Today’s episode is a part 3 in a 5-part series called The 5 Stages of Cancer Grief, and today’s segment is all about Bargaining. Bargaining, along with the associated guild, is an attempt to negotiate your way out of the grief event into what you imagine would be a better reality. I’ll teach you how to identify and cope with bargaining, and help you return to the present moment in a constructive way.
What You’ll Learn From this Episode:
+ Why your brain wants to bargain
+ The telltale signs that you’re bargaining
+ How to exit a bargaining thought loop
+ An exercise to help shift obsessive “if only” thoughts
+ Truth & Dare Quote: The truth is that while bargaining is a normal stage of grief, it’s also a way of trying to avoid experiencing the actual emotion of grief.
