Wiggle Room Podcast: Episode 21

They Are Inconsiderate With My Schedule + Do You Suffer From Competing Desires?

They Are Inconsiderate With My Schedule

In this episode of the Wiggle Room Podcast, a participant in one of my Open Sessions is preparing for surgery and expresses her frustration with the way the hospital communicated with her. At first they told her she needed a week off, but then changed it to two weeks, causing a scheduling conflict for her clients.

Open Session Recording

The dialogue in the first half of this episode is taken from one of my weekly Open Sessions. You can be a participant in Open Sessions each week to do The Work with me or ask your questions.

Listen as this participant does The Work on the thought, “They should be more considerate.” Can you find a similar experience in your own life? This is an unedited recording so you can experience how I do The Work in real life with any stressful thought that comes up.

Newsletter Text

In the second half of the recording, I read my article, “Do You Suffer From Competing Desires?” During the reading, I add a few things that come to mind in addition to the text I wrote. 

I encourage you to subscribe to my newsletter to get new articles like this one each week.
