, I just I knew so much about QVC, right? And somehow listening to QVC and like the descriptions, they would make an intricate details of these, like tiny little details about products would distract me enough from my fear, and my regret, enough that I could fall asleep.

9:59
And so, I found distraction. But it certainly wasn't peace, right? And I think that it's that way for a lot of us. We have found ways to sort of cope, to kind of numb ourselves, and get by, and distract ourselves enough to get through the day, or get through the night, but really were pretty miserable. And we don't have peace. And then we have a whole bunch of shame about being so miserable, about being unhappy, and we have this story that. We shouldn't be okay, so one of the very first things I learned when I found coaching that started to change this for me was the idea that I wasn't supposed to be happy all the time, and I wasn't wrong, or bad for being unhappy. And I know that, like, maybe that doesn't sound revolutionary to you, but for me, it really, truly was. Because, remember, I was unhappy, but I was also ashamed of that, and angry at myself for being unhappy. And so, this one thought that I was supposed to be unhappy at least half the time, removed a whole layer of pain that I had put on top of my unhappiness.

So, that is the first thing I want you to know for your emotional wellness. I want you to know that you aren't supposed to be happy all the time. Okay, so I know that's going to come as a shock, and maybe for your moment, you're like April, how is that helpful? How is that keeping me emotionally well? But I think that this can be so useful to you. It was such an incredible relief to me to figure out that I was never supposed to be happy all the time, that God had set it up that way. And he didn't even expect me to be happy all the time, and that I wasn't doing it wrong because I was unhappy. You were never supposed to be happy all the time. You were supposed to come to a fallen world full of contrast. You were supposed to be a physical human in a fallen world that was designed, on purpose, to have both happiness and sorrow. It was supposed to be painful, and delightful. It was supposed to be joyful, and excruciating.

And when we tell ourselves we're supposed to be happy, and we beat ourselves up for feeling the contrast provided by the fall, we are condemning ourselves for the fall. We're punishing ourselves for Adam's choice. And really, we are making ourselves wrong for the plan of God. I think I recently told you when I was interviewing David like a few podcasts back, that when David and I got married, I had the inside of his wedding ring inscribed with the words "Welcome to Heaven," because that's what I totally thought. Like, I thought it was going to be heaven, and I thought it was even supposed to be Heaven, right? But this isn't heaven. This is Earth. This is the fall. This is where we learn to choose Heaven, but we can't learn it by being in Heaven. We can only learn how to do that in a world of contrast. So, there is a prophet named Lehi, and he said that there has to be an opposition like a contrast in everything. And he said that if it wasn't that way, if there wasn't an opposition, then everything that was created would have remained in that same state that they were created in, and they would have remained there forever. Meaning they never would be able to change, we wouldn't be able to grow.

If we didn't live in a world of contrast where there was 50% positive and 50% negative, then we would remain the same, there would be no progress. And God's plan is a plan of progress. There's a really famous scripture where Lehi says, "Adam fell that men might be, and men are, that they might have joy." And I think that where joy means the opportunity to progress, the opportunity to become, he wants to give us the chance to grow, and become. And that is what each of us have been given by coming to a world of opposition, where it's not all happy. We have been given a chance for joy, which means a chance to not stay the same, but to become a little more like him, and reach our eternal potential. And Lehi is really adamant about this. He goes on to say that if it was all happy, if it was all ease, and comfort, and bliss, and enjoyment, which is sometimes what we think we want, he said, then the whole thing would have been for nothing.

14:31
The scripture says "It must needs have been created for a thing of not. Wherefore there would have been no purpose in the end of its creation." I want you to understand that that without the contrast, without a world that was both happy, and sad, there would be no purpose in the creation of this world. God's whole purpose was to grow you, and he does that in this world of contrast. And that means it's going to be disappointing while you're here, it's going to be hard. Your heart is going to break, because he wanted to give you a chance not to remain the same, but to become more like him. He wanted to give you a chance for joy, and you are supposed to feel the contrast of that and, feel all the negative emotions of a fallen world. At least 50% of the time you aren't doing it wrong. Okay, so that is the first principle of emotional wellness, you live in a fallen world and that means you are supposed to be unhappy half of the time. I hope you feel a whole lot more peace knowing that it's supposed to be hard, and you were supposed to be miserable. That's the word that Lehi uses, miserable, at least 50% of the time.

The next thing that I want you to know, the second kind of principle here of emotional wellness is that you have been given the gift of agency, the right to choose. And I know, again, you're, like, astounded by these groundbreaking insights, right? Like, I'm supposed to be sad, and God gave me the ability to choose. You're like, great, I feel awesome. Okay, so you might be saying, like, I already know I have agency, and it's not helping. It's not helping me have more emotional wellness to know that I get to choose. But I want to challenge you to think about your agency different than you ever have before. I want you to think about the plan of God for a minute. His plan is to send everyone to Earth with the ability to choose, okay? And this means inherently that as people make choices, it's going to impact the other people that they live with, right?

Like we aren't here choosing alone, we are here choosing together, which means that there are going to be consequences from our choices that will sometimes impact other people, right? Like, I like to imagine we're like on this huge pool table, and when one ball rolls into the other, then we start banging into all the other balls, right? And you can't actually make any action without impacting another ball on the table, right? David and I were just watching a movie recently where the woman was talking about how we are in a circle, that we as humans, we live in a circle. We are all connected, and we can never act without impacting one another, right? And obviously that feels a little vulnerable knowing like everybody's actions impact me, right? Because if other people can make choices, their choices, might impact my emotional wellness. And if I make the wrong choices, I might impact somebody else's, right? And that feels a little bit scary because I don't know about you, but I don't always make great choices. And you are all in trouble if you live in the world with me. And I can impact your peace, and your emotional wellness.

Okay, so here's what I want you to know. I want you to know that peace in any situation, no matter what's banging into you, is a choice. It is something we create within us by exercising our agency. Every feeling you feel in this fallen world is created by you. Your thoughts create all the feelings you ever have in your body, including peace. Every feeling then becomes a choice, it is created by the things you think, like when I felt regret, and terror on those QVC nights, it was because the thoughts I chose were all about how I had failed, and how God is disappointed, and how many things could go wrong in my future. There was no way to feel peace when I was thinking those thoughts. And when you understand that peace is a choice that you cannot make any time you want, regardless of what's happening around you, then you can use your agency to create that peace whenever you want it.

Like other people do get to act, things get to happen in the world, viruses get to spread, schools get shut down, husbands get to cheat, children get to disobey, all that is allowed, right? And none of those things impact our peace until we use our agency to choose thoughts that create something other than peace. Now, the example that I use a lot when I talk about this is Joseph who was sold into Egypt, right? He was born into a family of 11 brothers who were all given the gift of agency, right? Which means they got to act and it would bang into Joseph, right? And they did not like him, they wanted him dead. And so, you know, the story he got sold into Egypt, right? And I want you to notice that as Joseph's brothers exercised their agency, it impacted Joseph, right? This is not agency in a vacuum. This is agency in a fallen world, and the choices that Joseph's brothers are making in that moment are changing his life in significant ways.

19:58
And we're kind of like, wait a minute, in the scriptures, like Lehi tells his sons that there are things that act, and things that are acted upon. And he tells his sons, like, God made you a being that acts, not a thing that is acted upon. But here's Joseph, and it really seems like he is being acted upon by his brothers. But God gave each of us the right to act for ourselves, and no one can take that gift away from us. Your agency is to choose in every circumstance in your life, no matter what anybody else does, no matter what happens in the world. Your agency is to choose your experience in those circumstances, to choose how you think about what happens to you, and that will create your emotional experience of whatever is happening, right? Victor Frankl, who is an Austrian psychiatrist, and philosopher, and he survived the Holocaust in the concentration camps. He wrote, after that experience, everything can be taken from a man but one thing, the last of the human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances. To choose one's own way, he said, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."

That is what you came to learn to do, and you always get to choose, and whatever choice you make, that's going to create your experience, and your peace. So, in Joseph's case, like the apocryphal writings say that when he first got sold by his brothers, the thoughts he chose were devastating. He was heartbroken that his brothers had done this, right? He's traveling to Egypt and the Midianites like, keep beating him trying to get him to stop crying. He's just like won't stop crying. He's devastated, right? He doesn't have peace. He's in torment. He can only see in that moment that everything has gone wrong. And that it has not gone according to plan, and he is heartbroken. He is just so deeply devastated, and disappointed, and the circumstances seem hopeless. And I'm sure in that moment that peace felt utterly illusive to him. And that wasn't the end of Joseph's troubles. He spent some time as a slave. He spent some time in jail. Like, fun times!

But eventually he becomes a ruler in Egypt, and he sees his brothers. And what does he say to them? In between his sobs, he says it was not you that sent me hither, but God, his thoughts about that circumstance had changed completely. Okay, now, of course, God didn't make Joseph's brothers sell him to the Midianites. Like if Joseph's brothers had chosen to love him, God would have found another way. God doesn't make people do wrong, or cause tragedy, or disaster. But he uses these things, he uses the banging into each other to teach us how to use our agency and, choose love. He uses the natural consequences that happen from living in a natural world with other people who make choices to teach us, and help us to learn, and grow.

The fall. And the agency that we have each been given have provided that mechanism of learning that we each need. And through all of that, he holds our individual agency sacred. So, no matter what happens, no other person can violate your agency because we always get to choose the interpretation of our life when things don't go the way we want, or the way that we think they should. Our thoughts about those circumstances are what matter. Those thoughts can change how we feel, and no feeling can happen to you without you first having had a thought about it, because you are not a being that is acted upon, you are being that acts. And I don't say that to condemn you, or have you think like, okay you just need to think about it differently so that you can feel peace. God gave you the power to choose, and that is the best news I have for you. It doesn't mean that you have to choose peace, but it means that you can. It doesn't mean that you should choose peace, but it means that you can.

24:22
And so many times we just don't realize that we are even making a choice, it's just sort of feels like our experience is happening to us, and we're feeling the way we do because of the experience itself. And I want you to know for sure that whatever you are choosing is fine. It doesn't make you wrong or bad, or unworthy. But I also want you to know that it is always a choice, and any time you want to choose a different experience, you get to

Okay, so you're not supposed to be happy all the time, and you have been given the gift of agency. The last principle of emotional wellness that I want to give you is the idea that you are supposed to do it wrong. You are supposed to do it wrong. Okay let me just like, put your mind at ease. Doing it wrong is the plan of God. I know that you think the plan is choose the right, but it is not. The plan is choose the wrong, choose the wrong, choose the wrong, until you learn enough to choose the right. It's practicing, choosing, and choosing wrong until you have the ability, and the skill, and the power, and the knowledge to choose the right. And you get to practice as much as you need, as much as you need. That's the plan, choose, and choose, and choose wrong, until you practice enough to choose right. And if I could give you one thing, it would be to know that God is not disappointed if you are doing it wrong.
Disappointment is only created when our expectations don't match up with reality, where there's a discrepancy between what we expected, and what is actually happening. And here's the thing. God never expected you to do it right. He expected you to do it wrong. That was the plan, and he is not disappointed. Everything, everything is going according to plan, even you, and every mistake you make. We hurt ourselves, and destroy our peace when we think we're supposed to do it right, and I just think it's a misunderstanding of God's plan.

In the New Testament Christ says to the woman taken in sin, "Neither do I condemn thee." And I like to imagine him saying that to me every day. There's a really famous story in my church history, and I know I've probably shared it here on the podcast before, but at one point the prophet Joseph Smith was translating the Book of Mormon, and he lost the translation. He lost one hundred and sixteen, of those pages and made this big mistake. And God, in his wisdom, provided a way around that mistake. But I like to go back, and recognize that if God didn't want that mistake made at all, he could have prevented it. Like if Joseph was supposed to choose the right, God could have made sure that happened. He could have not given him the plates altogether, or taken the manuscript and hidden it, or sent an angel to block their path, right? Like he could have provided a way in which the mistake was never made. But I believe, in fact, that Joseph was supposed to make that mistake. There were things that Joseph could learn in no other way. There were things that he needed to learn about pleasing men before God, and listening to the Council of Men, all of which he would need to know later.

And what I take from that is that God cares more about our education, and our growth than whether, or not we do it right. He is trying to grow us, and doing it wrong, and learning from it is the way. It is not a problem, it is the plan. The learning is way more important than getting it right. It's likely, he said in the beginning, we can't know how to choose the good if we don't first know to choose the bad. And God didn't provide a Savior who made an atonement as a backup. In case you made mistakes, he provided a Savior so you could make the exact mistakes you needed to. Like he didn't give us our agency thinking, okay, I'm going to do this, but hopefully they'll get it all right, right? Like, he was like, oh, shoot, I didn't think that through, right? Like, agency was the plan. And then, learning to choose through painful experience was the way.

So, when one of my daughters was in high school, I got a call from another mother explaining that my daughter had been unkind to her child, and immediately, right? Like my brain wanted to think that this was a terrible thing, that my daughter had done this, and had made this mistake, and that somehow, of course, then I had made terrible mistakes as her mother, and the way that I had raised her, and taught her. And in that moment, I had all this anxiety, and pain because I thought she shouldn't mess up, and I shouldn't mess up. And then, I remembered, wait a minute, of course we are. And probably both things are true. We had probably both done it wrong. My daughter had surely made some mistakes using her agency, and I had surely made a million more than that using my agency as her mother. And together we would probably make a million more before all of this is said and done. But we were supposed to. This is how we were learning. We were using our agency to choose, and learn, choose, and learn, and in the meantime, Christ's atonement would allow us to practice, and choose as many times as we needed to get it right. And when I remembered that neither of us were supposed to get it right, I got to peace.

29:59
We're going to mess it up, and we're supposed to, it's 100% okay. It is the way. And God is never disappointed in this. He knows that it is all going according to plan, including all that you do wrong. It is not a problem, it is the plan. And that doesn't mean that we don't care about our choices, but it means that we can stop beating ourselves up, and hurting ourselves with the thought that we're supposed to choose the right. You are learning in the exact ways you need to, and God in his infinite mercy covers that learning. That is what atonement means in Hebrew, "Kippur" right, to cover. He covers our learning process, and we get to do it wrong as many times as it takes to do it right. That is the miracle. That is the deepest love that exists, and that is the plan.

You live in a fallen world, and it's not easy. There are going to be plenty of difficult circumstances ahead, and they're going to be plenty of people in your life using their agency in ways that bang into you. But you have been given agency to choose peace whenever you want to, regardless of what is happening around you, and regardless of other people's choices. You get to choose peace and you get to do it by exercising your agency in the way that you think. And you aren't always going to get that choice right. And that is 100% okay, this is the place where we practice. The most peaceful thing I can tell you is that no matter what, everything is going to be okay, no matter how many mistakes you make, no matter how much practice you need because of Jesus Christ, it will all be made right in the end.

You aren't supposed to be happy all the time. That isn't the plan. Everyone has agency, including you, which means that no matter what others do, you get to choose your experience and you get to choose any feeling you want and you are supposed to do it wrong. You were supposed to do it wrong until you learn to do it right. If you remember these three things, you can have emotional wellness and you can create peace no matter what happens in your life. And that, my friends, is 100% awesome. I love you for listening and I'll see you next week.
