Playing with Ghosting in "They Call Me Ghost": The Dating Scaries, Part 4
Show Notes

"OMG - THEY GHOSTED ME!" 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 YOU may be ghosting others, or may have been ghosted yourself, due to avoiding Confrontation. Explore your relationship to post date fears, coming away with:  

  • Clarity RE how Ghosting is often an avoidance of confrontation; 
  • Perspective on why Ghosting doesn't offer closure for either party; and,
  • Recognition of how to utilize the Empowered Confrontation tool - only four lines!

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. 🌿
