Playing with Fear in "Dead Silence": The Dating Scaries, Part 2
Show Notes

"I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH SILENCE, CONFRONTATION...NO AWKWARD MOMENTS PLEASE!" You asked, and I delivered in this four part mini-series with MINI HALLOWEEN STORIES, because showing up as yourself can be SCARY y'all. In this episode, you'll play with moments where Fear takes over and holds you back during the date (or other personal conversation). Explore your relationship to mid-date fears, coming away with:  

  • Clarity RE how Fear can hijack you out of self awareness; 
  • Perspective on how to empower yourself to be with your emotions and put yourself in the Driver's Seat; and,
  • Recognition that if you don't give your emotions an avenue to be effectively expressed - they will find an avenue for you, whether you like it or not.

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. 🌿
