I Just Want To Feel Better

May 13, 2024

Ever found yourself thinking, "If only I could feel a bit better, everything would be okay"? John dives into this headfirst, sharing some raw stories about the quick fixes he sought in confession and men's groups, recalling moments in his life after getting out of prison where he found himself missing the grace he felt in the jail cell.

This week, John and Victor are unpacking a topic that hits home for a lot of us. Ever found yourself thinking, “If only I could feel a bit better, everything would be okay”? John dives into this headfirst, sharing some raw stories about the quick fixes he sought in confession and men’s groups, recalling moments in his life after getting out of prison where he found himself missing the grace he felt in the jail cell.

But here’s the real talk—feeling better isn’t the same as being better. John and Victor get into why Christianity is more than just a comfort blanket; it’s about real, tough changes that last. They bring up some serious wisdom from St. Catherine of Siena, who said, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enduring much.” It’s about sticking it out through the hard stuff to see real change.

They also lean into some deep truths from St. Paul in Ephesians 4, challenging us to shift our mindset and gear up for the long haul. It’s all about ditching the cycle of feel-good moments and stepping into sustained growth. Because when you start truly becoming better, feeling better just comes naturally.

So, pull up a chair, grab your headphones, and get ready to get real with us about making changes that stick. Let’s break the cycle together and find out what it truly means to transform. Join us for a heart-to-heart on turning those “I just want to feel better” moments into a journey of becoming truly better.
