Playing with Fear in "The Final Destination": The Dating Scaries, Part 1
Show Notes

"I'M WORRIED THAT I WON'T BE ABLE TO BE MYSELF." You asked, and I delivered in this four part mini-series with MINI HALLOWEEN STORIES, because dating can be SCARY y'all. In this episode, you'll play with moments where Fear takes over and holds you back before the date has even begun. Explore your relationship to pre-date fears, coming away with:  

  • Clarity RE how Fear can pull you out of alignment with your values; 
  • Perspective on how Dating can be empowering when it's viewed as a Date with yourself; and,
  • Recognition that honoring our Values matters greatly to our sense of identity.

Whether it's you who struggles with these moments as a trigger or someone you know - we can all use tools to recondition cultural beliefs that aren't realistic or helpful to our personal experience as a human being. It starts with you, so have a journal on hand or a good friend to dialogue with what comes up for you in this episode. And if you can't play with this today? That's okay too. Stay curious. We'll see you later, or in the next episode friend. 🌿
