Ep 196 – Denial 4.0

A few months ago I recorded an episode called “Denial 3.0” and said that I had no doubt that in the years to come, I will be recording even more episodes about me coming out of denial as this is a lifelong journey. Who knew that it wouldn’t be in the years to come but actually sooner in the months to come? This week’s episode 196 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is more instances of me coming out of denial!

I often share on the Fragmented to Whole Podcast my own experiences of coming out of denial to illustrate to you what this looks like and to help myself come further out of denial by bringing this stuff out into the open. This week, I’m sharing a couple of examples that have happened in my life recently where others have shed light on my part in things and helped me realize I was doing things I didn’t even realize I was doing. 

I also cover in this episode:

  • The power of acknowledging and thanking someone for helping you come out of denial and apologizing for your actions, no matter how much time has passed. 
  • The ways in which I have been helpful in order to be controlling without even realizing it.
  • Prioritizing impact over intent. 

I want to thank all of the people who are helping me come out of denial and who will come to help me in the future. My hope for you is that hearing my experiences will help you come out of your own denial and if they already have, I would love to hear from you. 

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

Thank you for listening! If you enjoyed this episode, take a screenshot of the episode to post in your stories and tag me!  And don’t forget to follow, rate and review the podcast and tell me your key takeaways!
