Episode 60: Why We Share Our Stories
The main goal of the Unspoken Cancer Truths podcast is to provide a space where those impacted by cancer can come to share their stories, and connect with others who share similar experiences. I’ve found that giving meaning to your cancer journey by talking about it can help you to process your experiences in a way that makes sense to YOU — regardless of what other people think of your story.
In this episode, I’m sharing why I’m open about my cancer journey, 2 unspoken cancer truths, and the importance of sharing stories to let someone listening know that they are not alone.
- A common challenge I hear from cancer survivors who want to share their journey
- Why telling your cancer story can bring out people’s experience bias
- Reflecting on why I tell my cancer story from a place of humour and positivity
- What you can learn from the sense making theory to better process your experiences
- The interconnectedness of many different stories on a cancer journey
- And so much more!
