Ep #48: Part 5: The 5 Stages of Cancer Grief: Acceptance

Mar 17, 2020

Today’s episode is a part 5 in a 5-part series called The 5 Stages of Cancer Grief, and today’s segment is all about Acceptance. When it comes to cancer, acceptance does not mean you reach a point of, “it’s all great,” but that you reach a point of, “I’m living and dealing with cancer.” Full stop. I’ll teach you how to arrive to acceptance, and help you return to it so you can spend more hours and days in the present moment while constructively moving forward.


What You’ll Learn From this Episode:

What acceptance is - and isn’t

Why acceptance improves emotional health

Two strategies to help you move into acceptance

Why you can’t “fake it ‘til you make it” with acceptance

Truth & Dare Quote: When you reach the acceptance of your cancer, you open the door to a deeper acceptance of yourself.
