  • Experience them fully. Don’t hold back.
  • Let the problem consume you absolutely.
  • In the beginning, this may be difficult.
  • Walk around, stretch, wash your hands, take a shower, fix supper, go back to doing the ordinary things of your day.
  • I’ll learn whatever you want to teach me.
  • I’m here, I’m listening, I care.
  • I’ll be back tomorrow.
  • I’ll always be here for you.
