Show Notes S6E16: Is Everyone Happier Than Me? With Sarah Bragg

by | Apr 16, 2024 | The Love Offering Podcast Show Notes

In an age where everyone else’s successes are flaunted in front of you on social media, it can be a struggle to feel true happiness and contentment exactly where you are. Throw in difficult circumstances–loss, heartbreak, change, midlife–and it’s easy to understand why you feel lonely, lost, unsure of yourself, stuck, and, if you’re honest with yourself, flat-out unhappy.


Sarah Bragg is on today’s episode chatting about her book Is Everyone Happier Than Me? She provides practical and relatable answers to the questions you’ve probably already been asking about your life, and poses a few more, to help you figure out what’s standing in the way of your happiness, peace, and connection. Join us as Sarah shares the valuable lessons she’s learned in her own hard seasons to help you:


  • Identify the unhealthy habits you do when you feel unhappy and how to overcome them.

  • Discover simple ways to find peace even in the murky middle of hard seasons.

  • Find new ways to connect with others and yourself.

  • Embrace exactly where you are even as you try to move forward.


It’s time to let go of the ideal of a perfect life and allow yourself to be a work in progress. And there’s no better time to find happiness than right here in the middle.



I was feeling so angsty and frustrated. I felt all the negative feelings, and I didn’t want to feel that way.


This is what I’m feeling, but I wanted to feel happy.


Happiness isn’t a zen state. At the heart of happiness, we are craving connection.


No feeling is final.


Feelings aren’t the enemy.


Gratitude is connected to joy.


We are emotionally illiterate.


Fact-check your feelings.


Be the person who sees people.


What do I need? Start taking baby steps toward that.


Remember to take care of yourself.


Happiness looks different for everyone in other seasons.


Social media gives us a false sense of connection.


Enjoy the life you have.


What made you smile today?


Get out of your head.


What can you do about it?


We are created to be creative.
